Create in Me a Clean Heart!
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” – Psalm 51:10-12
In business, it is important to remember that our spiritual health is just as important as our physical health. We may be successful in our careers, but if we neglect our relationship with God, we may lose sight of what truly matters in life.
In this Psalm, David recognizes his sin and asks God to create in him a clean heart and renew a right spirit within him. As professionals, we should also recognize when we make mistakes or fall short of our values and ask God to forgive us and help us to become more like Him.
David also asks God not to cast him away from His presence and not to take His Holy Spirit from him. We should seek to maintain a close relationship with God and not let our careers or other distractions come between us and the Lord. We should always strive to honor God in all that we do, and seek His guidance and wisdom in every aspect of our lives as well as our business decisions.
Finally, David asks God to restore to him the joy of His salvation and uphold him with a willing spirit. In our business lives, we may face challenges, setbacks, and disappointments. But if we keep our focus on God and remember why we are doing what we do, we can find joy and purpose in our work.
So, let us pray that God would create in us a clean heart, renew a right spirit within us, and help us to maintain a close relationship with Him. May He restore to us the joy of His salvation and uphold us with a willing spirit, so that we can be effective witnesses for Him in our businesses and in our lives.
FOR WE ARE GOD’S HANDIWORK, CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS TO DO GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD PREPARED IN ADVANCE FOR US TO DO.
