How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults. Keep your servant from deliberate sins! Do not let them control me. Then I will be free of guilt and innocent of great sin. Psalm 19:12-13 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Verse one is asking how will I know I am sinning.
Sometimes our thoughts and actions are wrong and we do not even know it. That is why we need the Holy Spirit to reveal them to us. He does this through Bible Verses, a councilor, maybe through something we see or any number of other ways.
He has done it with me through so many ways I cannot remember them all.
We need the best doctor, The Holy Spirit to reveal to us hidden weeds to continue creating a beautiful garden in our souls that delights our Heavenly Love. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Then , there are the sins that have deep roots in our souls. They started out as tiny seeds and have taken root deep in our souls. They are addictions. Not just like alcohol but also habits like maybe refusing to forgive someone. They have become too powerful for us. We need the help of the Master Gardener , The Holy Spirit to purge us of them.
We need the help of the Master Gardener to keep our gardens clean. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Please Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 ) purge me of all the wicked weeds in the garden of my heart so that it will be a beautiful creation You intend it to be.
I humbly ask this in the name of the Master Gardener , Jesus Christ Amen
May you be blessed with The Holy Spirit constantly pulling out the weeds while nurturing the beautiful plants in the garden of your heart.
