Unite My Heart To Fear Your Name


Psalm 86 is profound in it's personal application to me. Years ago on
one of my first reads through the Bible I stopped stunned at verse 11. "Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name."
Unite my heart David prayed – crying out to God with the ultimate
self-revelation. He declared here to God that he wanted to love the
Lord with all his heart but failed consistently because his heart was
consistently given to two or more masters. Is this not most frequently
our problem? Is this not where we find ourselves too often?
Let us make this day our prayer that God will slash and burn all my
other masters and will himself unite my wayward and weak heart to fear
him alone. Then true wisdom can begin.
And that's the truth.
