Law in the Heart
"The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide" (Psalm 37:31).
Put the law into the heart, and the whole man is right. This is where the law should be, for in the head it puzzles, on the back it burdens, in the heart it upholds.
God with us in covenant makes us eager to obey His will and walk in His commands.
We are here guaranteed that obedient-hearted man shall be sustained, he will do that which is right, and he shall therefore do that which is wise. Holy action is always the most prudent, though it may not at the time seem to be so.
The Word of God has never misled a single soul yet; its plain directions to walk humbly, justly, lovingly, and in the fear of the LORD are as much words of wisdom to make our way prosperous as rules of holiness to keep our garments clean. He walks surely who walks righteously.
(Charles Haddon Spurgeon)
