Of The State Of The Heart

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Chronicles 16:9(KJV); For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

God wants to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are perfect toward Him.

This means that the state of our hearts will always determine how far we can go in God.

David was a man after God’s own heart(1 Samuel 13:14). It was his desire to show the glory of God to his generation and the generations to come(Psalms 71:18).

However, David said in Psalms 139:23-24, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts. And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

He was humble enough to ask God to search his heart.

Yes, he was a man who wanted to declare God’s glorious wonders in his generation and the generations to come but it was important to him that his heart be examined before God.

There is a man of God believing for a big ministry but he wants the numbers in order to make a name for himself, his heart is not perfect toward God.

There is a Christian hungry for the anointing but he wants it to show people how powerful he can be, his heart is not perfect toward God.

God is ready to expose you to deeper places in Him, to elevate you in the spirit but the question is, “Is your heart perfect toward God?”

This is why in the pursuit of any thing in the name of the gospel and of Christ, we have to get to the place of deep personal reflection, to allow God to deal with us and in us, that when the things of the spirit are added to us, we can never use them for vice.

FURTHER STUDY: Psalms 26:2, Mathew 5:8

The state of our hearts will always determine how far we can go in God.

PRAYER: My Lord, I thank you for this Word. In humility, I break before you that you will deal with me Lord. I yield to the instruction of your spirit in the true patterns of ministry and the wisdom by which we grow in the things of the spirit. To the glory of your name. Amen.
