YOUR ENTIRE HEART
Read: Psalm 9
Key Verse:“I will praise You, O Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders.” Psalm 9:1
The heart and the mouth are connected. When you read what David wrote in this psalm, does it resonate with your life? What is holding you back from praising God with all of your heart? 1) Self-centered: It is difficult to fully worship God if you are too wrapped up in yourself. 2) Hidden Sin: Turn to the Lord for cleansing and a new start. 3) Pride: If you prefer to attempt to be self-sufficient, your worship will be minimal. A healthy heart is a heart filled with praise.
When your heart is full of praise, your words will match it. Out of the abundance in the heart, your speech overflows. Overcome common hurdles. 1) Fear: You will not say what you know is true because you are more concerned that people will reject you. 2) Lies: Do not be convinced that your testimony sis boring, your words have no influence, or God doesn’t care if you remain silent. None of these are true. Your heart and your mouth are made for God and His purposes! Stay bold for Jesus!
