a heart like David's

"I will praise thee, O LORD, with my
whole heart; I will show forth all thy
marvelous works."

"The LORD also will be a refuge for the
oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
And they that know thy name will
put their trust in thee: for thou,
LORD, hast not forsake them
that seek thee"
(Psalm 9:1,9,10)

I love how King David got right to the heart of the matter. He always got straight to the point and always went deep into the precious heart of God. He was surely anointed of our God. And because of His open and sincere heart, God spoke power through the heart and lips of David. 

The Lord is our refuge and when we earnestly seek Him in prayer, He will not forsake us. He will not abandon us. He will hear our cries and attend to us. 

If we are to go higher with God, we have to make sure that our hearts are open and receptive to His Word and calling. We have to make sure when we petition Him, our hearts are bare and truthful and sincere.  When we come before Him in all humility and are truly seeking His perfect will for our lives, He is more than able and willing to fill us with His mighty Spirit.  We need to come before Him like King David did. Humble, repentant and with a servants heart. Eagerly seeking and ready for God to do a mighty work. When we pour out to God, He will pour out to us.

I really liked the last line, when we pour out to God, He will pour out to us! Amen!
