Fixed on God!
"My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise." Psalm 57: 7.
To have our hearts fixed on God is to be anchored to him and his word. To have our hearts fixed on God, is to be pre-occupied with the Lord Jesus Christ, and the things of God, so that the evil things of this world can not influence us. To have our minds stayed upon him, and to be continually contemplating his righteousness and glory is the acceptable sacrifice to God
When we have our minds fixed upon the Lord Jesus Christ, and are absorbing his glory, it will cause us to be energized with his omnipotent power, and we will be the reflectors of his glory, and we will be compelled by the bursting forth within us of the streams of living water, to sing and give praise.
A person cannot walk upon hot coals without his feet being burned, neither can he get very close to an open fire without his clothes being scorched: likewise, no one can stand in the presence of a Holy and just God, and contemplate his magnificence without absorbing and reflecting the Glory of God, after having been purged and cleansed of that part of his nature which cannot stand in the presence of a righteous God.
When we are purged of the dross of sin by the blood of Christ and the consuming fire of God's glory, then we come forth a vessel, reflecting the glory of God. Our countenance will glow, our hearts will be purified, and we will be instruments of God's praise and glory. God will be exalted in us and through us.
Lets choose to fix our hearts on God continually.
