Prepared heart. October 11
And he did evil, because he prepared not his heart to seek the Lord. 2 Chronicles 12:14
Rehoboam was a king of Israel who had a real opportunity to do good for God and the people of Israel. But instead he did evil. The Bible says the reason was ; he didn’t prepare his heart to seek the Lord. In the Bible the Heart represented the center of ones being. He just simply had other ideas for his life rather than God. Sure enough if a man or woman puts other things above Gods will for their life, we will run into trouble and evil. Our hearts need God at their center. When we do prepare our heart for God, we will find not only Gods presence but his favor and help in all areas of our life. Let’s prepare our hearts by spending quality time with God in prayer, study of the Bible, worship of the Lord. Scripture declares; blessed is the person who’s delight is in God and his word. The Bible also declares in Psalm 37:4 delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of your heart.
