Is my heart reflecting what I want it to?

August 18, 2012 2 comments

God spends a lot of time talking about the heart. He longs for me to have His heart. That is what David had. That is what Jesus had. That is what I long for.

May I have His heart. May I show His love and compassion. May I know what He cares for and do it. May I be completely one with Him.

As water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man. Proverbs 27:19

We are on a great journey. We need a map. We need direction on how to reach our destination.

How many times do we set out for the day without checking on how to get to where God wants us to go? God’s word gives us the clear directions. He has laid it all out for us. We have to be careful. We want get there just by winging it. The destination is clear. The directions are clear. We have been given the map. It is God’s word.

“How can a young person live a clean life? By carefully reading the map of your Word.” ~~King David (Psalm 119:9 The Message)

“Good character is the best insurance; crooks get trapped in their sinful lust.” ~~King Solomon

Good character is important. Doing the right thing, God’s thing, makes all the difference. Solomon’s dad understood that following what God said is important. Solomon learned that from his Dad.

Looking for a reward in this world and the next? Get God’s good character. Get it now.

Good character is the best insurance; crooks get trapped in their sinful lust. ~~King Solomon (Proverbs 11:6)

“I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart.” ~~King David

It all starts at home. Work is important and so is the church, but living love out at home is where it all starts and ends. It can’t be faked at home. Either I do things out of love with a blameless heart or I don’t. Everyone at home knows.

And so I seek to do every act at home out of pure love. No selfishness. No boasting. No ego gratification. Only love.


I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart. Psalm 101:2

“My arms wave like banners of praise to you.” ~~King David

I must find the place of worship. I must open my eyes. In His generous love, I can really live. It is about His strength. It is about His glory. I must praise Him in an excessive way. I must go overboard in my thanks.

So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
drinking in your strength and glory.
In your generous love I am really living at last!
My lips brim praises like fountains.
I bless you every time I take a breath;
My arms wave like banners of praise to you.
Psalm 63

We can rest, fearless before the enemy

In God, we have rest. Even though we know we are at war, we rest, confident that God will see us through. Perfect love brings us peace. The is no fear in His world. He is in charge and we can rest.

What a gift from our Father. His goal for us will be achieved. Our enemy can’t touch us when we trust in Him.

So … I go to bed confident. I wake up rested and strong. I wake up fearless.

“I stretch myself out. I sleep. Then I’m up again—rested, tall and steady, fearless before the enemy mobs coming at me from all sides.” ~~King David (Psalm 3:5-6)
