A New Heart… A New Start
There are times, perhaps brought on by trying circumstances, when many believers would like to throw up their hands and cry to God for a chance to start over. For one it may be a personal moral failure that has crippled their relationship with Jesus Christ; others feel the frustration of failing to make positive changes in their lives; some have simply grown tired of the conflict between worldliness and godliness; an illness or personal crisis or foolish decision has left others downcast. Whatever the reason, the need of a fresh start, a new beginning, becomes acute. If you can identify with any of these situations and could use new spiritual and emotional freshness, this devotional study is for you. Using the experience and prayer of David found in Psalm 51 as a basis, you can have a new start and a fresh, clean heart. King David’s moral failure did not end his story. Faced with a crisis of spiritual surrender, David pressed through failure and found a new higher place: “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Drawing upon the resources that God has provided, even the greatest difficulties can be transformed through a deeper surrender to Christ and an encounter with His grace at a depth before unknown. Designed to fit easily into a busy schedule, day by day this study will help you find new inclination, new motivation and new direction to live a life set apart for God.
