An Undivided Heart

Standard

Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth;  give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.  I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; and I will glorify your name forever.  Psalm 86:11, 12

My heart is undivided.  I want to know God’s way and walk in His truth.  I’m not tempted to follow any other path.  I fear His name.  I want to praise Him with all my heart and glorify His name forever.  When I read these verses, as I did today, my heart leaps and responds and confirms these things within me.

Sometimes though, I forget how MUCH I want these things.  I forget that this really is the most important thing in my life.  I forget to feel the urgency about it.  And then I get distracted and I get caught up in other things that are not bad things – but don’t really take me any farther along the path of walking in His truth or fearing His name.  I don’t walk away from Him so much as I begin to dawdle.  I forget to keep up.

And I get tired.  Tonight I want to be profound.  It’s a lot of pressure.  However, I could very easily put my head down and fall asleep.

So I’ll just say it again, as a reminder…

Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.  I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; and I will glorify your name forever.  Psalm 86:11,12
