The Drift of Hearts
Whoever truly captures your heart today will own all your tomorrows.
It is my heart's devotion or its absence today that will impact my present and steer my future.
Only spiritual priorities can serve spiritual momentum. This invites a permanent self-repositioning.
Rightly, God is to be in the position of honor at the right hand. How can this happen?
It is secured by the giving of quality time, not cheap time.
Loving is first dwelling with the Lord, long before it is ever doing for the Lord.
Loving is the readiness to release the pursuits of reward; the divesting of all that hinders and placing the ploughing equipment behind the back. As with Lot's wife, to turn around then is to collapse.
Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, (Hebrews 12:1b)
Loving is both a battle and a call to rest in the presence for those you love.
When the Lord is called upon and loved in the day of peace as in the day of war, the heart does not drift astray.
Devotion time is wickedly quieted by the persistent theme that it is not productive, and therefore of little if any value.
Devotion invites suffering to a person's perceived performance based identity. But value is not found in productivity but who you hang with. Choose royalty.
As your heart drifts towards the Royalty of heaven your soul enjoys a presence it will never grow weary of.
The heart anchored at Jesus' throne cannot drift away.
