I was walking and praying. As these words came out of my mouth I stopped to think about them. ‘Lord, help me to please You even in the attitude of my heart.’ I am sure it came from a verse that I messaged to a friend just before my walk.
Though this is written to married women, the words apply to each one of us. 1 Peter 3:4 Amplified says, “…hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which (is not anxious or wrought up, but) is very precious in the sight of God.”
We can play-act before others, but our heart attitude is always open before the Lord. Ask yourself this question: does my heart attitude please the Lord in every aspect of my life? David had a prayer that we can pray.
Psalm 139:23-24 says, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
