Undivided Heart

A narcissist is someone who is unable to commit to anything outside of himself. Consider the Christian narcissist who moves from one church to another always seeking that move of God, but never allowing God to change them. They are easily distracted because of commitment phobia. Making a commitment would require them to change. It would require self-examination.

They will miss church because they need alone time with God. Yet it is fellowship and involvement one with another that makes us whole for iron sharpens iron. Fear has them in the throes of self-protection.

Imagine the change if we served God with an undivided heart.

1 Chronicles 12 list men who committed to David before David was king. They recognized that God’s hand was upon him. They committed to him even when it was dangerous to do so. Verse 32a says, “ And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; ”

Do we truly understand the times we are in and what God is calling us to do? Or do we go with popular thinking and never take a stand for the Lord and His Word?

They were not men who were with Saul sometime of the time and then David. No they committed regardless of the cost.

17 And David went out to meet them, and answered and said unto them, If ye be come peaceably unto me to help me, mine heart shall be knit unto you: but if ye be come to betray me to mine enemies, seeing there is no wrong in mine hands, the God of our fathers look thereon, and rebuke it.18 Then the spirit came upon Amasai, who was chief of the captains, and he said, Thine are we, David, and on thy side, thou son of Jesse: peace, peace be unto thee, and peace be to thine helpers; for thy God helpeth thee. Then David received them, and made them captains of the band.

Are we that committed to the Lord. willing to serve with an undivided heart?
