Dear Church Family:
When we want to show someone we’re really listening, we give them our undivided attention. When we want to show others how much we love a team or brand, we wear the team colors and give our undivided loyalty. We seem to have no problem giving our attention to some things. But what about God? This Psalm of David, speaks a little truth we need to hear.
Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. (Psalm 86:11)
I love this prayer. It’s one that is asking for help to give God our undivided attention. David’s prayer is that he might have an undivided heart—one that is fully devoted and dedicated to God. It's a genuine connection that allows God to speak and teach. Imagine what would happen in your life if you gave God your undivided attention. What would God want to say? What would God want to do in your life?
Today, I challenge you to spend a moment asking God for this same undivided heart to help you grow in your relationship with Him. Then, ask yourself this question: What’s one thing I can do to when distractions come the next time I try to pray and connect with God?
