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