Day 15: The true heart
You delight in the truth of the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.
King David wrote Psalm 51 after he had sinned greatly against God. He was well aware of his sins and his conscience stood like a giant before him, constantly reminding him and confronting him with his sins. Yet David understood something about God’s grace. David knew that he could not avoid God or hide the reality of his heart from God, so he confessed everything to God and knew that God would surely forgive him, and God surely did. Be real with God today. God delights in authenticity. He is not fooled when we try to avoid Him or hide our sins from Him. On the contrary, He knows everything and He wants to forgive us. So run to him and ask forgiveness and He will surely forgive you and lavish you in His love and grace.
Prayer: Thank you Lord that you love me so much and that you knew me even before the foundation of the world. Help me Holy Spirit to always be real with you.
