“He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness, and speaks truth in his heart.”
This is the answer to the question, “O Lord, who may abide in your tent? Who may dwell on Your holy hill?” (vs. 1) I thought that it was interesting that not only are we to speak truth, but we are to speak truth in our hearts. Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?” It has been a journey trying to understand my heart, letting Jesus reveal my heart, and then allowing Him to transform it. I am not there yet, as this is the journey of life. Both the Psalmist and Peter says to “Seek peace and pursue it.” Proverbs tells us to “Get wisdom! Get understanding!” So, I ask that you also seek truth. Seek the truth of God and seek truth in your own hearts. It will be a journey of joy, of heartache, of confession, of humbling, of peace, and of revelation. But most of all it is a journey of God and to God. Don’t be afraid to go deeper in with your Savior. Surgery hurts for the moment, but brings relief and healing.
May you know the freedom of Christ in all its fullness as you seek wisdom and understanding through the Word of God and as you lay your heart bare before Jesus, Your Savior.
