It all began when I surrendered my heart to God (Proverbs 23:6). My heart stopped trusting in itself and began to trust in God (Proverbs 3:5) thus plucking out fear and troubles (John 14:27) since it was now being guarded by the peace of God (Philippians 4:7). Like a magnet, my heart began to derive its strength from God and not flesh (Psalms 73:26) through tests and exams set by the Lord (Psalms 26:2). This process involved breaking it, with the intention of drawing it closer to God (Psalms 34:18).
The final result is a pure heart (Psalms 51:10); a blessed heart (Matthew 5:8); a heart not trusting in an idol or swearing by a false god (Psalms 24:4); a heart whose meditation pleases God (Psalms 19:14) by having all its desires in line with God’s delight (Psalms 37:4) through following after the treasures of heaven (Matthew 6:21) and is forever wholly giving thanks unto the Lord and telling of His wonderful deeds (Psalms 9:1).
Action Plan: Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life. (Proverbs 4:23)
Prayer: Father, our hearts intentionally choose to trust wholly in You. We surrender all our heart’s desires, plans, thoughts and everything within us to Your Lordship, that you may guide us, guard us, strengthen us, break us. Lead our desires to be in line with Your delight that we may follow after heavenly treasures, daily meditating on Your Word. May our hearts respond to You as metal is to magnet. We therefore pluck our hearts from our own control as the magnetic effect takes place. Ours is to thank You for all that You have already done as we tell of Your wonderful deeds to the ends of the earth. Lots of love coming from our hearts to You in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
