Cleanse Your Spirit With the Word of God
” The words of the LORD are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.” Psalm 12:6
“You have to drink plenty of water,” my mom would say to me whenever I was sick as a child. Drinking fluids helps flush out the harmful bacteria in your body that causes you to be ill.
Guilt, shame, and condemnation are like harmful bacteria in your spirit. Unless they are flushed out by the Word of God, these things will reside within you and cause spiritual damage. They can hinder your personal relationship with the Lord. The very words of the Lord refine us and cleanse us deep within our spirit. Without them we become vulnerable to all of the impurities in this world. It is imperative for you to allow the words of the Lord to settle deep down in your heart. His words will drive out all the things that are unclean and replace them with His truth.
Pray this prayer with me: “Lord, I thank you that I have access to your Word at all times. I ask that as I read Your Word, you would cleanse and purify my heart. Make me whiter than snow. In Your name I pray. Amen.”
