What a person speak’s out of their mouth is what lives their heart’s.
45″The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil [man] out of the evil [treasure] brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.
You have to remain silent to listen.
The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? (Jeremiah 17:9)
Jeremiah 17:10 gives us the answer on how to guard our hearts.
I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.
We give our hearts to Him to search and to test our minds on emotion’s and thoughts. Jesus is the way we guard our hearts! He is the only way! We can bring it to Him and lay it down, but we must remember that is true discernment because Jesus is failure proof. Jesus is full of justice, Jesus has no darkness or the ability to lie. He is truth, love, and grace. We must remember that. No matter who say’s what we know is to be false (gossip, lies, so on). We are aware they have a lack of real treasure, but we don’t know why! We would be silly to think we could even understand the intent of a beating heart. Only Jesus knows why people do what every single person at some point has or will do. Jesus sees past the harsh, nasty, accusatory words and sees a heart that is lacking His love, grace, and mercy. It is a problem for every beating heart. Don’t worry or be anxious just know that He is taking care of everything concerning His children. Remember this truth today if you find yourself in yet another situation where you have been wounded by someone’s rude words or even an opinion. They are not themselves right now; they might be dealing with seemingly overwhelming circumstances that are stretching them tissue paper thin. They might even be dealing with jealousy, insecurity, anxiety or some other wretched, deceitful, heart emotions. Do not let the words of the enemy take root in your life. That is the source, not your brother or sister. Let’s be mindful of our words today, let’s remember we’re all in this thing together. I think we all could just breathe a little easier today and every day if we just cut each other some slack. It is hard being human. Even, God saw that problem and made way for us; Jesus, God, wrapped in flesh and bone. I am so very grateful for that beautiful way! <3 Thank you, Jesus, for being the only way to the Father. <3
Lord, we are thankful for your son Jesus Christ making it possible to overcome all things! Lord, we come to you today to give you our broken hearts. Lord, we need you to search our hearts and test our minds before we respond or speak. Help, us Lord to remember that our hearts are deceitful and wretched if left unchecked by You. Thank you, Jesus, for making and molding us into you. Lord, help us to have a greater compassion and understanding of You. In Jesus name, I ask all these things, Amen
