Take Out the Trash

Take Out the Trash

I just got home on Monday Night; tomorrow is Trash day! So tonight, I gather up all the garbage cans and take the trash out, most of it anyway. There is some stuff in our house, in my office that I am hording. I don’t really need it, but then again, I might. You have anything like that. Some of this junk is in piles, I keep moving it around. It clutters my office, and it does occupy my time as I must move the piles out of the way to get to the things I might need.

We have this kind of junk in our spiritual lives also. The Psalmist says this:

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.

Psalm 139:23

If we are going to walk fully with Jesus, we first must have the right Mindset, as we spoke of yesterday. However, we also need God to search our hearts and show us any garbage we are hoarding that needs to be removed. Then when God points it out, GET RID OF IT. Don’t rationalize it, hid it, or explain why it is different than it looks, just get rid of it.  

Ask God to do a search of your heart today! Listen to His voice, act on His revelation! Have a great day, I continue to pray for you. Let’s talk again tomorrow!
