“Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me” Psalm 51:10, NKJV.
Many times we look at the best way for God to prosper us is in terms of money. However, money is the lowest form of prosperity. Desire for God to prosper you in your heart. For a man, financial prosperity is good, but prosperity of the heart is far better.
It is the heart that doesn’t fail in the face of fear and adversity. You speak the truth and love the Father. We sincerely care about people and have open hearts towards the lost. We pray for others as we pray for ourselves. We view sin like God; we have a genuine pursuit to please Him and have a clean heart.
This is what David did when he sincerely prayed this very psalm. Despite his mistakes, the Bible says that he was a man after God’s own heart. His repenting alone caused him to walk in the best prosperity–and if you need to, so will you. Above all, you seek after, prosper in your heart today.
Prayer: Father, thank You this morning for Your word. Above with money and things, prosper this man’s heart. Increase, grow and enlarge my heart for You and for others. Help me hold tight to what is good, and give me a heart that loves You with everything I have. This is my best prosperity. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
