GOD’S LIVING COVENANT-FROM HIS HEART TO OUR HEART: “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts.” (Psalm 139:23) _________________________________________________________________________
We love you today! We often error in considering ourselves and our circumstances. Instead consider Jesus and our identification with Him. We are no longer what we were. We are the very righteousness of Him who died for us and took our place. To many, these are just more Christian words and slogans which are repeated in empty and powerless monotones. But to those who receive them in heart, they are the very life of God in us, on us and through us.

Consider Philippians 2:13 with me. “Not in your own strength for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.”

Don’t look at yourself the way you used to be, look at your self the way God sees you now. Consider what Jesus did for you and what is yours because of His work at the cross. Your old self was crucified with Christ and your new self arose with Him!

Yes, you can choose to stay where you were. But you can also choose to live life as the new creature that you are. Christ has traded everything that you were for everything that He is! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The choice to live the life of Jesus starts with the heart. The heart is the very center of your thoughts, words and actions. Look at what the angel told Daniel in Daniel 10:12. “Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.”

Our hearts are the key to living a victorious life in Jesus. Out of our hearts come our thoughts which produce our actions and words. The angel told Daniel that he had come because of his words. Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” In Mark 11 He said that we will have what we believe and then say.

This is not a teaching on our words today, but rather one on our hearts. Mine still needs some work. I am not anywhere where I want to be yet with my heart-relationship with God, but I am earnestly working on it. I have asked the Holy Spirit to help me.
How about you? Are you where you want to be? What is the fruit that you see from your heart and words? Sometimes even as I speak, as I hear my words, they are like a sword in my heart. I need a new heart so that I may walk like He walked.

Consider the following two songs as our prayer today.

1. Search me, O God, and know my heart today,
Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray;
See if there be some wicked way in me;
Cleanse me from every sin, and set me free.
2. I praise Thee, Lord, for cleansing me from sin;
Fulfill Thy word and make me pure within;
Fill me with fire, where once I burned with shame;
Grant my desire to magnify Thy name.
3. Lord, take my life, and make it wholly Thine;
Fill my poor heart with Thy great love divine;
Take all my will, my passion, self and pride;
I now surrender, Lord, in me abide.
4. O Holy Ghost, revival comes from Thee;
Send a revival, start the work in me;
Thy Word declares Thou wilt supply our need;
For blessings now, O Lord, I humbly plead.
Change My Heart Oh God

Change my heart oh God
Make it ever true
Change my heart oh God
May I be like You

Change my heart oh God
Make it ever true
Change my heart oh God
May I be like You

You are the potter
I am the clay
Mold me and make me
This is what I pray

Change my heart oh God
Make it ever true
Change my heart oh God
May I be like You


God’s Promise For You Today: GOD’S FAVOR IS YOURS TODAY!: “For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received [all had a share and we were all supplied with] one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift.” (John 1:16)
