Heart Condition

He said, “O Lord, the God of Israel, there is no god like You in heaven or on earth, keeping covenant and showing lovingkindness to Your servants who walk before You with all their heart;
2 Chronicles 6:14 NASB

You may know some people who are under the care of a doctor for a “heart condition”. I am positive you know many more who have a spiritual “heart condition”. You may be one of them.
If you are struggling with a “heart condition” in need of repair, seek the great Physician. The Lord God. The only true God. The faithful God. With a whole heart you are able to walk with God, love Him and keep His commandments. In turn you can lead others to the Great Physician.

🌹Know therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments;
Deuteronomy 7:9 NASB

Be Strong & Courageous

Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6 NASB

And to Him (Jesus) was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations and men of every language Might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion Which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one Which will not be destroyed. But the saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, for all ages to come.’
Daniel 7:14‭, ‬18 NASB

The sovereign God has established His eternal plan, His eternal kingdom. No fear for the one who believes and trusts in Him. We can be strong and courageous when we walk boldly with God in His kingdom cause.

🌹God will not fail you nor forsake you. Do you believe that? Do you trust Him?

Choose Life

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,
I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,
by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
Deuteronomy 30:18-‬20 NASB

What is life? Loving the Lord God, obeying His voice, holdings fast to Him. This is life with the promise of the promised land awaiting us. Life and length of days are found only in Jesus.

Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
John 14:6 NASB

🌹Do you choose life?

Feasting or Starving?

I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your Law is within my heart.”
Psalms 40:8 NASB

These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.
Deuteronomy 6:6 NASB

The law of his God is in his heart; His steps do not slip.
Psalms 37:31 NASB

Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.
Psalms 119:11 NASB

Jesus *said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.
John 4:34 NASB

🌹What are you filling your heart with? The word of God is a delight to those who partake of it. It is direction. It is a treasure, a sunken treasure deep in the heart, that delights the heart when filled. The food that motivates us to accomplish the will of God. Are you feasting or starving?

Feasting & Living?

And He humbled you and let you go hungry, and fed you with the manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, in order to make you understand that man shall not live on bread alone, but man shall live on everything that comes out of the mouth of the Lord.
Deuteronomy 8:3 NASB

🌹Are you feasting or starving? Living or dying?

How sweet are Your words to my taste!  Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalms 119:103 NASB

Prayer- Lost

(God speaking to Moses)
“Leave Me alone, that I may destroy them (the Israelites, God’s own chosen people) and wipe out their name from under heaven; and I will make of you (Moses) a nation mightier and greater than they.”
Then I (Moses) fell down before the Lord like the first time, for forty days and nights; I neither ate bread nor drank water, because of all your sin whichyou (Israelites) had committed by doing what was evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.
The Lord was also angry enough with Aaron to destroy him; so I also prayed for Aaron at the same time.  Deuteronomy 9:14‭, ‬18‭, ‬20‭

Oh that we would seek to have a heart for the lost and wayward. So much that we would willingly sacrifice our comfort – food, drink, sleep, and interceed (pray) on their behalf before the Lord. OR
That we would revere our Holy God so much we would care about His name and reputation.

“So I fell down before the Lord for the forty days and nights, which I did because the Lord said He would destroy you.
And I prayed to the Lord and said, ‘Lord God, do not destroy Your people, Your inheritance, whom You have redeemed through Your greatness, whom You have brought out of Egypt with a mighty hand!
Otherwise, the people of the land from which You brought us will say, “Since the Lord was not able to bring them into the land which He had promised them, and since He hated them, He has brought them out to kill them in the wilderness!”
Deuteronomy 9:25-26‭, ‬28 NASB

🌹In the name of and for God’s sake are you praying for the lost in your nation to the glory of God?

Do Not Forget

“Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God by failing to keep His commandments, His ordinances, and His statutes which I am commanding you today;
otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, and you build good houses and live in them,  then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery;
Deuteronomy 8:11‭-‬12‭, ‬14 NASB

Sometimes, . . . many times, contentment in the things of this world can draw our focus away from God. The God who is the supplier of our needs.

How do we keep from becoming proud?
Be in the word of God daily. Talk (pray) to God continually throughout the day. Obey Him. And praise Him with a thankful heart for the blessings He gives.


🌹Don’t forget the freedom you were given in Jesus.

The Faithful God

Know therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His faithfulness to a thousand generations for those who love Him and keep His commandments;
Deuteronomy 7:9 NASB

but showing favor (faithfulness) to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
Deuteronomy 5:10 NASB

🌹 Does the knowledge of the faithful God move your heart to love and obedience to Him?

Voice

Then the Lord spoke to you from the midst of the fire; you heard the sound of words, but you saw no form— there was only a voice.
Deuteronomy 4:12 NASB

We may not see the Lord God but His voice still speaks today. The God of the Old Testament is the same God of today. He does not change. He speaks to mankind.

You said, ‘Behold, the Lord our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire; we have seen today that God speaks with mankind, yet he lives.
Deuteronomy 5:24 NASB

Like the nations that the Lord eliminates from you, so you shall perish, because you would not listen to the voice of the Lord your God.
Deuteronomy 8:20 NASB

How do we hear the voice of God? I know He is able, still today, to speak through a burning bush, but today. . .
He gave us His Word in written form;
the gift of prayer to converse with Him;
His Holy Spirit who speaks to our heart;
His church for counsel and confirmation and circumstances in our lives (God is in control) to speak to us.

🌹Can you hear and are you listening to the voice of God?
