The Word of God talks a lot about the heart. The heart speaks of our character, our personality, our reason, our will. What shape is our heart in? The Word of God tells of heart trouble. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9. Basically our heart is either cursed – or blessed.
The Lord searches the heart and examines its condition. In the heart of the man who is lost, the very core of his being is ruined by sin. The good news is there is hope for the heart darkened by sin. As David cried out: Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. God cleansed and fixed his heart. For all his failings, he is called a man after God’s own heart.
The Lord was sent to heal the brokenhearted. Our Lord can heal and transform our heart. We are called to guard our hearts. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life, Proverbs 4:23.
