What is my heart whispering to me?
One word...one word only...Seek...
While "follow your heart" on the surface seems to be good advice, I silent whisper reminded me of a passage in Jeremiah 17:9 about the human heart:
The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful,When it comes to my hopes and dreams for 2013, God's Word (not my heart) guides me to His priorities:
a puzzle that no one can figure out.
But I, God, search the heart
and examine the mind.
I get to the heart of the human.
I get to the root of things.
I treat them as they really are, not as they pretend to be. (The Message)
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matt. 6:33 (New Living Translation)
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him. Lam. 3:25 (HCSB)
You will call to Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jer. 29:12-13 (HCSB)
Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! I Chron. 16:11 (ESV)The truth of the matter is, I have no confidence in my heart, my will, my ambitions...UNLESS...I seek God daily and continually and am confident that my agenda is in line with His agenda for me.
That only can be found if I truly seek His heart...not mine.
