The Crafter of our Heart
He gazes on all the inhabitants of the earth from His dwelling place. He alone crafts their hearts; He considers all their works.
Have you ever considered the fact that God crafted your heart? He cares deeply about the things you hold dear because He created your heart to care about them. For this reason, He hears us when we pray from the heart and take everything that delights us and hurts us before His throne.
God’s purpose is to transform us into the image of Christ, and that change begins with the heart. Our behavior does not change until our heart does. When we yield it to Him, we allow Him to craft what He wants to accomplish in the earth through us.
God considers all our works. He sees all our ways – both good and bad. In the places where we are sinful, He promises to heal us, indicating that a hurt in our heart has caused us to stray. He has the power to heal and lead us to the path where we need to be to fulfill our purpose. Psalm 37:4 tells us that when we delight in Him, He gives us the desires of our hearts. Without doubt, our heart is the very tool God uses to speak to us, guide us, and use us to do great things that He has created us to do.
Don’t ignore the feeling you have in your heart today. Take it to the throne. If you are excited and feeling a time of praise, then praise Him with all your might and give Him thanks for the great things He has done. If you are broken, hurting, and lonely, take your pain before the throne and ask Him to heal you. He has the answer for every need, and He crafts your heart to desire and to act according to the plan He has for you. Trust your heart to Him, and watch Him do immeasurably more that you could ask or think.
Have a blessed day!
