Established Hearts Part Two

Colossians 2:7 Amplified says, “Have the roots (of your being) firmly and deeply planted (in Him, fixed and founded in Him), being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving.”
We can draw insights from this verse on what will establish our heart. It is all about the depth of our relationship with the Lord. Fixed, founded in Him are words synonymous with abiding.
Intimacy with the Lord is a progressive deepening. You don’t arrive. It is a wondrous journey of Heart to heart communion, in a living expression of a love relationship that has no end.
Luke 4:4 Amplified says, “…Man shall not live and be sustained by (on) bread alone but by every word and expression of God.” It is living, breathing, touching, tasting, drinking in the very essence of His fragrant Presence.
Psalm 45:7-8 says, “…Your God has anointed You with the oil of gladness…All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia…”
David expressed his relationship with the Lord in Psalm 63. Verse 3-4 says, “Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.” Verse 5 Amplified says, “My whole being shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.”
Verse 8 Amplified says, “My whole being follow hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.” It is His heart reaching out to caress our heart through His words of love for us. Everything is from Him. He is the Initiator, and we are the responder.
Psalm 25:14 Amplified says, “The secret (of the sweet, satisfying companionship) of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its (deep, inner) meaning.”
