God Who Knows the Heart

Locked heart
"I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness."

Hearts are a common symbol of love and affection. So much that it is one of the most popular icons in commerce.

When we think of someone with a kind or generous heart, we most often focus on the outward manifestation of those emotions. But God sees things altogether differently.

It is a comfort to think of a God who knows our hearts and can read them as easily as we read the letters on a page. But it can also be a scary thought when we consider those things we are most ashamed of and wish that no one knew.

In this study, we examine some riveting thoughts about the human heart and its relationship between it and the God who made it.

    Did Waybe Jackson write a commenmtary on Daniel? I enjoyed the article on Daniel in Voll. 40 of the Christian Courier.

    This has me thinking about Psalm 139:23-24 and praying those very words.

    When God reads our hearts He does so from the basis of His own nature. In this lesson you can learn four important points that are foundational with God and how they relate to our hearts and the actions that spring from them. Many Bible examples are given which stress the idea that God is serious about our motives, dispositions and obedience. We must impress ourselves with God’s vantage point of the situation. Learn what that is here. Learning what we can come to understand about God will help us address our heart problems and see things more seriously so that we may serve Him more diligently and vigilantly each day.
