For personal devotion + study:
Monday: Your heart is the most important thing about you.
This week as we learn from Belshazzar’s example, we see that idolatory infects the heart. The heart is the very seat of our being, it is the centre of our desire which affects every other area of our life. Over the course of this week, we are going to meditate upon scriptures that talk about the heart
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
What would it mean for you to guard your heart today?
Tuesday: a teachable heart.
The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin. Proverbs 10:8
Is your heart teachable? Are you seeking to learn God’s ways?
Wednesday: a heart that knows deep joy.
The precepts of the Lord are right, and giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eye. Psalm 19:8
Does your heart know the deep abiding joy of God’s presence? Of living in line with His heart for your life?
Thursday: a thankful heart.
I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. Psalm 9:1
What could you give thanks for today? How could you foster more thanksgiving in your day?
Friday: a foolish heart
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. Psalm 14:1
How can you avoid foolishness today? How can you say “yes” to God today?
Saturday: the heart of worship and the worship of the heart.
