My Healed Heart

 My healing was not of my body alone, but also of my HEART. After the healing I desired to gain knowledge, understanding and wisdom of God and have sought a personal relationship with the Father and Son. I have studied and read the New Testament, Proverbs, Psalms, Song of Songs, and have started on Ecclesiastes; in the past (in my childhood) most of the Old Testament. This list does not include the many scriptures I’ve been drawn too during my studies.  I have also listened to many Preachers and learned a great deal. The guidance of The Holy Spirit has also been paramount in my zeal for knowledge, understanding and wisdom.

One particular aspect that preachers seem to be overlook or just cover by a few “catch” phrases is the Heart. Proverbs 4:23 “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of Life.”  Proverbs 20:5 “Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.” Proverbs 17:22 “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones”. John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." Lastly Proverbs 3:3 "Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:" The Bible uses the word heart 762 times. This is more times used than the words: love, faith, mind, and thought.

When I was healed my heart was healed, which lead to many realizations, that I had been blind too. God works from the inside (the heart) out. Man tries to work intellectually, from his thoughts, this doesn’t work. Many times I tried unsuccessfully to change my thoughts and actions without God’s Grace working in our hearts this is impossible. Drug addictions are a perfect example; no matter how sincere one is, the addiction comes back. The reason is we are working from a thought conscience level and not from the heart. Proverbs 16:23 “The HEART of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.” Notice the wording: “The Heart (of the wise) teacheth his mouth and addeth learning to his lips.” It is the beliefs of the heart that leads our actions.

When the beliefs of our heart harmonize with the Will of God, it is then that change comes without stress and effort. In my own life when my heart beliefs changed, my heart is now sensitive to things that are contrary to a personal relationship with God.  My taste in music, movies, tv shows, books suddenly changed; this just happened without stress or worry. The old man is truly dead, I am a new man, because of Jesus’ finished work. In Jesus I am made righteous, not through my works but through Jesus. I cannot help but think, if beliefs of the heart were taught more, than more believers would live a truly victorious life. I encourage everyone to do their own personal study on the matters of the heart.

Mood: cheerful
