Heart Lover and Mender

I wonder if there is anyone out there who thinks deep? I do… I have always had an inquisitive nature. Quite often I ponder on the past, the present and the future. Both in a personal sense and a study of the lives and events of others. The mysteries of the lives of human beings are deeply interesting and I think we’re all intrigued by them. And who knows the answers to our questions better than our creator God?     

My search began with a  desperate need to understand some things about myself and my own life. And that search is ongoing. But I also like to look deep into human nature in general.  I find so much inspiration and truths I never knew in the bible. It really has given me a deep desire to become a brand new person. Father God’s promise is that “Whosoever will” come can nd seek to be set free from our old nature.  We drink deeply of his living waters. The truths of His word rule over all of life.

I found many truths of how the law of truth operates in lives. That law tells us all that what a man sows, he shall reap. I learned that applies to both the positive and the negative.  Personally, I found that the person I was raised up to be mostly knew how to sow seed that would bring in a harvest I didn’t want or need. I needed badly to learn a lot of new truth through Christ  I was an emotional mess trying the best I knew how. But I didn’t know much. Thankfully, I was finally successful in locating the source of my life problem. My heart needed healing and changing..

I found that the condition of the heart of men is a constantly recurring theme in the pages of scripture. Scripture reveals that the heart is the center of all of our lives.  Into the heart go the impressions of life as we see it from everything we experience in life. And from the heart proceeds all that’s been deposited. All life attitudes and perceptions issue from the heart.

We know that hearts suffer in many ways. From the normal pains of life, loss and death, distress and grief in relationships and other afflictions. Hearts can be broken, they can get weary and they can get troubled.  We’re also told that the heart is deceitful above all things. We’re taught that men will come and tell lies to deceive and trouble our hearts.. And that we will tell lies and deceive ourselves, and others.  Hearts will hurt those they love and will also suffer hurt in relationships with others. And, as we study deeper and deeper we learn that the people of a man’s own house can act as an enemy. And also that a man can be his own worst enemy…

All this makes us to wonder. Are there no good and pure hearts? I’d answer that by saying that I believe there are some who are taught better than others. Some have learned a measure of mercy and forgiveness of offenses that others were never taught. And it’s also a sad but true fact that some truly enjoy strife and discord.

The bottom line truth is that hearts independent of God are powerless to prevent the hurts of life and the damage they can cause. Father God, the Father of all spirits, tells us plainly that pure hearts cannot be found in the natural man. As a scriptural backup, even in His powerful life, even Jesus Christ trusted no man fully. His heart was anchored in the total trust of His Father who holds the heart of every man in His hand.,

John 2:25

And he (Jesus)) needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

As I have thought on these things I was led to this beautiful and true song by Larry Gatlin. I’m convinced the song came from the heart of God.

The bottom line truth is that all hearts need a savior, a healer and faithful governor. They need the pure love of the Beloved Lord Jesus Christ. They need the self control and loving skills that come from the Comforter and Counselor, the Holy Spirit, to manage their lives and relationships.

And the good news is that as Christ dwells in hearts that are open to Him. Through his love and mercies we learn right relationships with others. Jesus acts as our mediator and Jesus knows the heart of every man. He tells us in His word…”Don’t let your hearts be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me” .  Jesus is peace and joy. He is the lover of our souls and the healer of our hearts. He is the only power who is able to destroy the destructive power of spiritual wickedness which tempts and torments man. He is the burden bearer and the yoke destroyer. He says “If you are weary, take my yoke and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly. Come to me and you will find rest for your souls”.  He brings us into fellowship with Him and gradually, over time, with patience, He peels away the old lifestyle habits and heart sicknesses we have acquired over years of independence of God the Father. He is love for the unloved and the unlovely and He is hope for the hopeless. He is able to make us brand new, filled with an abiding faith. a love for truth and for our fellow man. He is the Master heart surgeon. I pause and give thanks to our Father right now for that great good news!
Blessings form heaven rain down on hearts and lives as we surrender all to the Father’s love and His plans for our lives. And through a faithful prayer life we are able to maintain the sweet fellowship we’ve found in Him. We learn a  humble heart attitude through a constant awareness of our need of Him and our lost condition without Him.

Matthew 5:3

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Psalm 51:6
Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

1 Peter 3:4
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
