First Things First Devo – Heart Check
June 10, 2019
READ Proverbs 27
It’s true, you can tell a lot about a person by the way they dress, what they tweet, or who they hang out with. But we all know that people can hide behind these things. Let’s face it, we’ve all done it before.
Proverbs makes it clear that while a person can conceal or reveal their heart through what they say and do, the heart is exposed and completely transparent before God.
“As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects the man.” Proverbs 27:19
Therefore the question we must ask ourselves is, “What kind of heart do I have?” Is your heart never satisfied and left always wanting more? Do you respond with pride or humility when you receive praise? Do you confess and repent of sin or ignore it as your heart gets harder and harder? If you want a healthy heart, answer these questions honestly.
Good news: our hearts do not have to stay where they are. Following Jesus will soften your heart, opposing Him will only harden it. The choice is yours.
PRAY “Jesus, I will follow you, soften and change my heart.”
