The Melting Pot (Day 2 from Cleansing Thoughts)
Weeks pasted and I tried to put into practice all that the Lord had been showing me and standing on the Word, but something wasn’t but something just wasn’t right. Then one morning during devotions, I was reading in the book of Acts when the Lord ,once again, spoke to my heart, “. . . Your heart is not right in the sight ifGod. Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.” (Acts 8: 21-22, NKJV). I sat there silently for sometime, but on the inside I was arguing with myself to admit what I knew in my heart was true. You see, you can’t fool God, He knew I had been operating out of head knowledge and not heart knowledge. That was a hard reality to face, but I knew I had to ask God to forgiveness and allow Him to once again skim the dross from my heart.
As time pasted, I tried to put into practice all that God had be showing me, am I there yet, no. Sometimes it can be a long journey from the head to the heart. I had, however, learned to surrender all to the Lord. God has chosen all of us for a purpose. When we stand before Him accountable for our words, my prayer is, that when tested by fire all that remains will be gold and silver. A vessel fit for the Masters use.
