Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God (1 John 3:21).
A clean heart creates a condition of confidence, and with this clean heart we can freely trust God. He greatly wants us to trust Him. In fact, if we don’t have confidence in God, He is not pleased with us.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him . . . (Hebrews 11:6).
How do we clean out our hearts? I ask the Holy Spirit for help, since He knows me better than I know myself. I ask Him to show me the issues that keep me from having a clean heart. He will then remind me of something I said or did, or an attitude that I held that was not godly, and I put myself to the task of seeking freedom and/or forgiveness for this error of my ways. The word sin simply means “missing the mark,” and we can easily miss the mark of obedience or love. It usually takes a slight adjustment, and I’m back to a position of having a heart that does not condemn me. Then I can approach God with full confidence.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
