Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
Pastor Meyers preached a great message last night. The text was from Ezekiel, about the double-life the spiritual leaders were living. They portrayed one thing in public and before the preacher, but what went on in their hearts and in secret were quite contrary. I’m afraid that far to many Christians – at times, myself included – live and portray one reality before men, and another in their hearts.
Today’s Scripture reminded me how important the “meditation of my heart” is before the Lord. He sees, and is very much concerned about what goes on inside. Man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the hearts, and the Bible says that He tries the hearts. I read a few days ago that “with the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure.” I wonder if the reason revival has not broken out, why our followers are stagnant, why our churches don’t produce true disciples, and why the Holy Spirit doesn’t work as He’s capable of working, is because we have one things going on outwardly, but like the church of Laodicea, another inwardly.
My prayer this morning is that “…the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.”
