Word : The Heart of Man

The Heart of Man

There are a lot of assertions about the heart.  The scriptures take the hearth very important   because it is a small organ that manages the whole body and as small as it is it can cause havoc into a live if not properly managed. The heart, naturally has some characteristics that can impair your spiritual life. A lot of people are faced with a lot of challenge, problems, quarrels, setback which could have been prevented if they have identified kind of heart peculiar to them.

The bible says in: Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Naturally; The Freedom of the heart is to THINK, WILL & ACT from its affections.
ü The heart can be deceptive.
ü The heart can be Tricky.
ü The heart can be Evil.
ü The heart can be confused.
There are different categories of heart; we will analyze today;
v Unsaved Heart: There are a lot of people that are not born again; a lot of people go to church but are not born again; many of the pastors are not born again.

"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." {Rom 10:10}
What we need is;  genuine bible salvation.
"Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling {Phil 2:12}
You need to work out your salvation; it should not be the compromising one; not when it is convenient; not about the popular believe and trend.
Salvation it's free but you need to work to make heaven.
Not all born again will make heaven.
Simon the sorcerer  was born again but, his hearth is not right with God. He was following the apostles; peradventure also talking to people about the gospel but because his heart was not right, he asked peter to give him the power to do miracles. {Act 8:9-25}
v Wicked Heart: If a person does not put his heart under the guide of the Holy Ghost, you will tend to enjoy doing evil. People with wicked heart are dangerous to be friends with.

v Discouraged Heart: When some people are faced with trials and challenges, the usually easily give up, they are discouraged. Such people should pray against the discouraged heart. "If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small." {Proverbs 24:10}

v Double-minded Heart: There are some people that are also full of doubts; even when the promises of God is so clear and sure they are still double minded about it. "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways." {James 1:8}

v Selfish heart: This category of people with this type of heart always wants to have all the good things of life to themselves and nobody will have it. Some of the symptoms of the category of heart is the urge to keep acquiring, even when you don’t need it.
v Proud heart : People with this heart are usually too proud to accept the truth. When the Holy Spirit is reproofing them through a lower status person, they will feel too ridiculed. Symptom is the sign of arrogance. "Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage{Deut 8:14}

v Obstinate heart: These people will refuse to yields to correction because of this kind of heart. Such people are usually destroyed at the end of the day because there is no counsel to put them to the right way. "But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day" {Deut 2:30}

v Fearful heart : These classes of people are very fearful.  Where they face any situation that is new and not looking pleasant, their heart jumps up in fear; they begin to think of every possible negative that could happened. "The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD{Prov 19:3}

v Heavy heart : When people with this kind of hearth have troubles; they will let it burden them. The heavy heart is not able to give any solution but instead confuse, complicate the issue the more and it is even difficult to pray with this kind of hearth. "As he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, and as vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to an heavy heart." {Prov 25:20}

v Troubled heart :  Problems of life is normal. Being born again does not excuse you from the troubles of life. The bible says that “You shall have tribulation, Rejoice, because He has conquered the word.” The bible also says that; God will deliver you in trouble and not from trouble. When faced with this troubles, the troubled heart is not able to receive this word of God; instead, begins to panic. "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid"{John 14:27}
v Foolish & Darkened heart : A lot of people have been brought down because of the foolishness of their heart; it is such heart that claims that ; God does not exist. Such people’s heart is now darkened that they cannot see the light even when it is obvious. "Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened" {Rom 1:21}
v Deceitful & Mischievous heart: People with such heart are fraudulent and cannot be trusted with any business, their family or any position of integrity. "O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee" {Jer 4:14}
Your need to examine your heart and do a cleanup; because of the deceptive attribute of the heart, one might think all is well. "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?" {2 Cor 13:5}

One of the keys to success in life is to be able to guard your heart.

I pray that, your heart will not take you to hell fire, in Jesus name.
