THEN sacrifice and service to God is pleasing to him again Verse 13. THEN teaching, preaching and witnessing is effective once more Verse 15. Praise is once again a delight to God Verses 11/12. Spirit-filled joy returns How do we respond and get back to a renewed and guarded heart? RECOGNITION, ADMISSION and CONFESSION of our sin ASKING FOR RE-CREATION OF A PURE HEART ACCEPTANCE (believing God and forgiving ourselves) There are BIBLES in the cupboard at the back of the church.
