The Heart's Desire

The Heart's Desire.

In ancient times, the heart was thought to be the "command post" of a person's life.  While God's people were in Egypt, Pharaoh's heart was described as "hard".  His hard heart was filled with his own wants and pride.  The heart can be full of corruption, like lying, boasting, cheating and hating.  Fears in our heart can ruin us, for 'fear' likes to take a seat in the heart.  The human mind often justifies what the heart wants.
Our Lord gives strong attention to the heart.  In 1 Samuel 16:7 it reads, "But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him.  The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.  Man looks at the outward appearance, "but the Lord looks at the heart".  So, what is going on in your heart, as the Lord looks at it?
Other Scriptures to read about the heart are:  Jeremiah 17:10, Matthew 6:25-34 and Psalm 28:7.
How do we fix the heart's desire?  Can a heart remain neutral?  The more we embrace good desires in our heart, the more the bad desires decrease in frequency.  Ask the Lord to teach your heart to always do the honorable thing, which glorifies Him.
  TRY welcoming each new day with a new heart, a pure heart and a heart with godly feelings and intentions.  Have a committed heart to serve and love Jesus.  The Holy Spirit can help your heart to do exceptional things you never thought possible.

Loving God our Father!

When you turn to the Lord Jesus you delight his heart!   You know the feeling when someone rushes forward to greet you with a smile and hug.  You feel so loved and acknowledged!   Perhaps that's how God feels when we call on his name in worship and prayer, acknowledging him as our heavenly Father and honoring him above all else.
