Psalm 119 is a wonderful piece of art. But beyond that, it manages to show us a heart that is completely focused on surrendering to God, and being obedient to Him; A true Heart of Worship. This heart realizes the true sovereignty of God. The power and truth that are in the Word He has given us. The following are just a few verses that jump out at me in the first quarter of Psalm 119 alone:

I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
– Psalm 119:11

Open my eyes that I may see
wonderful things in your law.
-Psalm 119:18

I run in the path of your commands,
for you have set my heart free.
-Psalm 119:32

Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word.
-Psalm 119:36-37

Oh how we should all long to have a heart for God like that of the writer of this Psalm. I strongly encourage you to take time to read this Psalm in it’s entirety. We each need to pursue a heart of true surrender and obedience to God; a true heart of worship. Though I would love to pray to have this heart in myself tonight, and wake up with it tomorrow, it is not that simple…and it shouldn’t be.

To come to have this heart, we need to press through our own selfish desires. We need to study God’s Word when it’s the last thing we want to do. We need to pray when we have no energy left. We need to seek God with all that we are, even when we don’t feel like it, and along that journey, we will realize that our heart has begun to take this form; a true heart of worship.

Let us press into God, press on through our trials, and truly surrender our hearts to God.

In God’s Love and Grace,

    This is what it’s all about. Thanks Colton! “We need to seek God with all that we are, even when we don’t feel like it”

    Good words!

    We were made for God. We were made to worship.

    It is all about Him.
