Christ Speaking to Our Hearts Devotional (Words from the Lord Series)

Child, I would speak to your heart. You are Mine. I’m recreating in you the mind of Christ – it doesn’t happen in a day. Yield – keep on yielding. Absorb yourself in the Word. My discipline shall become your joy. Your completeness, your delight as you begin to walk therein. Worry not nor buzz about – I AM the ways and means provider. Rest in my soliloquy and be refreshed. There is a purpose – enjoy my presence and fret not. I am preparing you for greater things in Jesus, your heart needs to be whole, not fractured. There is mending time so rest in My arms as I recreate a clean, whole heart in you, my child, my Bride, my delight. Please Selah (Pause and calmly think about that)

Soliloquy = act of talking to oneself, a discourse made by oneself in solitude to oneself, monologue. (I had to look it up! High School English was a long way back….)

Prayer: Dear Jesus, I DO enjoy your presence. Please keep drawing me closer and closer to you. Clean my closets – in your perfect love and timing – throw out that which no longer belongs. Create in me a new heart and renew a right spirit within me! AMEN

Why do we have such a difficult time being quiet? Is it that we think we have so much to say that is so important? Why does is become a problem to sit at the feet of the Creator of the Universe and learn from Him? I think this might be what is meant by “cares of this world”. We cannot allow the washing machine, doing dishes, TV, the telephone ringing or clamoring family to take priority over quality time spent in the Word and with our Lord, can we?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. (NIV)

I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. (NIV)

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. (NIV)

a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak……..(NIV)
