MESSAGE• “The word of God is alive and active, sharper than any double edge sword. It cuts all the way through to where soul and spirit meets, to where joint and marrows come together. It Judges the thoughts and desires of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 The word of God targets the heart. God is the only one I know who can do that. He can melt it even how strong and cold it can be. He knows every detail of our hearts and who and what are inside of it.
When we receive His word from a friend or from astranger, without knowing, it automatically targets theheart. And if your mind and heart is truly open to Hisword, the effect is indefinable. It gives chills and goosebumps sensing His presence. His words takes place inour hearts. And in some special cases, When you love thepeople around you (the one who shared the gospel toyou) and yourself, It is easy for God to rest in yourheart for God is love and you have it. (1 John 4:8)
• How does it pass through our hearts? Our heart is like a door. In Revelations 3:20, Jesus said, “Behold, I stand in the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and open it, I will come in… ” When we receive the gift of eternal life through the Lord Jesus Christ, we ask Him to reign in our hearts. So that we may be like Him. And He should reign in it always.
PROMISES What does God promise when we decided for Him to enter in our hearts?• Our desires will be given to us. “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give the desires of your hearts.” Psalms 37:4• If we seek Him, we will find Him. “But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and You will find Him if you search Him with all of your heart and all your soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29
• When we are brokenhearted, He is close to us. “The Lord is near to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalms 34:18• He will renew our hearts and minds. “Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a new heart of flesh. ” Ezekiel 36:26
COMMANDS• If we seek Him, many times it was said, If we seek Him with all our hearts, we will find Him. It is a command, the very necessity for God to rest in the most precious part of ourselves.• “Love the Lord with all your HEART, with all your MIND, with all your SOUL and with all your STRENGTH, love your neighbor as you love yourself.” Luke 10:27
WARNING• If we don’t seek Him through our very hearts, Even if we call unto Him, He will not know and never know us. “Not every one who calls unto me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but He who does the will of the Father who is in heaven will enter. And I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you: depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’ ” Matthew 7:21, 23It will bring more sins and wrongdoings in us if we allow Satan to manage our hearts again.
CONCLUSION• So, always check our hearts if God is inside. We will know the Lord in our hearts when we follow His commandments, submit to His will for us and love one another. If we have hatred, greed and all kinds of sins resting in our hearts, love of money and all that dishonors God, we don’t have His very HEART.• Always check our HEARTS.
Tips and advices• Every morning, ask God to consecrate our hearts in everything we will do throughout the day. –RJ Sabat• Everything should be done according to our hearts, but mind over hearts. Even in Love. But only God should reign in our hearts, before anything and anyone else. Our very hearts are the most precious thing we can offer to God. He looks at it in every way.
