I’ve asked God for a cleansing or “purge” as we say in Trinidad. However a purge is only a purge when a purging solvent or mixture is ingested for such purposes. Saying that a purge is needed and not acting on it, makes it only a thought. In my case, the mixture I would use is the word of God. How do you get rid of negative thoughts and actions? Simply by using and applying the word. During a purge, if you are thinking about unclean things, you can apply (speaking it) – Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. OR you can declare that you are keeping your mind on things above and not under – Colossians 3:2 – Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
Those are examples used but It does not matter what the problem is, all the answers are found in the word of God. This therefore leads us to the word. We should be daily consuming the word of God. Meditating on it and engraving it in our hearts so that we can live (Proverbs 4:4). Then we will daily be cleansed and be Holy as he is Holy (1 Peter 1:16). Do you need a cleansing? It’s time to get into the word.
