Upright In Heart

“The Lord opens the eyes of the blind, the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the uncompromisingly righteous, those upright in heart and in right standing with Him.” Psam 146:8

God is love, He is a loving Father.  He opens the eyes of the blind. This doesn’t mean just those who are physically blind, but I believe His bigger concern is for those who are spiritually blind.  Those who only see this world and think that’s all there is.  

Those who bow before Him He will lift up.  He loves the uncompromising, those who love to do what He says is right and will not waver from it. 

Those who are upright in heart, what does that mean?  To be upright is to be vertical, pointed in His direction.  To not be upright is to be horizontal, lying even with the ground.  We should always be seeking to rise up to Him in our hearts, it pulls us further away from that which would hold us down.
