Text: Psalms 51:17
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Read: Daniel 1: 3-16
The hefty heart is a proud one and God resists the proud. The contrite heart is however the humble one. God testified of David as a man after His own heart. David was of a contrite heart. He never thought too highly of himself and any time he offended he was quick to repent and seek the face of God. Therefore, he was not despised of God.
Although they were royalty in Israel before the captivity, the four Hebrew boys in the book of Daniel counted themselves of no reputation so that they may be pleasing unto their God. They refused to take the things that would defile them and God accepted them. Through them God did wonders that many generations after are held in awe over.
What is that defiling thing that you crave for? Stop!!! Be ye holy that bears the vessels of the Lord. Touch not the unclean thing and the Lord will accept you. This is the counsel of God to you today. For you that already messed up, return to your Lover with a broken spirit now. Don’t allow the enemy to capitalize on your mistake before you do.
God will not despise a contrite heart. The Lord is willing to use your case to dumbfound the wise people of the world, if only you will yield to His guidance. Daniel and his friends would have been killed by the king if God had not told him the dream of the king and the interpretation thereof. You too can gain access to hearing the inaudible, seeing the invincible and knowing secret things if only you are willing to do God’s biddings by first approaching Him with a broken spirit and a contrite heart.
Drop that evil desire now and focus on that which is right. God will accept you again.
Pray: Lord, I humble myself before you; please forgive my hefty disposition of the past and all acts that proceeded from it in Jesus name. Help me to keep my heart concentrated on you in Jesus name.
