Dear Saints of God, we all are people of prayer and we pray about lot of things and issues surrounding us and our loved ones. We pray for blessing, healing restoration, repentance etc. but do we ever pray “Lord tell me whats inside my heart”. The Bible says our heart is deceitful above all things (Jeremiah 17:9). We ourselves are the biggest victim of our hearts. Most of the time our heart portrays a picture other than reality, specifically when it comes to ourselves, to admitting our own mistakes or correcting ourselves. This is one of the reasons we never see the true picture. Many believers who are going through relationship issues or adjusting to a relation generally pray
change the other person rather than change me O Lord. Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7: 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
A lot of times even if we search ourselves we will not find mistakes in our own being, so its necessary to come in front of God on a daily basis and ask Him to search us because He is not biased and His word is a two edged sword. The knowledge of what’s wrong with me is a potential point of a turn around. If we do not know what are the wrong issues, emotions and thoughts we are harboring inside us, we will go in and around the same wilderness for years and will not reach our destination just like the Israelites who were delivered from Egypt. They were delivered but yet not free.
Let there be a change in our hearts and let us pray that the Holy Spirit should search our hearts and bring to light the hidden issues in ourselves, which are creating hindrances in our walk of victory. Have a blessed day- Pr. Bakshi
