Topic: PURSUING GOD WHOLE-HEARTEDLY
Dedication to God is not having a heart that follows the world in one part and follows God in another. It is not having a heart whose part follows the devil and another part follows God.
SCRIPTURE: Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. Psalm 86:11
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
When you are dedicated to God, your heart is not divided but united in the pursuit of God.
It has been established that understanding is key to outstanding performance in any endeavour. When you understand why you should do something, doing it becomes easy.
SEEDS OF DESTINY FOR 15TH JULY 2020: MESSAGE
In the same manner, knowing the purpose of dedication will greatly enhance the lifestyle of dedication to God. One of the reasons for dedication is that man was created by God and for God (Revelation 4:11). If we know that we did not create ourselves and that we are not meant to live for ourselves, then dedication becomes easy.
Now, having seen the reason for our dedication to God, what, then does it mean to be dedicated to God?
Dedication to God implies a wholehearted pursuit of God. It is a heart that is united in the pursuit of God. One may ask, “Why a united heart?” It is because one’s heart can be divided. This is why Psalm 86:11 says, Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
So, when you are dedicated to God, your heart is not divided but united in the pursuit of God. Dedication to God is not having a heart that follows the world in one part and follows God in another. It is not having a heart whose part follows the devil and another part follows God. It is not having a heart with a cocktail of worldly and heavenly inclinations. Rather, dedication is having a united heart, a heart united in the pursuit of God.
It is allowing every department of your heart to be united in the pursuit of God. It is not a heart that is divided or distracted by several activities, fantasies and fallacies of this world. It is having a heart that beats and pants after the Presence of God like the heart of David who said, As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?”(Psalm 42:1-2).
Beloved, refuse for your heart to be divided in the pursuit of God. Pursue God with focus and unity of heart. This is what it means to be dedicated to God. And that is what brings distractions in time and eternity.
Remember this: When you are dedicated to God, your heart is not divided but united in the pursuit of Go
