6 Behold, you desire truth in the inward being; make me to know wisdom in the inmost part.1 [To receive wisdom, you must turn inward, to wait on God in humble silence, listening, watching, hearing, and then obeying. You hear Him speak His word from within your heart; that is the word that the Apostles preached. From the Word of the Lord within: "Turn inward to discover the mysteries." Because what may be known of God is revealed in them; Rom 1:19. To know wisdom in the inmost part is not head knowledge; it is understandings and teachings received by revelation from God, which if heeded the words are engrafted and written in your heart, strengtening the inner man, which is the life of God, Christ within you; for the words that He speaks to you are Spirit and life-giving, John 6:63 . Since Christ is the truth and the wisdom of God, both are written in your heart.]
22 For I delighted in the law of God in the internal inner man.
19 Because what may be known of God is revealed in them; for God has shown it to them.3 [Revelations come not from reading about God, nor from hearing someone talk about God, for God is only known by revelation in your heart, where you hear him and see His teachings about sin, righteousness, and Himself. George Fox wrote: "The Father is in you all, Christ is in you, and the Kingdom of Heaven is in you; there, in your hearts, is where you will find them all. Know him there searching your hearts, and find him there trying your minds and hearts; incline your ears, and give ear to him there, who will render to everyone of you according to your words and works whether they are good or evil,"]

2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.2
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.3
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts2 by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height [of His love];
19 So to know the love of Christ, which exceeds all knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, [From the Word of the Lord within: "Hope releases the power of God to change you." What hope? The true hope: the hope to become pure and sin free, to be translated into the kingdom while still on earth, and to enter union with Christ and the Father.]
|2 Corinthians 4:16|
16 For this reason we do not lose heart; for though our outward man is perishing, the inward man is renewed day by day.
33 "But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel. After those days," says the Lord, "I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
|Romans 2:29 |
29 But he is a Jew, who is one inwardly; and the circumcision is that of the heart, by the Spirit,5 and not by the letter; whose praise is not from men, but from God. [The Spirit circumcises your heart, cutting away the sins as you wait on God to receive his grace that both charges sin and then removes sin, purifying a peculiar people zealous for good works. Reading about sin in the Bible does not remove the desire for sin from your heart; only the Spirit does that.]
