The Lord direct our hearts. September 25
And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patient waiting for Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:5
May the Lord himself direct our hearts. The human heart is, according to scripture, desperately wicked. I believe we can see this around us. So we need the Lord to be in our hearts. When we repent of sin and surrender our lives to the trust of Jesus. The Bible’s says he gives us a new heart. Praise God, this is the answer. As Christians believers,He now dwells in our hearts. The evil gone and new desires inside of us. This is so radical a change Jesus likened it to being born again. Wow!
Now as born again believers, we dare not just leave our hearts to do whatever they want. As a fields tendency is to grow up and turn back into briars and thickets. So will our hearts and lives tend to want to go back into wrong. This is why Paul prayed that the Lord himself would direct their hearts into Gods love. We should pray each day, Lord lead us not into wrong but direct us into you and your ways. Just as sure as he came and gave you a new heart he readily desires to guide that heart closer and closer to him. Until the day we see him. So let’s cooperate with the Holy Spirit and be in Gods word for surely he will lead us into his love.
