The Psalms – Where To Plant Your Heart (via John Piper)

1 Comment

Tomorrow, on the first Sunday of 2018, one of our songs will be a setting of Psalm 1.
John Piper on God’s shaping the hearts of his people through his provision of the Psalms.

Plant Your Heart Here
In great mercy and wisdom, God has chosen to give us the Psalms. He has put them at the very center of his inspired word. Surely this is no accident. The heart is the center of our emotional life. And God’s heart-book is at the center of his word. How easy it is to find!
This is an invitation. God wants our hearts. He will take them as he finds them. And then, with the healing balm of the Psalms, he will shape them. Accept his invitation to come. On the front door, he has promised, Enter here. Find your delight in lingering here in meditation.
You will be “like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers” (Psalm 1:3).
