“When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.”
What I believe Jesus is saying here is we can look good on the outside, clean, well groomed and looking upright. But, what’s going on inside?
“Then he says, I will return to my house from which I came. And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.”
Eventually, when we are a believer who looks good on the outside, that’s when the enemy comes back and wreak’s havoc in our lives!
With this said, we really need to allow the LORD to come into our hearts and clean us from the inside out!
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
Like David, we can make all kinds of mistakes, but until we let the LORD in and create a clean heart in us, we can only look good on the inside!
“Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by your generous Spirit.”
Today, if you want real joy, real peace and the LORD’S peace, then allow Him complete entrance into your heart and let Him take over! Have a blessed day in the LORD!
