Although God’s heart toward us is unchanging (James 1:17), our hearts often change.
Is your heart soft toward the Lord?
One day, we listen when the Lord prompts us to do (or stop doing) something; another day, we insist on making our own choice.
Is your heart pure toward the Lord?
When we’re inspired, we run after the Lord with all our heart; when inspiration fades, pursuing the Lord takes second place to our other goals.
Is your love for the Lord burning?
Sometimes we’re full of love for Him; at other times, our hearts are cold, uninterested in the things of God. At still other times, we may be lukewarm, indifferent toward God.
Is your heart at peace before God?
Although the Lord lives in our spirit, our sins and failures grieve Him and interrupt our fellowship with Him. We must confess our sin to the Lord and be cleansed by His blood in order to maintain our fellowship with Him.
Ultimately, the Lord wants to build up our hearts into a condition in which we’re steadfast before Him, occupied with Him, saturated with Him, and looking forward to His return. First Thessalonians 3:13 says, “So that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints.”
This song is a prayer seeking the Lord for the condition of our heart—to have a heart soft, pure, loving, at peace, and eventually established blameless in holiness. May the Lord grant us all such a heart!
