Tuesday’s Time

O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise even with my glory (Psalm 108:1).
Let us strive to be able to make a similar statement, as did the psalmist. Let us set our hearts and minds to bring glory to the great and matchless name of God. Ezekiel set his face toward Jerusalem to prophesy against Israel Ezekiel 21:2); Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself (Daniel 1:8); Jesus set His face to go to Jerusalem to die on the cross (Luke 9:51).

What does God know about our hearts? What does God see when He looks at our hearts? The Hebrews writer records that the word of God: is a discerner of thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). God sees and knows more than that which we do, God also sees and knows our very thoughts. 

Is my heart “fixed” toward God?Why would my heart be “fixed” toward God? Because of who God is and what God has done. We owe everything to God: everything we are and have in this life; everything that is made possible in the life to come. Without God we would have nothing and we would be nothing; without God we would not exist; without God there would be no hope of Heaven.

We ask if our hearts are “fixed” toward God, but perhaps the better question is: why would our hearts not be fixed toward God? With some understanding of who God is and what He has done, one would think it impossible not to have our hearts fixed toward God.

Let us fix our hearts toward God and let us diligently serve and worship the great Jehovah.
