DAY 02

pursue praise

I will praise You with an upright heart, when I learn your righteous ways.
Psalm 119:7

The word of God is powerful. Because it is supernatural. It has the power to reveal Christ to us, and in that change the position of our hearts. This verse today connects our praise with the positioning of our heart. When the positioning of our hearts is connected to our focus on the Word of God great things happen. When our focus is on the Word, then our heart aligns to His, which produces praise.

Has it been hard to praise God lately? If so, there is one thing you can do right now. Put your eyes on the Scriptures. Read, absorb, consumed the Word of God in large chunks. Meditate on the Word. Journal your thoughts about a passage, and from there, let the Holy Spirit transform you from an upright heart.

Pray this simple prayer today,

Lord, give me a hunger for your word. Transform my heart into a heart of thanksgiving. I want to praise you from an upright heart.
