Sometimes our heart may get in the way of purpose..
A trip through the heart and all of it's ways can be distracting on one hand....then doubtful in another .... and then turn around and become very shy or reserved....
So I ask...
What is the Condition Of Your Heart?
Coy, could be your answer, which means shy or reserved. How many times have you put your heart on reserve waiting for something or someone...only to be let down in the end? ...Possibly way too many times to count, right?
I guess it depends on how you view the word, reserve or reservation....which can mean to protect or, in other instances, to have doubt.
Guarding or protecting the heart can come in handy... For Proverbs 4:23 says, "Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life." By guarding your heart, you can protect it from turning the wrong corner in your purpose. However, if it is held too guarded, you can miss the right turn because you aren't letting anything in. Having wisdom, knowledge and understanding, when it comes to the heart will help identify when it's the right time to open up.
Doubting ourselves comes more often than not; especially if being analytical about everything before proceeding. This happens time and time again but God! In Proverbs 3:5-6, it reads, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take." This one task... to trust God and not your own doubt; it will guide you on the right path. A path you may not have taken on your own because you started to overthink and talked yourself out of it.
Again, what is the condition of your heart?
"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."-Psalm 73:26
Stand firm in the LORD and know that He has got your back. He is protecting and showing you your path for your purpose. Let God be your heart's strength, when your heart gets distracted, doubtful or disdainful.
Will you trust Him?
Just remember you never have a bad day; just bad experiences that you can learn from!
Have a blessed week!
