Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain! – Psalm 119:36
Left to itself my wicked heart would only live for me. But what a small, shallow, sad life that would be! Oh how desperately I need God!!! There’s so much life to be had in God—His will, His work, and His way. There’s so much to be discovered on the adventure that is life in Christ, following Him. So much freedom can be found in reckless abandon of self and in joyful obedience to the only One who loves us purely. So much love is found in Faith.
Heavenly Father, deliver us from self. Give us a heart that wants You and Your will above all else. Help us to, by your grace, soar above the trivial, up high, where Your Truth prevails. Set us apart to the life you have for us, Lord—the one and only Good Life.
