“Uphold me with a generous spirit.” (Psalm 51:12)
Could there be a scarier spiritual dynamic than the hardening of the heart? Could anything be sadder to watch than a warm and tender man become cold and hard?
What’s worse than coming to a place where you actually have the capacity to feel right about what God says is wrong? What could be more threatening than the thought that, we have an amazing capacity to deceive ourselves?
David prays for a broken heart because, in his confession, he’s realized that his heart has become hard.
Here’s the thing we all need to remember: sin is not an event; No, it’s a progressive movement of the heart moving more distant from the heart of God.
Take a Moment- One, is there a place where you need to experience the heart-softening power of God’s grace?
Two, where has your conscience grown hard to something that needs to be dealt with? Equally, is there a place where you have been unwilling to do what God is calling you to do? Just food for thought. Happy Friday!
