The heart is priceless, it is our prized possession. That’s why we can’t give it to the wrong people because they will destroy it, because they don’t know the true value of it, and if they don’t know the true value of it how can they take care of it. Most people don’t realize that the heart is the most essential part of the body. If you think I have no idea or clue as to what I am saying, then allow the heart to stop beating and you will see that nothing functions when it’s not beating; the blood will not flow to the other parts of the body.
It’s very important that you chose the right person to give your heart to because it is just too delicate to entrust it to just anyone,because then they will have the opportunity to totally destroy it. Your heart is holy and sacred and it belongs to God. Matthew 7:6 says it best, “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.” How many of us wished we heard those words before we fell in love with the wrong person, who broke our hearts, before we turned to God to fix and repair it.
It is then we realize that the only person who you should give your heart totally to is God, because He created it, and is the best person to nurture and handle it with care. This is why He advises us to seek Him first and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33) so He can add the other ingredients to your life, such as a good and loving spouse, good and loving children, which leads to a good and loving family. The God we serve never looks at external attributes, He goes directly to the heart (1 Samuel 16:7); which tells you who you are dealing with.
The heart is where evil thoughts originate from. Matthew 15:19-20 says it best,”For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornication, thefts, false witness, blasphemies; these are the things which defile a person…” Then Proverbs 14:20 lets us know that the heart knows its own bitterness; that’s why God looks only at the heart and knows who is His and who isn’t. You only have one heart, and it can’t be divided, but if you put Him first, in the top spot, then the devil does not have a chance to destroy it or you. God’s number one desire from the start is for us to serve Him with all our heart it says so all over the Bible.
Deuteronomy 11:13 and 1 Samuel 12:20 tells us, to serve Him with all our hearts. Are you doing so? Then Matthew 22:37 and Luke 10:27 tells us, “You must (shall) love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Who or what do you have occupying God’s position (place) in your heart? You better evict them before it’s too late. For those who are not saved, must I remind you that God is a jealous God (Joshua 24:19) and if you forsake Him, He will forsake you; remember also that the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? (Jeremiah 17:9-10) Only God knows it, “I the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.” Are you ready to give your heart to God?
God and His word is the only discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). So again I ask who would you rather trust with your heart? Don’t allow the devil to control it anymore, just give it to God. To do so just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Trust me and billions of others it will be the best thing you will ever do. There will be no more heartache and pain because your heart will be under God’s protective custody. If you are interested in knowing more about God or to further your studies of His word just read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation,just ask the Lord for wisdom,knowledge and understanding,and He will give it to you
Now unto Him who is able to keep your heart from breaking and to keep us from falling, and present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy; to the only wise God, our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks, for using me to minister to His people. To Him belong majesty, dominion, and power now and forever. May He also grant you the spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to receive His word in Jesus name, Amen.
