Committed and Compelled
by PamFord Davis

Some unknowingly place their pastor high upon a pedestal. As shepherds, they don't ask for that view overlooking their sheep. Instead, they covet our prayers. Scripture gives a revealing look into the committed and compelled hearts of pastors through a Psalm by King David.

"I delight to do Your will, O my God; yes, Your law is within my heart. I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great assembly [tidings of uprightness and right standing with God]. Behold, I have not restrained my lips, as You know, O Lord. I have not concealed Your righteousness within my heart; I have proclaimed Your faithfulness and Your salvation. I have not hid away Your steadfast love and Your truth from the great assembly (Psalm 40:8-10 Amplified Bible)."
