What is David’s secret for living in personal revival? Let us study three responsive acts in this Psalm that gave David his spiritual joy and overflow.
Verse 6: “Think of the Lord.” At all times, may I consciously turn my attention toward the Lord. Psalm 46:10 commands us to “be still and know that I am God.” Quiet your hearts and your minds in His Presence many times throughout the day.
Verse 7: “Sing to the Lord.” God is my Help and my Salvation, may my life song sing to Him. Joyfully in the rain and in the sunshine, I will choose to sing words of gratitude for His unending love, for His gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ, for His personal concern for my life.
Verse 8: “Cling to the Lord.” I acknowledge my utter dependency upon Him. As Jesus says in John 15:5b, “apart from Me, you can do nothing.” Yes, He alone is my Stability, my Refuge and my Strength. God is my ever constant Companion in times of trouble and in seasons of peace.
Pray that we, as children of God, would quiet our hearts and live in the Truth that it is “in Him that we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28). As we allow ourselves to soak in His love, we can then in turn pour His love into the lives of others. Loving well is the goal of our Christian walk – loving Him, loving ourselves, and loving others well. Revival of the heart begins in the secret place of personal adoration and worship.
