Verse of the Day: V9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Many people have heart troubles because of our stressful lifestyle as we worry much and fail to eat healthy food and fail to exercise regularly. Some developed serious heart diseases and suffered heart attacks and died. However, there is one heart trouble which is far worse than medical heart trouble; it is spiritual heart trouble.
1. Don’t Trust Man
V5 “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.”
What is spiritual heart trouble? Spiritual heart trouble is that without God, we are cursed by God.
How do we seek the cure for our spiritual heart trouble? We must seek the cure from God as only He can truly heal our spiritual heart disease.
V7 “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.”
2. Don’t Trust Heart
V9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Many think that we are not as evil and wicked as those who kill or rob others. Yet deep in our heart we know we need God to be our Great Surgeon to do a heart transplant for us to replace our deceitful and wicked heart with a pure and holy heart.
3. Only Trust God
V10 “I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”
Let us confess our wickedness and believe in our heart that Jesus is our Lord and receive Him into our heart that we shall have a new heart from Him to live a new life for Him!
Ezekiel 18:31 “Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?”
Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
Prayer of the Week
Dearest God, please help me to believe in You and give me a new heart to love You with all my heart.
