What Is On Your Heart?

Hebrews 8:10 - “… I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts…” 

Many of us have been taught that we cannot trust our hearts. We quote verses like “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked…” (Jeremiah 17:9), not knowing that Jeremiah was referring 2 the man who had not received Jesus as his Lord and Savior.

I have had people come 2 me and say, " I don’t know what I should do with my life.”
“What is on your heart?” I asked one of them.

“I would love 2 work among children.”

“Then work among children!”

“But I am waiting on the Lord 2 tell me 2 do that.”

“Well, He has given u the desire, so go and work among children!”

“But the desire comes from my heart. How do I know if it is of God?”

My friend, once u are saved, u have a brand new heart (Ezekiel 36:26), and u can trust the promptings of your heart bcoz God dwells in u and He leads u from within. And don’t worry bcoz His promptings will never contradict His Word. It will lead u 2 good success.

Often, u find that when u follow your inner promptings, it is actually God who has put those desires in your mind and written them on your heart. I remember years ago when I approached one of our church leaders and told him, “I really think that u are called 2b a full-time pastor.” It turned out 2b a confirmation of what he already knew on the inside. You see, God was already leading him from within. Today, he is one of our full-time pastors.

If u enjoy something and desire 2 do it, then go for it! Go with the flow. God Himself says that He will guide us from within. Let’s not doubt Him. And don’t worry about the outcome. Your part is just 2 follow the flow. God’s part is 2 work in u both the willingness and the performance of it! (Philippians 2:13)

Beloved, bcoz God has given u a new heart, He will write His desires on it. And as u fulfill these desires, u will bring forth fruit, and not wither and die. Whatever u do will prosper!
