Repent: ”to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one's life”
“Then I will teach your ways to rebels, and they will return to you. Forgive me for shedding blood, O God who saves; then I will joyfully sing of your forgiveness. Unseal my lips, O Lord, that my mouth may praise you. You do not desire a sacrifice, or I would offer one. You do not want a burnt offering. The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God. Look with favor on Zion and help her; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Then you will be pleased with sacrifices offered in the right spirit—with burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings. Then bulls will again be sacrificed on your altar..” (Psalm 51:13-19 NLT)
Hello Family, David could not confidently resume his reign as king. Until he went to God and dealt with the sin he committed. Only after does restoration come, only after can we continue to effectively flow in the gifts and calling that God has given us.
Again this is all about the heart. You can sing as loud and as enthusiastically as you want if your heart has not changed and you have not truly repented then all you are doing is wasting your breath. God is not impressed with extravagance that is not backed up by truly repentant heart. It is all about the heart! When your heart is right then your worship can be received.
Much Love & God Bless
