The Father’s work in our heart must precede any effort of ours for Him…

I’m struck this morning by the clarity of the Psalmist in the way things actually work…

God empowers. Then we act in service…

“I will run in the way of your commandments when you enlarge my heart!”‭‭ Psalms‬ ‭119:32‬ ‭

My heart is incomplete and incapable of good until God steps in.

When He steps in, our loving Father acts in us so that He may guide my ways…

“Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:37‬ ‭ESV‬‬

But if I do not sit with Him, how can I hear Him? 

“I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on your statutes.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:48‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Turn to Scripture friend… Turn to the God who loves and wishes to forgive and fill and change and use you for HIS glory!
