God is looking at Your Heart. Is it Pure? Is it bitter? Is it Righteous? Is it Corrupt?

Hello Readers & Followers,

Do you know that God can see the state of your heart? He can see what nobody else can see. He knows your thoughts even before your actions. We sometimes think that we know people based on their actions. Permit me to say that sometimes the actions do not match what an individual is thinking in their mind. The Word of God says in 1 Samuel 16:7 that, God does not look at the outward appearances like the way we humans do but He looks at the heart (Paraphrased).  God's Word also says that "A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart (Proverbs 21:2 NIV version). 

Our heart is so important that God said that we need to guard our hearts diligently because our thoughts control our lives (Proverbs 4:23). God also said that we need to take captive of every thought to make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:4-5). 

As Christians, God uses our everyday living to show us the state of our hearts. Sometimes, God uses our relationship with people, families, colleagues, church members, our children, Christian music, Word of God, a sermon, an article, a painting, and many more to show us the state of our hearts.

Do you know the state of your heart?

Please, say this prayer after me:

"Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting."
                                                            (Psalm 139:23-24 NIV version).

The above Psalm 139:23-24 can be used to pray to God regularly.

The charge for this week is for you to ask God to search your heart. Are you going to subject your thoughts to the obedience of God's Word?

Have a lovely week!

See you next week Monday.
