This page features Psalm 108:1.


Inspiration

to steady

our commitment to the Lord.


Our Featured Verse says:

My heart is FIXED -

on you,

Lord.

-

O God, my heart is fixed;

I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

Verse 1 KJV

-

And another Bible verse echoes:

My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed:

I will sing and give praise.

Psalm 57:7 KJV


Many of our problems are caused because

we have our heart  fixed on  something

other than God.


We are wise when we

daily

and intentionally

put God on the throne of our life.




In order to please God and live the best kind of life,

we must surrender our days

to our Lord - Jesus Christ.



So teach us to number our days,
that we

may gain

a heart of wisdom.

Psalm 90:12 NKJV



If God is "sometimes" on the throne of our heart,

then we are a double-minded man or woman.

James 1:8 tells us

that a double-minded man is unstable.


Unstable:


Perhaps you have seen people

who focus on God on Sunday

but during the week, their mind is fixed

on other things.


Stable:

A fixed heart is a stable heart.

That person habitually communes
with God
throughout the day.





Pray without Ceasing


The Bible says:

Rejoice evermore.

Pray without ceasing.

In every thing give thanks:

for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus

concerning you.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 KJV


Pray without ceasing

means:

we work toward

becoming continually aware

of the presence of God

and we talk with him

throughout the day -

just as if he was a real person

who was with us throughout the day.

That is also called

abiding in him.




To elaborate:

This means being aware of him in each moment

and

 - including him and welcoming him -

in all our moments.

Also...

Leaning on him throughout the day

and

Seeking his wisdom throughout the day.

Wisdom


In order to walk closely with Jesus, 
we need 
to purify our heart from 
all
things
that 
pull us away from God.



The closer you walk
with God, 

the less room for anything to come between.

Unknown author



O God, my heart is fixed;

I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

he is my defence;

I shall not be moved.
