In Tune

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 2, Psalm 110 (day five)
The words of Robert Robinson are on my mind. “Tune my heart to sing Thy Grace”. Somewhere along the way, I remember reading that the Psalms help to “tune our hearts”. Anytime I play my guitar, I always tune it first thing. It’s frequently out of tune. Whether from change in climate (temperature/humidity), or being “handled” it will not function as designed until it is measured against something that has perfect pitch. The climate of a fallen world (temptation, stress, tragedy, fear, sin) can quickly cause our hearts to become out of tune (out of “step with the Holy Spirit”- Galatians 5:25). We regularly need to hear the “perfect pitch” of the Holy Spirit through scripture, sermons, stillness, study, and community. We need to constantly ask: “What do I need to know/learn/do?” In Psalm 2, the writer proclaims, “How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!” Sounds in tune to me.
