“I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:10-11
Today, I must ask myself some critical questions. Can I identify with the psalmist when he says this? “I seek you with all of my heart.”
So, do I?
Is my whole heart seeking the Lord? Or do I perhaps have a divided heart? Are there more important things in my life than the Lord? These are hard question I am asked to look at today.
How often do I open my Bible to read, study, memorize the text? Is it a priority in my daily life? How important do I consider time with the Lord? How much of the day is “me time”? How much is His time? Am I serving in any capacity, or do I look at that as someone else’s job?
What I know is that someday I will stand before the Lord and then wish with every fiber of my being that I had been more committed, more dedicated, more diligent in my walk.
And please don’t misunderstand, His love and grace will cover all of my shortcomings. All my flaws, failures, mistakes, and sins will be forgiven. Every tear will be wiped away. But when I see Him face to face, I am absolutely sure everything else will seem so trivial, compared with my overwhelming love for Him. At that point, my heart will be totally committed.
I really want to start that now, and perhaps the key to that is in the rest of this verse, to hide God’s Word in my heart. When my heart is filled up with His Word, there is no room for the cares and concerns that so often plague me.
Lord, today I want to give You my heart. I really want to seek You with my whole heart.
