Living with an Enlarged Heart


Psalm 1:19, beginning at verse 28, says, “My soul melts for heaviness.Strengthen me according to your word, remove from me the way of lying and grant me your law graciously. I have chosen the way of truth. Your judgments I have laid before me. I cling to your testimonies. Oh Lord, do not put me to shame. I will run the course of your commandments, for you shall enlarge my heart.”


The Psalmist cries out to be delivered from the narrowness of his heart, which causes him to walk in a lesser victory than that which God has ordained for him. He calls it the way of law. He prays a prayer. He cries out from an honest heart and says, “God, give me a largeness of heart.”


In other words, he is saying, give me a state of mind that will move me towards the full plan that you have for my life.


Remember, my brother, my sister, it's time to pray.
