The heart is more deceitful than anything else, and incurable — who can understand it? I, Yahweh, examine the mind, I test the heart to give to each according to his way, according to what his actions deserve. Jeremiah 17:9-10 HCSB
We cannot trust our hearts, for our hearts go the way of our feelings, and our feelings can cloud our hearing of the Lord’s voice and lead us into sin.
Through the knowledge and application of the Scriptures coupled with the guidance from the Holy Spirit, our mind will keep our heart in check; and when we keep our heart in check, we are in tune with God’s will. For as the Scriptures say, God knows the truth in us and will judge accordingly.
Oh Heavenly Father, guide us in Your will; show us Your path and light our way and keep us steadfast to the narrow path. Amen.
