Proverbs 23: 5a “Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not?”
[Tweet “Proverbs 23: 5a Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not?”]
This verse is talking about riches, but as I read it several days ago I sensed the Lord asking me to look for the things in my life that I was setting my eyes upon that were not his choice for me.
I really didn’t want to do this search so I avoided it until this morning, when once again I was drawn to this Proverb only to feel the Lord’s gentle prodding again. When I yielded my heart to His, he gently revealed to me several areas where I was indeed setting my eyes on things that I knew were not his desire for me.
Isn’t God good? I find my heart wanders more than I ever imagined it would.
[Tweet “I find my heart wanders more than I ever imagined it would.”]
The second verse of “Come Thou Font of Every Blessing” says this:
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
You can hear the entire hymn here: Come Thou Font Of Every Blessing
I’m going to make this hymn my prayer for the day.
