An Established Heart
Psalm 112 explains the blessings of the person who chooses to be a doer of the word. This is the person who has an established heart.
An established heart is not blown by the winds of adversity. It is not motivated by fear but by faith in God’s unfailing promises. It has the patience to stand its ground when tests and difficulties come. It doesn’t cast away its confidence, but knows that being a doer of the Word brings results (Hebrews 10: 35-36).
A person with an established heart will attract the blessings of God upon his home and his family. His obedience will affect his family for generations to come.
The established heart gives generously and is kind and considerate of others. It is not moved when difficulties come because it is grounded in the Word.
The person with an established heart is a light and example for others to follow. He gives encouragement to faint and to the weak, and becomes a source of hope in times of great need.
An established heart gives a sense of righteousness, peace, joy, hope, rest, health, and prosperity. An established heart breeds optimism in the darkest test. It is surer of the promises of God’s Word than the rising sun!
Your heart becomes established by daily meditating on, confessing, and practicing the Word. Take time today to establish your heart in the Word. You’ll gain inward strength and outward stability. The blessings of God will be upon you, and you will be a source of light and aid to all around you.
Psalm 112 -NLT Praise the Lord! How joyful are those who fear the Lord and delight in obeying his commands.(2)Their children will be successful everywhere; an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.(3 They themselves will be wealthy, and their good deeds will last forever.(4)Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.(5)Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly.(6)Such people will not be overcome by evil. Those who are righteous will be long remembered.(7)They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.(8)They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.(9)They share freely and give generously to those in need. Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor.(10)The wicked will see this and be infuriated. They will grind their teeth in anger; they will slink away, their hopes thwarted.
