Devotion 1-31-24, Psalm 51:10 - "Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me." One of Satan's lies is that God hesitates to forgive sin. He convinces people to say, "I have been too bad, sunk too far; God will never forgive me, it is no use." That is a flat out lie from hell. Throughout history people have sinned and people have been forgiven when they actually come to God and repent. David, in Psalm 51, after rape and murder, came to God repenting and asking, "Create in me a clean heart, O God..." We see that God will do His part when we do ours. We are not saved because of our actions, but the actions are required for salvation. Isaiah 1:16 - “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight. Cease to do evil," Then, Isaiah 55:6 - 7 - "Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon." Ezekiel 18:32 - "For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies,” declares the Lord God. “Therefore, repent and live.” God has no pleasure in sin or death. See yourself for what you really are; confess what you really have done. Repent and live in the knowledge of God's forgiveness and abundant grace. Ephesians 2:4 - 7 -"But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus." Hallelujah, Praise God!
