Your heart at peace?

"A heart at peace gives life to the body." Proverbs 14:30

Is there a gap between what you know in your head and what you feel in your heart?

This missed connection can cause problems with one's actions and attitudes.

We live in a society today where external image is highly valued?

But what about the inner beauty of each one of us?

Do we highly value that?

What ultimately matters from God's prospective is what is going on on the inside of our hearts.

We so need to be concerned about our hearts, about what is going on the inside.

It really matters to God the heart of man.

Man is interested in external, but God is more interested in internals.

We tend to think the heart as the center of our emotions and feelings.

The Bible talks about the heart as the center of the will, mind and emotions.

The heart discerns with the mind, it desires with the emotions, and it decides with the will.

Because of our fallen nature our hearts are less than perfect.

We find ourselves confusing truth and error tainted by pride and a desire for what is inappropriate.

We may want something so desperately, that we go and do that very same thing, even though we know God has advised against it.

We are affected by sin, so at times we choose not to do, deep down what we know we ought to do.

We have a problem with the heart.

"Keep thy heart with all diligence out of it are the issues of life." Proverbs 4:23

God alone know the heart of each of us.

We have got to learn how to deny our own desires and find out God's desires for our life.

We must learn to die out to self will, take up the cross of Christ and follow after God.

We need not to shout it out to those around us.

One will know a man/woman after God's heart by the very life they live and what kinda fruit they bear.

Do you do the right thing cause you want God's name to be honored?

Is your heart right?

God is the only One we can depend upon.

In the midst of distress, we can live a life of trust and praise.

A heart that is firmly fixed in place, not subject to change, firm in belief, forever faithful.

"That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, the length, and depth and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth all knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17-19
