The heart is where we feel emotions, but it is also involved our mind, our thoughts and our conscience and our will. In other words, the heart is involved in everything that is going on inside of us.
Everyone that we read of in the bible that God used to do his work, weren’t perfect. In fact, just like us, they had weaknesses and made mistakes. However that didn’t stop God giving them important work to do for him, because He saw that their hearts were turned to Him.
Even hell itself holds no secrets from the Lord God,Proverbs 15:11 (The Passion Translation)
for all is exposed before his eyes,
and so much more the heart of every human being.
It’s not how perfect or imperfect we are, or how many mistakes we make or how great our actions are that determine our worth to God, instead it’s our heart that matters!
Give your people what their actions deserve, for you alone know each human heart.1 Kings 8:39 (NLT)
