Daily Devotional: "Create in me a clean heart, O God..."

"Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me." Psalm 51:10  
 Everyday, millions of ladies struggle through their lives at work or school, putting on a fake smile while their heart is aching. Ever feel that way?

This is the first of many daily devotionals that I've decided to feature on my blog. It is so important now-a-days to have a reflected heart and to self-examine ourselves in Christ's light. Yet more than that, go to Him for change.

This passage is one of my favorites. I will be saying that a lot, since pretty much the entire Bible is my favorite! :) However, when you read the above scripture, you can feel the brokenness and longing that the Psalmist was feeling. There's a sense of inadequacy, something we all to often feel. There's also a glimpse into a repentant heart, one that craves cleanliness inside their inner person.

Today, approach the Throne of grace and love. Sitting at the feet of Jesus, lay your burdens down and say this passage. Allow yourself to be touched by God's Spirit. The only way to a clean heart is to approach the One who is eternally clean and pure! Jesus wants to relieve you from your heaviness:

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30

We were not created to carry the whole world! We were created to know the One who has already done it!
