The Clean Spirit of the Christian – Being righteous with God is what only the Holy One credits can you with, however, the steps you can take to begin, continue the journey and to finish the race, you need God. Only God can guarantee the clean spirit of the Christian. It will take your will and the conviction of the Holy Spirit to begin the race but to get yourself in the right mood of a clean heart, your will will not be enough but Only God, ‘Gye Nyame’.
There are many things that we may need or want, where we think our strength or knowledge can get us there. SADLY. For the things of God, you will need God to get you on the right course, for the things of the other side, you definitely need the other side. In the trial times, difficult and challenging times, the call for man to get back into the fold and rely solely on God is what is needed to get everything done and done RIGHT.
David acknowledges the place of God in getting him to be right with God, thus he said,
Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. – Psalms 51:10
There are things you are yearning to accomplish, things that seem impossible, things that needs intervention to get done, but know that God is your answer, HE has always been. He is without limitations, do not trust God to bring your salvation but won’t believe that he can change your job. Don’t trust God to lift an ancestral curse off you but can’t imagine that he can make your headache disappear. Our believe in God is being limited by our mindset of putting Him in a box to curtail the things He can and can’t do.
God is the Master, the Creator of the entire universe and all that is in it. He controls it all, everyone including the situation you think is impossible to be done reports to HIM.
The call for God to create in you a clean heart, – The Clean Heart of the Christian, is a call for God to make you walk towards perfection just as Christ was and become one with the Father – John 10:30.
Trust the LORD God to renew in you a loyal(right, steadfast) spirit to help you serve and worship Him to be able to see His glory abound in you and others.
Dear Lord, I acknowledge you as the Master and the Creator, the owner and controller of the universe and all that is in it, I have come to give you honour and plead for you to set my heart and spirit RIGHT, fit for the Glory of your Name.
