Take It To Heart!

February 14th, 2011


Psalm 40

“Too many laws, too little time to learn them!” This is the comment young people often make when learning to drive. The problem arises when these laws are memorized, but not internalized.

David got to experience this. He saw his predecessor try to drive his own life and even his kingdom only by a superficial understanding and applying God’s law. David saw Saul lose grip of his life as God’s servant because his kingdom was centered in activities and battles but not in searching God’s heart.

When God’s laws of love transfer from mental knowledge to heart conviction, surrender becomes natural. We no longer “ought to.” We desire to do His will. We become ambassadors of his kingdom; and he puts a new song in our mouths, an ongoing, living, sacrifice of praise.
