DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
A Repentant Heart
This popular scripture was believed to have been written after King David had committed adultery with Bathsheba and the eventual murder of her husband – Uriah. It was legendry because it showed genuine brokenness and repentance from sin. The Bible says it is for God’s mercies that we are not consumed. Christians need to continually appeal to God’s mercy. Because only by His mercy can we receive anything from God including our salvation. We need to acknowledge our sins and omissions, and ask the blood of Jesus to cleanse us – only the blood of Jesus can truly wash sin away from our lives. So we must willingly surrender all to the Lord Jesus for the cleansing blood so that we may have boldness to approach the throne of grace.
Point of Emphasis: God will answer prayers offered by a broken and contrite heart.
Prayer Point: O Lord, replace my stony and obstinate heart with a heart that’s easily broken down at the conviction of Your word.
