WHAT DOES HE SEE
“I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”
Jeremiah 17:10 KJV
God searches our heart. What does He see when He looks into our heart? Does He see things that make Him happy or does He see things that hurt Him and break His heart? It is so important that we keep our heart in right standing with God because we don’t know when Jesus is coming back for us.
If Jesus comes back for us today, are we ready to go? Have we forgiven everyone who has hurt us? Have we asked those we hurt to forgive us? It hurts God when we refuse to forgive those who hurt us. How dare you and I go to a Holy God and ask Him to forgive us if we refuse to forgive those who have hurt us.
A pastor said in his sermon “If you would keep your own heart in right standing with God, you wouldn’t have time to judge others and criticize them”. The pastor is right. It is a full time job making sure there is nothing in my heart that hurts God and breaks His heart.
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us and forgiving us when we hurt You. I pray that we will love and forgive others just as You love and forgive us. If there is anything in my heart that hurts You, please show it to me so I can repent and make it right. I love You, dear Father. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
