He Cannot Feel at Home in a Dirty Heart

Ps 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.

Regarding iniquity in one's heart speaks to a deep seated sin which we harbor and approve of.

The word regard means to approve of, to take heed to, or to consider.
We are told that our hearts are to be the residence of Christ in us. As long as we allow iniquity to dwell in that holy spot, then God assures us that He has no intention of hearing and answering our prayers.

We've got to get the crud out so that there is nothing between our soul and the Savior, for He can not feel at home in a dirty house.

What sin are you regarding in your heart right now that hinders your prayer?

Allow the blood of Jesus, through His mercy, to wash you white as snow.
