But I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards according to what their actions deserve.(Jeremiah 17:10)
The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? The Lord does. He knows your motives, even when you try to behave as if your heart is pure and sincere. He will expose your motives, if you go too long unchecked, by the conviction of the Holy Spirit. It is not wise to play around with the one that knows all and sees all. You may think you got away with what you said to the cashier, to your boss, to your spouse, your child, family member or co-walker, but you haven’t. Just because months have gone by, God will reward according to what your action deserve.
Begin today to clean up and live holy lives, just as God is holy! Don’t allow the enemy to make promises to you that feel good or look good. Be strong and courageous! Learn how to fight in the spiritual realm in prayer. Allow God to do a heart check on you as you lay it all on the alter! Forgiveness is a powerful break through!
