A broken spirit

Posted: September 16, 2014 in A broken spirit
” The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and truly sorry heart , O GOD, you will not despise.”

Psalm 51

No human being wants to be broken. No one wants to feel the pain of a sorrowful heart. No body wants to be sorry for the wrong things they have done. We want to be happy – to feel we are better than other people, and stronger and smarter than people we despise.

If it was up to us, we would never say sorry, and just keep building ourselves up in confidence and status. We would never find forgiveness and we would never find GOD.

To have a humble heart, means that God has to deal with us, bring us down to size and help us to see how bad our wrongdoing is. This is painful, and we have to see how bad and we really are , before we will even think about coming to JESUS for forgiveness.

God will not despise us if we come to him and repent of our sins, and put all our trust in Him. God wants us to be true and admit our fault, and he will bring us into his family, and teach us how to love and obey Him, and walk with Him all our lives.

“Create in me a clean heart, O GOD…”
