Psalms 27:8 ~ When you said ” Seek My Face” My heart said to you, “Your Face Lord, I will seek ”
How many times in life has someone said something to you and your mouth answers but your heart says something else. Our heart contradicts our mouth, working in opposition. Our mouths profess’ but our hearts believe.
Dallas Willard said ” You can live opposite to what you profess, but you can’t live opposite to what you believe”. our heart holds the key to who we truly are.
In the realm of the spirit our heart speaks louder than our words. Our heart can be breaking with emotional pain, grief, heartache, rejection or anger and we have a big smile on our face, but after a while the pain can no longer be hidden and will spill over in our everyday life and actions.
So when God says he speaks to us he is speaking to our heart. What was the last thing he said to you and what did your heart say? If he asked you to forgive someone, your lips may have said yes but what did your heart say? If he asked you to bless someone with an act of kindness, your lips may have said yes, but what did your heart say? he may have asked you to apologise to someone, your lips may have said yes but what did your heart say?
Dear Heart, it is time for our lips to align with our heat. Don’t betray your hearts desire with wrong words.
