It is no easy task to keep our minds fully on the things of God and the presence of God. Being so chased by our jobs, responsibilities, parenting and just living day to day; it is almost impossible to be caught up in God. David wrote in the Psalms, “Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name.”
The “undivided heart” is simply a heart that is in one piece instead of two or more. From this Psalm we learn that we ask the Lord to “teach us the way—so we may walk in truth,” so it is probably deducible that knowing God’s ways, the way of truth and not a lie, is the first step in walking with an undivided heart.
David’s Psalm continues, “I will give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever.” David moves from a divided heart, a fragmented mind, and non-concentration, to being fully focused. He moves to a “whole heart.” At least some part of each day we should try to move from a divided heart to being whole hearted.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.” Jesus
