Daily Devotional: October 21, 2023 – Psalm 40:8

I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart. – Psalm 40:8

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Today, we are meditating on the beautiful words from Psalm 40:8, “I desire to do Your will, O my God; Your law is within my heart.”

Isn’t it a beautiful thought? To always crave for God’s will and keep His words at the very center of our hearts!

Let’s picture the heart as a comfortable home. Your heart is that home. And within that home, God’s laws should live. They should be the guests that are always welcome, making your heart full, warm, and comforting.

But sometimes, life gets busy. We sometimes forget to invite God’s word into our hearts, don’t we? We can get so caught up with the noise of our daily lives that we neglect the most important guest of all. But when we calmly and sincerely look inside us, we choose to invite God’s will back into our hearts; we feel peace that’s beyond explaining.

In every step we take, no matter how big or small, let’s remember to carry God’s words with us. Because there’s no better guide than God’s will. When we learn and desire to act according to His will, we become better versions of ourselves. And isn’t that a journey worth taking?

My Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, teach us to keep Your words not just in our minds, but deep within our hearts. Remind us when we lose our way amidst life’s hustle. Help us desire to follow Your will above all else. Grant us the strength and wisdom to walk the path You’ve laid before us, even when it’s hard.

May we feel Your loving presence each day, guiding our hearts closer to You. Thank you, Lord, for being with us on this amazing journey. Amen.
