“I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.”
How long has it been since we took the time to ponder our behavior? As we begin to think on our ways, we must first examine our hearts. The condition of our hearts is shown forth by our thoughts, words, and actions.
“But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:”
A clean heart is a simple and sincere prayer away. If we will confess our sins, the Lord is Faithful and Just to just to forgive us, but to cleanse our hearts to be more like Him. If we desire to live pure, we must keep our hearts pure.
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
As our hearts become clean, we will desire to change how we think, what we say, and where we go. Our surroundings have the greatest affect on our thoughts and actions. Where we allow our feet to take us will determine what we will become. Where will your feet take you today?
“Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.”
After the Psalmist thought about the ways of his heart, he turned his feet toward the Word of God.
“The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD. All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits. Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.”
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must turn our feet toward the Word.
