“Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.”
The first step in solving a problem is admitting there is a problem.
The Psalmist recognized that a cleansing was needed.
Do we even realize when there is sin in our lives? We cannot get rid of the sin that displeases the Lord unless we first acknowledge our sin.
How can we cleanse our hearts? By the Word of God.
If we want a cleansed heart, we must take heed to His Word. Jesus spoke of being cleansed through the Words He speaks.
“Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.”
Desire a clean heart today, and prayerfully ask the Lord to show you the sin that needs cleansed.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”
A cleansed heart is only a confession away. No earthly priest is required, we can simply approach the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
1 John 1:9
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must be cleansed through His Word.
Genesis 17-18 | John 9 | Proverbs 9
