THE HUMAN HEART

BEWARE & BE-AWARE-
Today remember with me one POWERFUL TRUTH as we navigate a year of VICTORY;
“WE ARE NOT CALLED TO FOLLOW OUR HEARTS!”
“REAL TALK WITH PK!”

“The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? But I, the Lord , search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.”
Jeremiah 17:9‭-‬10 NLT

Jesus himself said;
“But the words you speak come from the heart—that’s what defiles you. For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander.”
Matthew 15:18‭-‬19 NLT

He also said; Luke 12:34 “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
SO THIS IS WHY WE MUST “LOVE THE LORD OUR GOD WITH ALL OF OUR HEART , soul, mind and strength!!”

WE HAVE been called to follow JESUS NOT OUR HEART! One major reason many are walking away from ministry, family and Gods perfect will in record numbers is because they have believed a lie. “Follow your heart!”

NO!!! We don’t follow our hearts WHILE OBEDIENTLY living the “CALLED” LIFE! WE obey Gods Word and follow HIS DECREES.

“For God saved us AND CALLED US to live a holy life. HE DID THIS, not because we deserved it, but because that was HIS plan from before the beginning of time—to show us HIS grace through Christ Jesus. And now HE has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He BROKE THE POWER OF death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News. And God CHOSE ME TO BE A PREACHER, an apostle, and a teacher of this Good News.”
2 Timothy 1:9‭-‬11 NLT

WHEN we want to give up or walk away from who, where and what GODS plan is—- often God will remind us OF WHO CHOSE WHO!!!

We do not choose our ministry, the church we attend, what gift of the Holy Spirit that will be imparted to us. GOD DOES.
Pride in our heart will deceive us into believing we have that power or “RIGHT!”
But the truth is by faith we have forfeited our rights for the sake of “Taking up our cross to follow JESUS!”

Thank you ABBA for choosing us!

Love ya.
