Yesterday in A New Spiritual Start I asked you at the start of this new year, to consider refocusing your spiritual life. But how do we go about refocusing our life on God?

Refiner’s Fire
 
Purify my heart
Let me be as gold and precious silver
Purify my heart
Let me be as gold, pure gold
Refiner’s fire
My heart’s one desire
Is to be holy
Set apart for You, Lord
I choose to be holy
Set apart for You, my Master
Ready to do Your will
Purify my heart
Cleanse me from within
And make me holy
Purify my heart
Cleanse me from my sin
Deep within

 

Well first and foremost, as the words of the above song suggest, we must choose to be holy and in choosing to be holy we must be willing to set ourselves apart for God.

Secondly we must give our all to God, so that He can cleanse me from within and make me holy. We can’t truly dedicate ourselves to God if we keep part of ourselves from Him.

Philippians 3:15-16 (The Message)

So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it.

So what now? Pray!

The main way to ask God into your life is to get down on your knees and pray to God, a prayer from deep in your heart. A prayer of sincerity, a prayer of compassion, commitment and dedication to Him.

God will hear your pray, and He will purify your heart.
