Pour Out Your Heart
Reading: Psalm 62
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:1-3, 8-9 (NIV)
God knows what is in our hearts. “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews 4:13 Yet God wants us to pour out our hearts to him, to be our refuge. To pour out our hearts implies that we leave nothing undisclosed. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before him, but we are doing the uncovering. We are laying our troubled hearts bare, and in doing so, we find rest and are saved. This requires trust, and as trust builds, so does intimacy with God. “Into me see”.
No situation can come upon me that I need hide from God. Every trouble is a opportunity to increase the closeness of my relationship with God. He is my first port of call. No need to complain or whine to people who are not in a position to change things for me. Instead I can “Be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for me in Christ Jesus.” 1Thess 5:16-18
Thank you Father for the opportunity I have every moment of the day to cry out to you, and pour out my heart. May that closeness be my every day experience as I walk with you.
