CLEANSE YOUR HEART AND TRY, TRY AGAIN

Devotional for Friday February 4, 2022


Morning Matthew 15:10-20

Noon Psalm 2

Evening Proverbs 4:23


The Word of God says that what comes out of our mouth is what abounds in our heart. So, if we try to change our way of speaking and expressing ourselves, but we have no positive results, then we must examine our hearts and remove everything negative from our past. Let’s start a new life with Christ, filling our hearts with the good things that only God can give. One of the apostle Paul’s messages has helped me both spiritually and personally: “Examine everything; hold fast to what is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21). A short message reflecting a great teaching. Let's not allow our hearts to be filled with more deceitful actions, feelings and things that are not useful in our lives. Our mission as true Christians is to transmit the teachings that Jesus Christ gave us. We should try to proclaim his love, mercy, and service to others. Let’s ask our Lord to give us a clean and pure heart as only he can grant it. Let the great love of God not only change your life, but also your heart. O Lord, put in me a new heart!

Morning Matthew 15:10-20

10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:

11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.

16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.


Noon Psalm 2

1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.


Evening Proverbs 4:23

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
