What’s my heart condition?

“A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.  For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”  Luke 6:45.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Daniel 11-12, and Luke 6.

My words reveal my relationship to God.

I thought I was going along good until this morning when a torrent of impatient words flowed out of me.  Then I knew that I had loosened God’s control of my life.

A Godly life is not something you drift through.  Why?  There are too many currents to take the drifter places they should not be in.

My relationship to God must be ongoing.  It must be active.  I must be thinking about Him and seeking with all my energy to please Him.

When I start to drift, I shortly seek out what I want to do apart from God.  He gets outside my consultation realm and then I do things that displease Him.

I am thankful that I know that my words tell so much about me.  I often need that wake-up call to reorient myself in His direction.

“Lord, I always want Your Words to be my words.  Forgive for choosing my own words.  They always lead to distance from You.  I don’t want that to happen.  Have Your Way with me, I beg, this day. Give me a Godly heart that overflows with Your Words.”

Listen to your words and you will learn of your heart condition.
