Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of undivided.
Psalm 86v11 Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
The Holy Spirit answers this prayer for us. With the Holy Spirit we will live by the Spirit and He will teach us what we need to know and when we need to know it all we will have to do is ask. We know through the Holy Spirit to fear God is the first step to receiving wisdom and knowledge. (Proverbs 1v7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.) Foolish people despise anything but their wisdom and any discipline that they have to go through to give up their way of thinking and give up what they think they have. We are all foolish before we receive the love of God and His truth, this is the fear we need to possess so we can receive all that He wants to give us. His Spirit giving is without limit. The more of Him you desire to have because of the love you have for Him, you can ask and He will gladly give you what you ask. His will is for all of us to be sanctified or made in His image, so you can be used for His purpose. When we receive God's wisdom by faith we will receive His ways and His truth that we will continue to live by. We love Him above all else is why we want to please Him because of what He did for us on the cross, our guilt, shame and sin as been removed and we are free by His love! This freedom of love we receive is what compels us to seek more of His love. We have faith in Him giving us all we need in this life. That means all we need, meaning physical needs as well as spiritual needs. We who are fully assured through the Holy Spirit of truth are full of faith knowing each day He will reveal to us something we do not know about Him and therefore we will learn more about the power within us.(John 14v26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.) The Spirit of God continues to grow in us so we continue to walk in His truth with a undivided heart full of faith, hope and love. Our love for Him is undivided by our faith continuing in that love we have for each other, so the Spirit in our hearts is undivided. We remain in Him and He will remain in us this is the love we have for each other. This is the fear of God; knowing we do not ever want to leave Him or displease Him because we do not ever want to loose the love we have between us. (John 15v5 "I am the vine; you are the branches, If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.) So if we have an undivided heart we can do nothing, our hearts have to be fully devoted to the Lord before He can remain in us and us in Him. We can not live by the Holy Spirit and the cares of this world at the same time. To love Him means to give up ourselves for Him and it also means to give up ourselves for others, this is His way. ( John 15v12 My command is this:Love each other as I have loved you)I love everyone with the love God gives me for you! (Read Psalm 86 and John 15.)
