Clash of hearts


Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies,
I keep your precepts with all my heart.
Their hearts are callous and unfeeling,
but I delight in your law.
Psalms 119:69-70

Any type of encounter we have with someone who is not a child of God will ultimately end up becoming a battle of hearts and minds. This struggle is a natural outcome of the encounter of two forces that have opposite directions. The heart of him who has not devoted his life to serving God will be driven by the desires of the flesh, the pride of the world and the lies of Satan. It is very possible that this heart has not have realized the dangerous path his life has taken, because among the deceptions of the enemy and his own faulty reasoning he has developed a world view diametrically opposed to God’s plans. These hearts make many mistakes, but generally they are desensitized to failure and have difficulty realizing their sins.

By contrast, the just and merciful heart of God’s children wants to do things right all the time, that is, to act according to the instructions and precepts given by God in his word. This heart knows how sad it is to live separated from God and therefore has repented of his previous conduct. This heart is not interested in seeking his own benefit and for this reason he receives many blessings from God. This heart always puts integrity above any whim or deviant behavior that his sinful nature is telling him to follow. This heart is full of commitment and love and thus he has a special joy that many people do not even imagine may exist. Which of these two types of hearts you want to be yours? Look for Jesus Christ with all your heart and you will find true happiness. Align yourself with the plans of the Master of the Universe. Only to God be the glory!
