King David, after his moral failure with Bathsheba, longed for a similar thing to happen in his heart. Hoping for the stains of his sin to be washed away, he cried out, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me” Psalm 51:10. The good news for him and for us is that our sins can be taken care of. When we need, then we know that our sins will be taken care of. When we need cleansing, John’s familiar words bring hope: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” 1 John 1:9. We can’t cleanse our own hearts, only God can do that. If we confess our sins to Him, He promises to make us totally clean! Confession to God always brings cleansing from God. Have a wonderful day!
