““The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? 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 17:9-10 NLT
There is nothing we can hide from the Lord. He sees beyond the exterior and into the depths of our hearts. We saw this in the life of Jesus as He spoke of the Pharisees being white washed tombs. On the outside they seemed righteous but their hearts were hard and far from the Lord.
May we desire to have a heart that is willing and open before the Lord. May we have a heart that responds to the gentle prompting of the Holy Spirit. Great rewards await those who walked on this earth with a pure heart. May we desire to be known as a person after God’s own heart.
