You can trust your heart, for it is good. I believe all of the evil in the world stems from man believing that he has an evil heart. There’s a lot to be said for the verse “As a man believes in his heart, so is he..” Man will act out what he believes in his heart. This isn’t saying it’s what God believes about man, but what man believes about himself. It’s man living out of his deception, about himself and God.
Religion has taught generations that they have a wicked, evil heart. With that being our steady diet, it’s no wonder the world is a mess. The good news is that we were created in the image of our Father and we’ve never lost that image. We’ve believed a lie and have lived in the Matrix….but we’re waking up, one by one. Holly, the good news is that our incredibly, eternally loving Creator knows the deception we’ve been under and is wooing us into seeing our true reality…in Christ from before time began. Perfect. Complete.
Humanity has forgotten that people are born fascinating. Think about how we look at a newborn baby. We stare at it for hours on end because every blink, smile, noise and movement is fascinating. We don’t have to learn to be fascinating, and in God’s eyes we never lose that ability. We, as humans, forget it. We forget it about ourselves and others. Every form of abuse is based on a humanity that is sleep walking. But we’re waking up!
The Lord is not persuaded by our fears because He knows the value of each heartbeat and the struggle of each soul. He’s got all of it.
He’s not the author of confusion or abuse. If it doesn’t look like Jesus, it’s not from God.
