“Teach me Thy way, O LORD; I will walk in Thy truth: unite my heart to fear Thy name.”  Psalms 86:11

We have to be willing to obey if we really want to know the true inner meaning of the teachings of Christ and the apostles. I believe this view prevailed in every revival that ever came to the Church during her long history. For sure, a revived Church may be distinguished from a dead one by the attitude of its members toward the truth.

Dead churches hold to the shell of truth without surrendering the will to it, while the church that wills to do God’s will is immediately blessed with a visitation of spiritual power. Theological facts are like the altar of Elijah on Carmel before the fire came, it was correct, properly laid out, but completely cold. When the heart makes the ultimate surrender, the fire falls and true facts are changed into spiritual truth that transforms, enlightens and sanctifies. The church or the individual that’s Bible taught without being taught by the Holy Spirit (and there are many of ‘em) has simply failed to see that truth lies deeper than the theological statement of it.

Lord give us undivided hearts, that we may surrender. God does teach us His way. Are we walking in His truth? Unless we do, our heart is divided and our faith reduced to intellectual affirmations without full heart commitment. Show us, Lord, those areas of Your truth to which we have not yet surrendered. We want to walk in Your truth with an undivided heart.
