Psalm 86:11 Teach me Your way, Lord, that I may rely on Your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart that I may fear Your name.
This says so much – that I may fear the name of the Lord, not the name of the problem or the group or the responsibility or the illness or the threat; but that I may rely on God as He is faithfully good, that I may not rely on anything else, whether it promises to rescue OR whether it promises (reliably or faithfully) to be foreboding. I find that sometimes Christians go around glum, resentful, ready to post their anger, frustration, and annoyance on social media, and somehow all that sneaks its way into a self-elevation couched in some human-crafted form of propriety. And that displays the divided heart. God of limitless grace, You have to teach me! My own pursuit of that undivided heart always boomerangs…teach me to fear Your name above all else.
