God’s Heart

I was thinking about my last post where I said I would probably spend a lives journey trying to get to the center of God’s heart. As I thought about that I thought God does not try to hide His heart from us. He wants to reveal it to us so with that belief I just asked Him “Father what is the center of your heart?”  and these scriptures came to me Psalm 81:13 “Oh that My people would listen to Me, That Israel would walk in My ways! I would soon subdue their enemies, And turn My hand against their adversaries.”

Deut 5:29 “Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear (respect, honor) Me and always keep all My commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!” Do you hear His heart? It is for us and for our children, that it would go well with us both forever.

Yet, because He knows that we are but dust (Ps 103:14) and what He desired for us was impossible for us to accomplish in our own strength He did it for us. It was in His heart to achieve what we could not do for ourselves. Eze 36:26&27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgements and do them.”

He did it for us by sending His Son to accomplish it through us. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior we are enabled through the power of the Holy Spirit to listen and obey. For the sake of His Holy name He gave us the ability through a new heart and Spirit to listen and obey. It is no longer a matter of I have to listen and obey it is a matter of I get to listen and obey out of love for my Father and what His love caused Him to do for us because we could not do it for ourselves. What an awesome loving Father we have.

So rather than spend my life trying to get to the center of the heart of God I will instead spend the rest of my life with the power of the Holy Spirit trying to fulfill the longing of the heart of God which is to listen and obey that it might go well with me. I know that will not be easy but it is wisdom. I pray that is your heart’s desire as well.

Thankyou Father for Your heart and for teaching me. I so need it every single day. ;)
