How this is written in the King James Version of the Bible is: “that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. ” The word “our” is italicized. As it has been recognized these words have been inserted to help with the meaning of the verses, however if we do look at the verse without the this word it does take on a different meaning.
We are here to apply hearts unto wisdom not only our own, but for all we are with. Of course, we have to being doing it for ourselves which then enables us to do if for others.
I find it good to not just take the words in the bible only unto ourselves, but to actually realize the divine commission we have to bless the world.
Let us apply our heart unto wisdom, as we apply the heart’s of those in our world unto wisdom.
These words have made me take notice of them and have prompted me to consider them more. First, to be upright in heart I find means to acknowledge and enact the spirit of these words in my living. To be upright in heart means to give attention to that which actually makes me upright in heart. To give attention to the qualities of spirit that makes me remember what is most important. To give attention to that which acknowledges something higher than my conscious awareness. I find that orienting to attitudes of thankfulness and integrity it positions my conscious awareness to receive something of strength and love from I sense the source of myself.
Here I find a greater awareness of my reason for being in how my life expression can be of glory.
May my words touch something in you that you may know more of the glory of your own life expression.
As we receive into our conscious awareness the reason for our being we come to realize we are here to share in the One glory of the expression of the LORD on earth.
And here we know more of what the words actually mean, “And all the upright in heart shall glory.”
I find this a wonderful verse to consider. May you find the same.
Even in our darkest moments the LORD is near and renews our soul as we yield all to Him. Let our paths be made straight as we know the way of the LORD.
When we are having a challenge bringing to heart these words, “He restoreth my soul,” allows for our mind to choose a healthy course of action. It is important to note to bring the words to heart. To feel them not just to think about them. Let them fill your heart where you have an feeling orientation to the words. Here we can more rest in them. Let’s consider these words in the love of our heart allowing our mind to be enlightened.
Have they that love thy law—consider these words deep in heart. As we do our perspective is refreshed. Here we come to rest and know a peace that puts it all in perspective. Why not live each moment whereby we are in position to SEE and not be vulnerable to taking offense. This does take practice for the prevalence of taking offense has been with us for millenniums. Why not be an individual example of one who remains in the heart place of “loving thy law.”
As we each do so world transformation takes place moment by moment. Let’s consider this meditation in the depth of our hearts making corrections as necessary and establishing the sound emanation of love through us all.
As we mature and find confidences in our outer expression it becomes even more essential to fix our hearts in singing and giving praise unto the Lord. No matter what glory or just the opposite may be given to us as our hearts are so fixed the stage is set for increasing stability and our purpose to ever be so fulfilled. There is always more glory to be known ultimately for the glory of the Lord to shine all about.
This verse goes on to say “harden not your heart, as in the day of provocation, as the day of temptation in the wilderness.” For in order to hear the voice of the LORD there has to be an open pliable heart. A heart that is willing to be in a state of possible unknowing for a time symbolized by the wilderness. Each day we have opportunity to reside in a heart state that can be characterized by attitudes of thankfulness, appreciation, patience and PRAISE (TAPP). As we do it gives us a greater opportunity to hear what is required of us in every given moment. Here we can come out of the wilderness and into the state of harmonized expression with the LORD.
According to the integrity of his heart. What beautiful words! As I consider what these words mean I consider my world in light of them. I am moved to think about how I feed those in my world with the integrity of my heart. The integrity that uprights myself, the integrity that has the best interests of others at heart and the integrity that has the interests of the Lord at heart. As I view these thoughts I find I am in a place that is filled with peace and ease. In a place that is fulfilling that has its own rhythm. A place that allows an infilling of my soul paused in this moment to let something of peace and ease express through me. Here I sense a synchronicity with divine order. Here there is a fullness and an interest to fulfill my divine commission. As I take this moment to receive and appreciate it I am further moved to view my day and my life for the purposes of letting this place of integrity expand on earth. Here I invite you to share with me in the wonderful graciousness of this space enjoying divine synchronicity being filled to overflowing. As we know this overflowing through ourselves we look out upon our words with blessing eyes. Here we bless our world. Let’s continue to know what it means to be in place feeding our world according to the integrity of our heart.
This verse is found in psalm 77 and it starts with a word about considering “the days of old, the years of ancient times.” As a note to this meditation these words got me thinking that if and when these words were written and to us I gather we think that when the psalms were written they were the ancient times. However, if back then when this psalm was written and the psalmist was referring to ancient times then when would they be referring to? This brought to mind the time referred to as the Garden of Eden before the fall of man. As it is referenced later in this psalm by the words “the years of the right hand of the most high.” The time when divine order actually reigned on earth. I found as this dawned in my awareness I have been intrigued how spiritual discoveries are found in the light of the words, “I commune with my own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.”
I have been further drawn to consider the words “and my spirit made diligent search.” I have found as I meditate on these words they bring a greater sense of centering. I can see more clearly the spirits that present before my awareness in terms of seeing if they are destructive or constructive. From this awareness it has been easier to make more consistent choices to be aligned with that which increases the Name of the Lord on earth. Here are the essences and key to waxing strong in grace and stature.
