O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. Psalm 108:1
The desires of most people change on a regular basis. What is their greatest desire changes tomorrow. Businesses, movies, music all rely upon this in trying to get people to purchase and do more things. There are very things that most people are locked down upon as being a part of their desires to the point that nothing will deter them or stop them from holding onto. Constant change of heart is the only constant in the majority of people’s lives.
David tells God that his heart is steadfast and that he will sing and give praise to God.
The world is constantly changing and desires everyone to be willing to change. There is no solid foundation on which the world stands. Everything depends upon how an individual person feels in the moment. Confusion and chaos reign in the lives of most people around the world.
Believers have a solid foundation on which they can stand. It is Jesus Christ and God’s word. The challenge comes in whether a believer is willing to have a steadfast heart about God and His word.
Many are willing to believe God’s word in times of trouble, when crying out to God for help, but forget it during the good times and everything is going right. They are wishy-washy, flowing with the tides, rather than having a steadfast heart after God’s heart.
One needs to make a solid choice in one’s heart as to what will be believed and stood upon and who will be God in the heart. God is to be praised and glorified during the good times as well as during the times of trouble and difficulty. It is a choice that is made in the heart to be steadfast in praising God.
You will always have some days that are good and easy going and some days in which everything appears to be going wrong. During both sets of times, you have to make a choice as to where your foundation lies and make your heart steadfast. Do not allow yourself to be like the world and change your heart’s desires with every situation but focus your heart upon God. Sing and praise God in the good times as well as in the extremely difficult and painful times of life.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will have a steadfast heart after God; that God will give you strength to follow after Him; and that you will sing and praise God at all times.
