CHANGE OF HEART
"For where your
treasure is, there will your heart be, also!"
Did you resolve to please God? Are you sharing your heart with Him?
To deepen your relationship with Him requires a "change of heart."
According to scripture, all human life is centered in the heart. My
concordance listed 87 verses speaking of the heart. As children of God
seeking to please Him, give thought to these "heart characteristics"
necessary if you truly desire a "Heart for God."
A Believing Heart: "For with the heart one believes unto
righteousness and with the mouth confession if made unto salvation."
A Seeking Heart: "With my whole heart I have sought you...;
let me not stray from Your commandments." Psalm 119:10-11
A Clean Heart: "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew
a right spirit within me." Psalm 51:10
A Pure Heart: "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall
see God." Matthew 5:8
A Discerning Heart: "For the Word of God is quick and powerful,
sharper than a two-edged sword... and is a discerner of thoughts and
intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:12
An Understanding Heart: "Therefore give your servant an
understanding heart to judge your people, that I may discern between
good and evil." 1 Kings 3:9
Giving Heart: "Every man according as he purposes in his heart,
so let him give, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2nd Corinthians
A True Heart: "Let us draw near with a true heart, in full
assurance of faith. . . ." Hebrews 10:22
A Wise Heart: "A wise heart discerns both time and judgment
because for every matter there is a time for judgment." Ecclesiastes
A Loving Heart: "Love the Lord your with all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength."
The Word tells us that, "...The Lord sees not as man sees, for
man looks on outward appearance, but the Lord looks in the heart."
1st Samuel 16:7b

One evening, we had a patient present to the clinic who was expecting
her second child in a few weeks. She had a case of severe, painful
acne break out on her face. Her acne, which normally is easily treated
with medication, was more complicated to treat because of the pregnancy.
She told me about her work as a waitress and how, due to the severe
acne, her superiors prevented her from working because the customers
complained. Tears rolled down her cheeks as she explained how she
needed to work and needed the money.
