Do you filter your water?
Our drinking water is already filtered in Canada, but still many of us use bottled waters or filter our tap water with purifiers. We don’t necessarily see anything in the water or physically react to “tap water” but we feel the need to further cleanse it.
This need/desire to clean every possible blemish is so essential when it comes to our spiritual lives.
Do you ask God daily to purify your heart?
Our actions might seem “clean” to our friends and family or even to ourselves. But we need to look to God to check the status of our heart and our thoughts. God wants us to be Holy.
1 Peter 1:16
“For it is written, be Holy for I am Holy.”
There’s an old song, and it goes like this “Purify my heart, cleanse me from
within and make me Holy.”
Do you desire to be Holy?
It’s definitely not easy, because without God, we can become judgmental and self righteous. This is why we need the Holy spirit. Remember, we can never be too Holy, it’s a daily desire we must have in everything that we do.
How can we know the heart of God if our thoughts do not align with him?
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
As you examine your heart today, ask God to cleanse you from the inside out. To see the things that God sees and to know the heart of God.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you and lead me to eternity with you.”
