A PURE HEART – HOW CAN WE HAVE IT?

The Resolve to Follow the Lord

I really like this verse above. Here, nothing was going to stop Elisha from following Elijah no matter where that leds him! And so the two of them walked on! I hope we are the same with our Lord. I hope that attitude to ‘go on’ will be found within us no matter how difficult the road will be! I hope our Lord has a rightful place in our lives and that we are pressing on wherever He leads us.

At certain times, certain people have characterized this courage and determination to follow the narrow path no matter what. It is the attitude of Ruth who would not leave Naomi even though it meant forsaking all that she knew in her old life. (Ruth 1:16) It is shown in the attitude of good old Ittai when King David said to Ittai the Gittite, “Why should you come along with us? Go back and stay with King Absalom. You are a foreigner, an exile from your homeland. You came only yesterday. And today shall I make you wander about with us, when I do not know where I am going? Go back, and take your countrymen. May kindness and faithfulness be with you.” But Ittai replied to the king, “As surely as the LORD lives, and as my lord the king lives, wherever my lord the king may be, whether it means life or death, there will your servant be.”

May we be the same!
