From the Inside out – Pastor Anthony –

July 18, 2014 Devotionals, Uncategorized

Scripture: Proverbs 27:19 – ‘As water reflects the face, so ones life reflects the heart.’

Observation:
My heart is the core engine that drives my life. Everything I do. Everything anyone does has it’s life root in the heart. What fills my heart, will fill my life. A broken heart is seen in a broken life, broken relationships and made clearly – externally present. Likewise a whole heart will lead to a whole life – full of faith, hope, love, joy and peace. As life is perceived – so also are the depths of the heart uncovered.

Application:
I need to embrace this truth from the inside out. I cannot change my heart with deeds, actions, external appearances. I need a heart surrendered to Christ, so that my life becomes a reflection of such surrender. I must keep asking my heart, “What is driving you?” Let love cast out fear, faith replace worry and hope replace dispair and anger. Heart issues are God issues – my heart is at the potters wheel. Surrendered to God – He will shape my heart – He will shape my life into something glorious for His own pleasure.

Prayer:
I lay me down – I see my heart is what You’re after, You can have it, and with my heart – shape my life to reflect your goodness, greatness and glory. Amen.
