Purify me from sin…and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Hide your face from my sins, and wipe out all that I have done wrong. Create a clean heart in me, O God, and renew a faithful spirit within me. Do not force me away from your presence, and do not take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore the joy of your salvation to me, and provide me with a spirit of willing obedience. (Pss 51:7, 9-12 GW)

God alone is able to purify our heart and make it clean. He alone renews the inner spirit and restores. Our only useful effort is to surrender and submit our will to Him. ©dailydevo2012
