Breaktime: Admit Your Need?

Admit Your Need

10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10

Creation is bringing something into existence that wasn’t there prior. Which in this passage means David was seeking God to create a pure heart within him. He understood that his heart wasn’t genuine, and David couldn’t purify his heart for himself. David knew he needed God’s creative power to work in his heart, and he desired God to totally change the inner man.

What a beautiful picture of what true humility can look like. We can try and be good enough and fail over and over again. We can try to outweigh the bad by doing good, and hopefully, our heart will become better. But we soon realize we don’t have the strength to make our inner self pure. We require help and denying the need will only keep the ego striving.

Isn’t it time to admit the need for a pure heart? The kind of heart God breathed his creative power into at creation and have our heart made new again. When our heart has God’s creative power, we are renewed, and the motives and desires change from once pleasing the flesh and ego, to worshiping God in all areas of our life. Friends, this requires us to come before God in humility, admitting our need of His presence.
