David made this plea to God after Nathan the prophet pronounced judgment on him for his behavior in the situation with Bathsheba and her husband.

He slept with a married man’s wife. He sent the man and all of the soldiers under him to their deaths to cover up His sin. Instead of making excuses for his behavior David recognized that his heart was defective.  It was not useless. He didn’t need a new heart. He needed a pure heart. Somewhere along his journey with His Father God, he made a misstep. He wandered away from the oneness that kept him from sin. His plea with God clearly indicated that.

‘Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.conceive…: Heb. warm me Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities” (Ps 51:1-9).

Our thoughts come from our hearts. Our words come from our thoughts. Our actions are the culmination of our spiritual heart condition. So, when we have thoughts, words, and actions that do not show that we are growing closer to God and learning how to love all people better maybe we need heart surgery? Maybe we need Holy Spirit heart surgery because we have defective hearts?

If we do then know this, God is the supreme heart surgeon. He has no failed surgeries. When he performs surgery you don’t have to worry about rejection or an infection that will kill you. Your heart defect will be healed and your heart will become healthy and changed. So, if your thought, words, or actions are causing you and others grief maybe it’s time for a heart purification surgery. Out thoughts are the chains that bind us to sin. Our hearts strayed away from the glory love and might of God will lead us to pick up the chains of sin that bind us. So meet the chain breaker, the way maker, the heart changer who will free you from that bondage!

The chain break will change your heart!
