"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement # 157 Today's Word Is: Clean"

Definition of the word Clean: Means free from contamination, pure, undefiled, to be cleansed, to wash or scrub, to disinfect, to absolve, flawless, or free from sin.

Psalms chapter 24 - 4 : He that hath cleans hands, and a pure heart, who hath not lifted up his soul to vanity;nor sworn decietfully.

Pslams chapter 51 - 10 : Create within me a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me.

Proverbs chapter 16 - 2 ; All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the Lord weigheth the spirit.

Isaiah chapter 1 - 16 : Wash you,make you clean,put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes, cease to do evil.

Isaiah chapter 52 - 11: Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.

Matthews chapter 8 - 2 : And behold , there came aq leper and worshipped him, sayinf Lord, if thou will, thou canst make me clean.

Matthew chapter 23 - 25 ; Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

Luke chapter 11 - 41 : But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you .

Acts Chapter 18 - 6 : And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean : from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.

Today's daily words of encouragement the word today is Clean. Clean means pure, undefiled and flawless. We all as children of God; our father in heaven, need to live clean and acceptable lives to represent Jesus. We all need to look within ourselves and find out, if there anything within us: that will defile us or our godly actions. The bible talks about a glowing clean on the outside, but our insides are filthy. You see, we can't just keep the outside glowing with cleanliness, we also have to keep the inside pure and as white as snow, that means clean of evilness,wickedness, and evil doings that might tempt us. The good thing about keeping our insides spotless, our God knows our hearts and spirits, and we can't foll him not matter how we camouflage things. So, this means that we cannot hide anything form because he created us.

When the bible talks of cleaning ourselves, it's not talking about taking a bath with soap and water, but of course that does help clean the outside. God is talikng about a spiritual clean ing and we can start by praying and asking God for forgiveness of all our sins we have committed unto him and against others. We have to ask him to clean us and our lives up from the heart, Like he cleaned King David up.

King David was a man after God's own heart because, when king David repented, he did it from his heart. King David's words to God was wash me and I shall be whither than snow. when we are clean, we're trying our best to help our brothers and sisters in Christ and not hinder them. We 'll be always trying to build them up in words instead of tearing them down behind their backs. Doing all honest and godly things are cleaning our insides, body mind and heart; so we can be acceptable in Gods eyes, as clean vessels to be used in his service.

      It always amazes me how liars think they have gotten away with something and forget that God does know your heart. This inspiration was very deep. Thank you creativeone59

      Very nice hub and I contemplate "clean". I'm clean, my house is clean. My dishes are clean. Yet I let things "accumulate. It's from a bit of depression possibly. It may be easier to work. It seems I should care more about the "accumulation" and I can't. I'm thinking about it though. Thanks

      Yes creativeone, being clean goes beyond good hygiene. It also entails spirtual cleanness - keeping our minds and hearts free from spirtual and mental defilement. Then and only then can we have freeness of speech regarding Gods words and commandments.

      Creativeone, the choir last evening sung, "Give Me a Clean Heart" and here is your hub focusing on the same.

      God specializes in clean up jobs. As you stated, "We all need to look within ourselves and find out, if there anything within us: that will defile us or our godly actions." AMEN!!

      Thank you for sharing this timeless message.

      Forever His,

    working
