“My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.” Psalms 57:7Text — Psalm 57:7-11
David was a king sitting on the throne of his glory, yet he was aware that there is a greater King with a greater glory than him, Who deserves his praise. David’s heart was fixed, that is, firmly set to sing and give praise to the almighty God. He did this no matter the condition he was; in time of trouble, reproach or in peace, that was his choice. He knew that praise was the only thing he could give to the great God Who delivered him from all harms and set him on the throne of the greatest nation on earth.
Sadly, there are people who have their hearts fixed on doing evil not in obeying and praising God. The people of the world sing, but not to praise God, only to promote self and immoral behaviour. You have a great lesson to learn from David: that no matter how important you may feel you are, you must humble yourself before God, fear Him, love Him and praise Him in songs and with a holy life. Your heart should be fixed to do what is right and proper. A heart that is fixed to praise God is a thankful heart that appreciates the goodness of a loving Father. Form the habit of praising God from a pure heart.
