A Heart Prepared

Pro 16:1  The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD. 
Pro 16:2  All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits. 
Pro 16:3  Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. 

The preparations of the heart, God has prepared our hearts to seek after him. The answers to our questions come from the LORD.

John 16:24  Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. 

Ask in the name of Jesus, every living creature shall bow to his name.

The heart of man apart from God is wicked. People counsel to follow after your heart, but an unredeemed heart is evil. As the prophet Jeremiah wrote:

Jer 17:9  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 
Jer 17:10  I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. 

The LORD weighs the spirits. The heart is not empty, it follows something, usually some foul spirit. The lusts of the flesh and the temptations of the devil if followed fill the heart with sin. There are spirits of anger, of lust, all these negative things have spirits attached to them. When we hear a politician lie continuously, we know that he is controlled by the devil, for the devil is the father of lies. We are told to love the soul but not the sins of a person The truth is if they die in sin apart from the salvation through Jesus Christ, they will be condemned.

Rev 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. 

Commit your works unto the LORD and your thoughts will be established. Seek the LORD and hear him, read the Bible and then do what he says. Then you will soar as an eagle above the problems of mankind. He has all the power, all the answers and all the resources to bring his will about through your obedience.

Isa 40:29  He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 
Isa 40:30  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 
Isa 40:31  But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. 

The Holy Spirit of God fill you and guide you.
