The Heart of God
There is a secret to joy.
There is a way of life that offers hope many people don't understand or know about. A path that leads to the most incredible destiny. It's discovering the heart of God or meeting and experiencing Jesus.
It sounds cliche yet without Him, everything we touch, and make, and strive for will only result in emptiness. Without Him, we will find that our relationships are breaking apart. Without Him, we will find no resolution to the emptiness of disappointed dreams, the hope of conquering addiction, or the sickness of a sweet child. We were made for so much more than this earth offers us. We were made for a living love-relationship with our Maker. We were made to receive all of our peace, all of our love, and all of our satisfaction from Him. The problem is quite often we've traded the joy and plans God has for us- for counterfeit idols. As Isaiah 59:2 says "But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear." Jeremiah 2:13 says "My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and they have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water." So friends, we have to choose whether or not daily we will journey towards the heart of God. What is the heart of God? What does it mean to transform our thinking according to His? What does it mean to get to know a Savior that understands the depths of our hearts? Journey with me as we get to know who God is- on a more relational level- to understand what His character is about and what His higher purpose is for us. Sometimes we have to go back to basics-- where we remember to meet God as a friend and Savior, to confess our sins as someone who has fallen so short of being holy, and to let the Holy Spirit change the thoughts in our minds..
