21 Days of Dedication 2022

Day #1

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me.

As the psalmist wrote the words to a beautiful poem that was aimed at the heart of God, no doubt he was interested in the perfect work that only God could do. To “create” something is a process. It takes planning, arranging, possibilities… just a few of the layers that must be considered when a process begins. Perhaps it is difficult to truly see the overall picture from the starting place… but as the prayer commenced, it was connected to a creative word from God.

As the writer placed his pen to the paper he had a great desire… A clean heart. A heart that has no wrinkles nor blemishes. A heart that has possibly been hurt, burdened, broken and perhaps crushed in living life. The author asks God to make in him a heart that was clean. He was not only concerned about his heart, but also his spirit. So his prayer was to “renew” his present spirit and make sure that it is what it should be.

A righteous spirit and a clean heart are both to be desired of God. Only He can truly make the needed changes and only Gods Word has the power to make things right. So today we begin our time of dedication with this prayer. Push aside the distractions and focus on Him!

“A clean heart… a right spirit”.

Take some time out of your busy day and give it to God. Called “Prayer”. Communication with the Master. Spend the time wisely and allow Gods Word to make changes in you and in your situations.

Get out your “Prayer Journal” and take notes while you are in your time of prayer. Track the journey with what God is leading you to do for Him.
