2 Chronicles 2:1-2
1. Amaziah was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.
2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.
To have a perfect heart is to be faithful and true, trustworthy, dutiful, patriotic, dedicated amongst others. Doing what is right without a perfect heart is like pouring water on a stone to grow. It is awful that this is who and what we have mostly become, our character and regular attitude. We read the Word of God because it is right, we give because it is right, we pray because it is right, we are the great preachers and teachers of our time and smile because it is right but deep in there; in the heart is a treacherous heart and yet we call ourselves ‘born again’. Dear one, quit been fake and be real.
Christ is a reality and not an illusion. You don’t have to feel like worshiping or praying before you do it. If it is in your heart and from your heart, you don’t have to be told or feel. You don’t have to be in the spirit because you heard the sound of a worship song.
If you still depend on listening to preachers and songs to get spiritual then you have a long way to go. Move out from your body and get connected to God at heart! In the Spirit!
Beloved loyalty is a virtue. How loyal are you? Who are you? Your heart determines your personality and it reveals you both outwardly and inwardly. For God looks in the heart. He is perfect and you cannot improve on Him, so whatever you do for God, you do is for yourself. Whatever you sow…
We have to recognise that there cannot be a relationship with God and mankind unless there is loyalty, love, patience, persistence which cannot come from a mouth without a heart. Let nothing turn your heart from God.
Beloved in the Lord, it is my prayer that your heart aligns to the Word of God. May the words of your mouth be acceptable to God because they are perfect in Jesus Christ, Amen.
