Blog fam! I pray all is well with you! I have an array of interests. I love researching and finding out how things work and why they work that way. I began to think about the heart. This organ is solely responsible for pumping blood throughout the rest of the body. You can live with one lung, one kidney, one leg and the list goes on and on but you can’t live without a heart. When people go into heart failure for whatever reason the push is on to find a new heart for them. Heart transplants are performed when other treatments for heart problems haven’t worked, leading to heart failure. How many of us are in spiritual heart failure but haven’t realized it? We are experiencing different levels of fatigue but continue to push forward and not seek help for the issue. We try various treatments to heal the issues to no avail. We’ve dated thinking that would strengthen our heart; we’ve become successful in our careers yet we’re still in heart failure. With every remedy we try our heart gets weaker and weaker. David said in Psalms 51:10,
“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”
In this instance in David’s life he’s asking God for a heart transplant. He has slept with one of his soldier’s wife and had him killed to fix the situation. Prayerfully you haven’t had anyone killed but we can all relate to David in needing a clean heart. Throughout our lives we experience things that weaken our hearts and produce a spirit that isn’t Christ like. When we surrender and ask God to help us, he begins to teach us and purify us. God will take out our battered and diseased heart and replace it with one that is wrapped in his very essence. He will replace the nasty spirit we’ve picked up along the way with a spirit of peace. God, we thank you for the knowledge we have received. We give you permission to work on our hearts. Help us to be the willing vessels you have called for. We want your will to be done in every area of our lives. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen! Be blessed peeps!
