It is good to Praise the Lord alleluia. It is good to Praise the Lord alleluia. It is good to Praise the Lord alleluia. It is good to Praise the Lord alleluia. It is good to Praise the Lord alleluia.      It is good to Praise the Lord alleluia. // Come and see the Lord is good, come and see the Lord is good. There is nothing He cannot do, come and see the Lord is good.

Yes! Our Dearly Father is good to us and He is good to all Has created, glory be to His Holy Name forever and ever. Thank God because He answers us when we call. When we call Him in truth with our heart. I remember waking up this morning asking God to help me and restore me my health, beloved He did. He lead me besides the still water and He restore my soul.

The doctor was kind and calm and it was as if Jesus was attending me and I came out first healed in my mind and I know that my body will cooperate with my heart.

Same way the topic of today is truth on it own. When we pray with our mind and hearth not coherent with each other the truth is that we will pray without getting answers to what we are asking for because God cannot go against His Word (Jer 29:13).

Join me as we discover more so that when next you pray make sure your mind and heart are speaking in one accord:

Exodus 25:1-26:14, Psalm 20:1-9, Proverbs 4:23-24, Matthew 25:1-13

Not Just What You Say                                                      

Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life.—Proverbs 4:23

 

I am convinced that one of the major reasons why so many of us fail to receive from God the things which we ought to be receiving lies in the fact that our hearts and our minds are not properly correlated.

Do you find yourself continually praying for things you never receive? I don’t mean things about which there may be some doubt, but things you definitely know the Almighty longs to give you—love, joy, peace, wisdom, patience, and so on. Maybe your mind is asking for one thing and your heart another. You see, it is possible to want something with the mind which is not supported by the heart. The mind is a much easier part of the personality to deal with than the heart, but, as our text for today states: “Guard your heart … for it is the source of life.”

We can approach God with our minds and think that because we have a clear idea of what we want, God will give it to us, but the heart may contain hidden doubts which prevent us from being fully integrated people. We fail to receive because we are not asking out of a fully integrated personality. As someone has put it: “God does not just answer prayer—He answers you.” Those who wish to receive from God the things He delights to give ought always to remember that who we are is just as important (if not more so) than what we ask. God is not just listening to our words; He is listening to us.

Prayer                                   

O Father, the more I meditate on the need for heart and mind to be in perfect coordination, the more I am set on fire to become a fully integrated person. I know You are eagerly reaching down to me; help me to be as eager to reach up to You. Amen.
