Here I am

Then I said,“Here I am, I have come- it is written about me in the scroll,  I desire to do your will, O my God;  your law is within my heart.”

Psalm 40:7-8

What if we woke up each morning with prayer on our heart, how different our days would be.  Here I am – that is so strong, it is standing before God saying Here I am. I have come– it’s like telling God you are showing up for work. It is written about me in the scroll – I love this because it is true and reminds us how valuable we are to God. Over and over again in the bible God tells us about the book of life and our name being written in it. I desire to do your will, O my God – it is ultimately what I desire but how often do I do it or even to stay quite long enough to hear it?  Your law is within my heart- This is awesome “Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You” (Psalm 119:11)

With all this truth in this one little prayer how can we not hang it on our mirror, put it in our car, or glue it to the refrigerator to remind us of the only thing that matters – doing the will of God!

Hope you have a great weekend!
