Psalm 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
What and where our heart is set is connected to our strength. Wherever and whatever our hearts are set on determine the source of our strength. For followers of Jesus, their hearts are set on a continuing life in determined pursuit of the presence of the Lord.
Why “pilgrimage”? Because this present world is passing away and is not eternal.
For the saint of God, the ultimate destiny is the manifest presence in heaven; the eternal presence, reign and rule of Almighty God. Where my heart is set defines my passions and desires!
May our hearts always be set on Him!
