The Spirit and Heart God Desires

Scripture: Psalms 51:10

 KJV: “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”

 GNT: “Create a pure heart in me, O God, and put a new and loyal spirit in me.”


Let’s start by briefly describing what the heart communicates from a scientific point of view. The human heart is a muscular, four-chambered organ that is roughly the size and shape of a man’s closed fist, with two thirds of the mass located to the left of the midline. The parietal layers of a serous membrane line the pericardial sac, which houses the heart.

In most animals, the heart is a muscular organ. Blood is pumped by this organ through the circulatory system’s blood vessels. The blood that is pumped around the body carries nutrients and oxygen to the body while transporting metabolic waste, like carbon dioxide, to the lungs. The human heart is situated in the mediastinum, the area of the chest between the lungs that is roughly the size of a closed fist.

The Bible describes the heart as the source of life or power. Therefore, it refers to one’s mind, soul, spirit, or entire emotional make-up and comprehension. According to the Bible, David required God to not only create in him a clean heart, but to continually renew it with a right Spirit within him. If we want to have an impact on our society, it is crucial that we realize this and fervently demand action right away. Many of us have a persistent desire to spread and teach God’s Word to everyone as God intended. However, I have found that you are unable to do this if your heart was not created and is not continually renewed with the appropriate Spirit to carry out those actions. Furthermore, David’s request for a pure heart in verse 10 was his idea.

Then, as David promises, “I will teach rebels thy ways, and sinners shall be converted to thee.” You are also being called by God to spread your faith to others. We can have a clean heart by simply following Jesus every day and putting our faith and love in Him.

 What does it mean to have a pure heart and steadfast spirit?

It means to always be considerate of others’ time and to make them feel valued. A person with a steadfast spirit is honest about what they don’t know, but they never waver in their conviction that they have the capacity to pick up new skills quickly and develop. A person with a strong spirit treats everyone with respect.

 How do you keep your heart clean?

Here are some key elements to consider in your fight for purity as I round up.

1- Get a New Heart. We are not pure people by nature, therefore constant renewal of the heart is necessary.

2-Love What God Loves. Indeed, this is the heart of the matter: having a heart that fears and loves God and wants to do the things that bring Him glory.

3- Control Yourself.

4- Be Accountable.



God Bless you
