Spring Cleaning of the heart

We used to fellowship with a group of believers that were so hungry for Holiness. Not the rules, but the true heart of Holiness. Hard to find folks like that. In fact I can’t say that I know very many. Ones who seek His heart and care that He cares about daily decisions we make. Folks who heed His vice even if it doesn’t exactly make sense at the time. Now I know there are some folks like that who take things to far but to be honest I would rather surround myself with folks who are too serious about God rather than those who are not serious enough. Anyway. So we would meet with these hungry folks once a week, and there were some with some prophetic giftings. And before we got to the actual meeting place it was like the priests of old who would cleanse themselves first, you just knew that you knew if you were hiding anything it would be found out. If you had bad feelings for someone or had sinned without repenting or ANYTHING, you knew it would come out, and that was how we wanted it. We were serious about getting real with God. What I wouldn’t give to have some more of that. But since we knew things would get real, we learned to live real, we learned to take a spiritual accounting, asking the Lord to examine us just like King David did.

Most folks these days are too busy trying to hide things from the Lord rather than asking Him personally to uncover them.

He wants us to come clean before him. You can’t use a dirty rag to clean up the town. It is only when we get real with Him that He gets real about using us. When was the last time you asked Him to clean the dark closets of your heart?

Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.

See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalms 139:23-24
