Who Controls Your Heart?


Thoughts to Ponder by Doris

February Fourteenth is known as Valentine's Day in the United States, and is a special day to remember the people we love. Men love to give chocolates and flowers to their wives and sweethearts. Cakes and cookies are baked to resemble hearts!

Hopefully this romantic day of the year isn't the only time we remember to recognize loved ones with gifts! Do we think only with our hearts?

The heart is the chief organ of our physical life. It is a hollow, muscular organ with its rhythmic contraction, and is like a pump maintaining the circulation of blood in our bodies. We see the importance of the heart in Leviticus 17:14-- "the life of every creature is its blood."

The Scripture encourages us to guard our hearts: Proverbs 4:23-- "Above all else guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life." The heart is the very center and core of our life, the real self! Character is determined by our motives, and motives are a matter of the heart--what we choose to do.

Proverbs 14:30-- "A heart at peace gives life to the body."

Do we allow God to control our hearts each day of the year? We can plan our way, but God determines our steps.

Proverbs 21:2 —- "All a man's way seem right to him, but the Lord weighs the heart."

Proverbs 16:9 — "The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps."

Proverbs 3:5 and 6 — "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths."

Thought to Ponder:  Are you allowing God to control your heart and direct your steps?
