What Does The Heart Say?

Guard your heart more than anything else, because the source of your life flows from it. Prov 4:23

Did you know that God can give you a new heart?

"But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days," declares the LORD, "I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Jeremiah 31:33

I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart. Jeremiah 24:7

I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me and that all will then go well for them and for their children after them. Jeremiah 32:39

If you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and have confessed Him as your Savior, He has given you a new heart. 

Your heart has been changed. This is important! Many people are not aware they no longer have a sinful heart, and they remain in bondage to the past and circumstances in their lives which set themselves up as strongholds against an abundant life. 

Imagine how tragic it would be for someone to be locked up in a filthy prison cell and all the while they had the key to unlock the door to walk right out into the fresh air, sunshine and freedom.  

This is how many Christians live, imprisoned in a cells of torments of all types.  They have bought a lie. They have a deceptive mindset telling them they are still unworthy sinners just getting through a few more weary days before flying away. 

Beloved, this is not what our Father has in mind for us ! When we become a son or daughter of  The Most High, He imparts His very own righteousness into us. He "tattoos", if you will, His Word upon our hearts. Instead of tablets of stone, His law is written on our very own hearts!

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebews 10:22

Because of what our High Priest, Jesus the Messiah, did for us, We can draw near to God with a FULL assurance of faith. He has baptized our hearts and changed our nature to His nature. We are NEW creations. The old us has died and the new us has been raised up into newness of life. 

Do we always act like God? No, but if we seek Him and listen to Him and live from a place of WHOLE-heartedness, will will begin to see our desires, thoughts and actions change. 

Take delight in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 34:7

Is your desire to know Jesus more, to have His kind of heart? 
It's there for the taking. 
These promises are your key to unlocking the door to an abundant life.
