A Heart that Trusts God

Devotional picDevotional by Rev. Ross Adams

Good morning to all, today’s verse comes from the Old Testament book of the Psalms NIV.

Psalm 28:7 NIV

7 The LORD is my strength and my shield;
   my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
   and with my song I praise him.


David says the Lord is his strength and his shield, translation, his power and his protection and that his heart trust in him and he is helped. This started me to thinking about the meaning of the word heart. There are many meanings in the dictionary for the word heart, some in reference to the physical muscle that pumps blood throughout your body. But the meanings that struck me are: (1) heart is the center of the total personality, (2) heart is the innermost or central part of anything, (3) heart is the vital or essential part of; core. So let’s put this in David’s Psalm; The center of my total personality trust in him; the innermost or central part of me trust in him; the essential part of, the core of me trust in him and I am helped. Let’s trust God with our core, the essential part of us  the things that make our total personality and not just give lip service on our trust. We will then be able to really sing songs and leap for joy as David did. Live blessed this Monday.
