Day 30: Affairs of the Heart

Audio: Malik Ewan

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 10  I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. 

It will ride with you

It will die with you

It’s your best friend

And your worst enemy –

The heart

How can you believe with all of it

When it is full of deceit?

Why does your praise cease

When it gets down with defeat?

Only one thing is sure –

God’s word is truth

So trust God’s word

More than the heart within you

When it comes to sexual purity, our human hearts cannot be trusted. Our heart finds every way of convincing us that it is okay to sin, that we will get back up after this one time, and that we will never do it again. So devious can the thoughts of our hearts be, for Jesus warns that from the heart proceeds adulteries, lasciviousness, fornications, and all sorts of evils.

So singles please think twice the next time you feel so in love that you want to say, “You have my heart.” If the Holy Spirit is not both resident and ruling there, then that heart is a trap to everyone involved.

Instead, God’s word is truth, and it is His word that must try our hearts until it becomes like His. Then we can safely offer our hearts to that special one. Is your heart under God’s control today?

Let’s pray…
