Verse of the Day, July 9, 2020
Psalm 51:17 KJV “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.”
A broken spirit is the sacrifices of the Almighty! Contrite heart, what exactly do these mean? In the beginning, GOD only wanted Adam to obey. During the days of the children of Israel being delivered out of Egypt, the ALMIGHTY of Israel only wanted HIS Kingdom to obey, do justly, and walk humbly with their POWER.
They wouldn’t instead they wanted to do sacrifices as the other nations, but GOD does not desire sacrifices. If we are bent on giving sacrifices, the ALMIGHTY desires sacrifices of a broken spirit, a broken and contrite spirit.
He will not despise these sacrifices but will uphold them. A broken and contrite spirit is one of deep sorrow and regret, apologetic for one’s actions, for the actions of one’s forefathers, and for the current actions of one’s brothers, parents, and children.
Let’s us all allow the ALMIGHTY to create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit in us.
Praise the Almighty today!
