Your Heart

The heart is the center of who we are. It is from the heart that we believe and are saved. With the heart, we either live in fear or live in faith. With the heart, we choose to walk in the Spirit or in the flesh. 


The heart can either be hardened to the Lord, or it can be transformed by the love of God. We must guard our hearts from the world’s influence. We must protect our hearts from our fluctuating feelings and emotions. By faith, we must plant God’s Word in our hearts and guard it from the lies of the enemy and deceit of this world. Only the child of God whose heart remains sensitive to the Lord will hear Him and walk in faith. 


“Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life”

(Proverbs 4:23). A sensitive heart to the Lord must be guarded and protected or it will become hardened again. 


How can you know that your heart is sensitive to the Lord and you are hearing Him? 


Your heart will know joy when you are in God’s Word.

*The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart (Psalm 19:8).


Your heart will hunger to seek and know Him.

*When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek” (Psalm 27:8).


Your heart will trust Him and praise Him.

*The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise Him (Psalm 28:7).


Your life will reproduce the health of your heart.

*A sound heart is life to the body (Proverbs 14:30).


You will be growing in the knowledge of God.

*Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God (Matthew 5:8).


You are no longer enamored with the temporary things of this world. 

*For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:21).


Your words, your attitude, and your actions will be good and speak life.

*A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things” (Matthew 12:35).


Without keeping your heart sensitive to the Lord, you will not hear Him. Your heart will know fear and not rest in His perfect love. Without hearing Him, faith will not come. 


Your future is in your heart. Will your heart reveal the blessings of the Lord, or will it reveal the deceitfulness of this world?


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


Your heart reflects who you are.


Thank you, Barry Bennett.
