Thought for the Day – The Heart


~Revelation 2:18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

God sees all, whether we want to believe that or admit to it does not matter in the least. The world use to believe that the earth was flat but that did not make it so. God’s word stated otherwise but people were foolish still. (Isaiah 40:22) But people will believe what they want to believe, despite the facts – despite what the word of God says. Why? Because the heart of man is sinful. (Jeremiah 17:9)

But no one is wiser than God. He knows our thoughts – He knows our heart. He knows the deepest, darkest secrets of our hearts and we cannot fool Him. But people are foolish and think that He doesn’t see or that God doesn’t care. How very sad this is! God tries the heart – we cannot fool Him. He knows our intentions and motives even if we don’t speak them aloud to someone else! (Jeremiah 17:10) And because of this, man will receive his dues. Nothing is hid from God – whether mankind wants to admit that or not. All our sins, outwardly evident or those done in secret, are known to Him and He will bring those into the open on Judgment Day. (Psalm 90:8)

What hope is there? Praise the Lord for Christ’s death on the cross! He sacrificed Himself because He knew that man was weak and powerless over sin. He knew we were but dust. (Psalm 103:14) But now that we know of His sacrificial death, we are without excuse. We have the wonderful opportunity to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to receive eternal life. If one rejects His salvation, He will face the judgment of the Lord, Jesus. (Isaiah 42:3) The word of God has so much information about the upcoming judgment for the unbelieving soul.

To the one who has accepted His sacrifice and is born again with newness of life (II Corinthians 5:17), there is a cost. It’s not just a mere blab it and grab it. Along with salvation, along with that change in our lives, comes a commitment to live godly and separated from what we use to be! (II Timothy 2:19) The Lord is now our Shepherd and we are to follow after Him as sheep follow their shepherd. We know His voice and He speaks to us through His precious Holy Spirit and His word! (John 10:14, John 10:27) Nothing can separate us from our Shepherd – no one can separate us from His love! (John 10:28)

Live like you are a born-again child of God, Christian. With all the false prophets out there today who are preaching easy believism, the world has had its fill with the so-called ‘Christian.’ Be that light – that beacon – that shows others there is something different about your Christianity!
