Dearly beloved brethren, there is a world of difference between a heaven bond Christian and an empty professor of religion.

The heaven bond Christian is always mindful of the eternal gains awaiting him or her in heaven. So whenever such people are confronted with any challenges, they resolved to endure the difficulties, for them not to forfeit, their eternal inheritances.

1 Peter 1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

We are grateful to God for the exemplary lifestyle of our Lord Jesus Christ. He was confronted with divers challenges, during His earthly ministry, but His mindset was on the eternal inheritances awaiting Him.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

This also have been the attitude of Bible believing believers in Bible days and this same should be your own attitude too.

Romans 8:16 -18 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
I have inclined mine heart [ I am determined to keep your decrees ] to perform thy statutes always, even unto the end. – Psalms 119:112

So such believers have counted the cost and they have resolved to follow the Lord through thick and thin, without looking back. Receive grace to do so in Jesus name.

See the following scriptures which are personal resolutions of such Bible believing believers.

1. Counted the cost

Luke 14:25- 33 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? 14:29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, 14:30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. 14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? 14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace. 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

2. No looking back.

Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

3. Endure the difficulties to the end.

Acts 14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

4. Cleave to God through thick and thin to follow Him to the end.

Acts 11:23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.
Revelation 14:4-5 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. 14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
John 6:66-68 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 6:69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
Romans 8:35-38 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I have inclined mine heart [ I am determined to keep your decrees ] to perform thy statutes always, even unto the end. – Psalms 119:112

These biblical stances were the resolve of king David at this point.

He was willing to be obedient to God’s words at whatever cost, to the end of his life. See it yourself.

I have inclined mine heart [ I am determined to keep your decrees ] to perform thy statutes always, even unto the end. – Psalms 119:112

See this same passage in other Bible versions.

NLT
Psalms 119:112 I am determined to keep your decrees to the very end.

AMP BIBLE
Psalm 119:112 I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes forever, even to the end.

See this same passage amplified.

King David, here in a most affectionate manner, like an Israelite indeed, resolves to stick to the word of God and to live and die by it. With constancy and perseverance. He would perform God’s statutes always, in all instances, in the duty of every day, in a constant course of holy walking, and this to the end, without weariness. This is following the Lord fully.

I have inclined mine heart [ I am determined to keep your decrees ] to perform thy statutes always, even unto the end. – Psalms 119:112

Beloved, see how the following vscriptures affirmed his lifelong unchanging resolve to abide by the word of God through thick and thin.

Psalms 119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
Psalms 119:44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.

Dearly beloved, this must be your resolution too, like king David, that God’s unfailing unchanging and eternal words shall have finality and regulate your life till Christ comes.

Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

I have inclined mine heart [ I am determined to keep your decrees ] to perform thy statutes always, even unto the end. – Psalms 119:112
