"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"
~ Jeremiah 17:9 ~
"For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
~ Hebrews 4:12 ~
Father God, I pray you would open that which I have closed.
The things of You that I have closed off, please open.
Lord, I don't even know my own heart, which is desperately wicked.
I am in desperate need for You to reveal my heart.
The condition of my heart, You know the thoughts and intents of my heart, that I don't even know.
I thank You for Your anointing to soften the hardened areas of my heart so that I may operate freely in who You are.
Lord, I know there are those throughout my household, neighborhood, those of whom I pass by in the parking lot or in the aisle of a store that You want to touch and will touch. When You intend to utilize me, I pray that I would be willing and obedient.
Lord, the power of the fear of rejection is what hinders and stops me from progressing. "What if they say, 'No'?" Yet you reply back, "What if they say, 'Yes'?"
You know the hearts of those who I know and whom I pass by. You know the achings in their hearts, the desires, the sins and the victories and what seem to them as major defeat.
Lord, I am in desperate need of keeping Your Word. If I must 'keep' Your Word, then I know there is a possibility that it can be taken from me. Many times it is taken or given unintentionally due to circumstances. There is a desperate, life changing 'must' to keep my mind stayed and focused on You.
Lord, thank You that nothing is impossible for You! Yet, it is impossible for You to lie. Almighty God, thank You that You are not a man that You should ever lie
(Numbers 23:19)! Thank You that this is truly an impossibility for You!
I love You Lord and I thank You for Your great revealing Truth that cuts deeper than the defintion of deep (Hebrews 4:12). Your Truth cuts with deep precision and great purpose, allowing freedom to manifest as I grow in You!
I pray I embrace Truth from You and from others. I don't want to reject Your truth because it doesn't make me feel good at the moment. Life in You is not about my very moment, it's about your moment in the midst of eternity. You are not subject to time, nor will You ever be, as You are eternal! May I embrace Truth and reject the lies. Thank You for what You shared with me through Tim today, "The saying, "Truth lies somewhere in the middle" is a lie. Truth doesn't lie and it's no where near the middle. Jesus! You are Truth! Thank You for revealing my desperately wicked heart as it is replaced with Your beauty of Truth!
