The Heart given to God

Give yourself to the Lord; trust in him, and he will help you [Psalm 37:5 GNT]

In this psalm David tells us what it means to have a heart given to God. Consider these verses.

Trust in the Lord and do good [v3]
The essence of a trusting heart is a strong desire to do good
Seek your happiness in the Lord [v4]
We are most happy when we serve the Lord and the ones that he loves.
Trust in him, and he will help you [v5]
A heart that is surrendered is a heart that trusts God when we are not in control.
Be patient and wait for the Lord to act [v7]
A patient heart releases control and waits for God to act.
Don't give in to worry or anger [v8]
Worry and anger are reminders of our need to release control and give ourselves to God.
The humble will possess the land. [v11]
A heart given to God is humble. It bows to God at every turn.
Our prayer and our desire Lord is to daily give ourselves to you and to your purposes.

... this devotion is part of a series about King David.
