Heart Motives

A motive in the human heart is like deep water, and a person who has understanding draws it out. Who can say, “I’ve made my heart pure. I’m cleansed from my sin”? Do not say, “I’ll get even with you! ”Wait for the Lord, and he will save you. The Lord is the one who directs a person’s steps. How then can anyone understand his own way? A person’s soul is the Lord’s lamp. It searches his entire innermost being. (Proverbs 20:5, 9, 22, 24, 27 GWT)

Self-deception is powerful and difficult to overcome. Honesty with God leads to honesty within our self. God’s Word, honest prayer, genuine worship, and true fellowship lead us into the light that frees the heart. ©tkbeyonddevo
