HOW’S YOUR HEART
WHEN YOUR HEART IS BREAKING
THE APRIL FOOL’S HEART
Psalm 14; Psalm 53
WHEN YOU’RE HAVING HEART TROUBLE
If you were to read Psalms 22-25 in order, you would find the Psalmist in 4 postures:
In Psalm 22 – He is lying down, on his face crying out, “My God, why have You forsaken me?”
In Psalm 23 – He is walking with the Lord as his Shepherd.
In Psalm 24 – He is sitting and meditating on the greatness of God.
In Psalm 25 – He is kneeling before the Lord seeking God’s mercy in times of trouble.
WHEN YOUR HEART SKIPS A BEAT
IS YOUR HEART COMMITTED? Part 1
When you are angry you can respond in one of four ways:
CLEARING UP HEART CLOTS
v. 10 – “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
Four times in the Psalms David uses the word “spirit” v. 10, 11, 12, 17
A Nation of Victims, author Charles Sykes wrote of America as a nation with an irresistible search for someone or something to blame colliding with the unmovable unwillingness to accept responsibility.
Against Thee and Thee only have I sinned and done what is evil in Your sight -Until you can say it – and mean it – your heart will continue, to have clots that can one day break loose and destroy you.
THE HEART THAT NEVER SKIPS A BEAT
Psalm 57; I Samuel 23 & 24
A SMART HEART
The smart hearted person understands life from an eternal perspective. They view life in light of creation, fall, salvation, and coming glory. They then live their lives in light of these truths and number their days accordingly.
If you were to die today, would the Lord confirm the work of your hands? Would you have spent your life wisely, serving the Lord or foolishly serving yourself? Would God call you, right now, based on your choices and priorities, a smart hearted person?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU HAD YOUR LIFE TO LIVE OVER?
Why aren’t you doing something about that right now?
