Wisdom from Above

Dr. Charles Stanley

May 4, 2018

What's in Your Heart?

Watch over your heart with diligence,

for from it flow the springs of life

Proverbs 4:23

Put your head down and imagine God holding you as a loving Father

embracing His beloved child. You may be surprised by the emotions

you feel. Hopefully, you feel secure in His overwhelming love for you.

However, it is possible that you're uncomfortable and wish to push Him

away because somewhere in your heart, you don't really trust Him. You

may feel a sense of conviction due to some unconfessed sin. Or you may

realize that you've been running away from Him all your life, when all

you really wanted was to feel safe in your heavenly Father's arms.

Whatever, the case, be still and allow God to deal with whatever

emotions and issues arise. Do not fear. He will teach you what to do.

The Father can remove any encumbrance you have to knowing Him,

and He can draw you into a deeper, more intimate relationship than you

have ever known.

So consider: Do you truly trust God? Are you confident that He is

able to help you? Are you convinced that the Father is willing to listen

to you and come to your aid? I hope you are. But if your answer to any

of these questions is no, I pray that the Father will do a mighty work in

your life and show you beyond a shadow of a doubt that you can place

all your hope in Him. Not only is He worthy of your trust; He also loves

you unconditionally and wants to show you the extraordinary life He

created you for. So spend some time in prayer today and allow Him to

reveal to you who He really is.

Father, You know what's in my heart. Thank You for healing

my wounds, forgiving my sins, and leading me to the awesome

life You have for me. I love You and will trust You, Father.

Amen
