Reluctant beggars

“Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart,” (Psalm 119:2, ESV)

The Lord says He blesses those who seek him with their whole heart.

We respond, “What can I get for half?”

Like reluctant beggars, we hold out one hand to the Lord, doubting that even this small request will be answered.

But the Lord is inclined to bless us with more than half a blessing.

Be sure of this, there is no “half salvation.” Have no fear for the eternity that Christ has secured for you.

But don’t our doubting hearts rob us of His blessings in this life? Don’t we still reserve our divided heart for fleeting things and then mourn their fleeting satisfaction? Don’t we lack the peace and conviction of the faith because we glance wistfully over our shoulders?

His whole blessing lies before you. Stretch out your hands and see.
