“Incline my heart unto Thy Testimonies, and not to covetousness” (Psalm 119: 36).
You have been reading about Wesley the last couple of days. The youth pastor and Wesley so wanted the other two guys from school to come to know Christ. They rejected the gospel and told Wesley he was a fool. Out they went and Wesley was left alone with the youth pastor. “Wes, there is a lesson to be learned tonight. I hope that you will,” and with that they looked up and there was the youth leader, the uniformed police officer, coming to their table. “Can I join you? I’m on break so I have a few minutes,” the officer said. “I see the guys left pretty soon after I lit the emergency lights. If they weren’t ready for the gospel, at least they were warned about ‘covetousness’ which I spoke to you about last night, Wesley. By the way, I recognized both of those guys. This is not the first crime these guys have pulled off. Wesley, I want to urge you in the strongest way to ‘incline your heart to the Lord’s Testimonies,’ His Word. It will take you in the opposite direction those guys want to take you.” What a precious night with the youth leader police officer and the youth pastor. How about you? Which way is your heart inclined?
For today: Lord, please incline my heart after You and Your Word.
