1 (A Song or Psalm of David.) O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

4 For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.

5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;

6 That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.

7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

8 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;

9 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.

10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?

11 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?

12 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.

13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

    This psalm starts off exactly how I am feeling... The psalmist says, "my heart is fixed". O LORD, whatever my troubles may be, no matter how much pain is in my life. Let me be focused, LET MY HEART ALWAYS BE FIXED ON YOU.
    May you always be my priority.

    I caught the fire of verse 12 this morning. God's help is enduring, no man can help you beyond his limit. Wonderful assurance and warning about where to seek help. Praise God.

    David says hit heart is fixed upon God. Yet David is well know for him many failures throughout the course of his life. Despite these failure God does commend him calling him a man after his own heart. Why? I believe here is one of the reason as David said here his heart is fixed. Despite his failure David had made the decision that God was going to be his stregth, God was going to be his focus, God was going to be the one he seeks to please, and when he falter or failed that firm grip on God brought him back battered and beaten to where he needed to be. Temptations will come, failures will happen, and yes even punishment for those failures. Yet if I will decide now, not tomorrow or the next day or the next but now that God be my source of joy, of happiness. That pleasing Him become my focus and I like David remain planted pushing past the errors and pitfalls. Then like David when the end of my life comes and I meet my maker despite failure I can receive a well done from my King.
