Walking With a Whole Heart
If you are in trouble today, take heart. There is definitely a way out.
Second Chronicles 6:14 says God shows mercy to those who walk before Him with all their hearts. So, if you’re in trouble today, take an honest look at your relationship with God.
Ask yourself, Am I walking before God with all my heart? Is there any area of my life that I’m withholding from God? Is there any area I want to control and keep for myself?
Let me tell you why that’s important. It’s not that God is holding out on you and begrudging you His deliverance when you aren’t living before Him wholeheartedly like you know you should. But your personal faith level is affected.
If you look at 1 John 3:20-22, you can see what I mean: “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”
You see, it’s not what God knows about you that keeps your prayers from being answered. When you know you’re not living for God and doing what you know to do, it causes you not to have confidence toward Him.
So check your heart today. If you’re following Him with your whole heart, there’s a great and mighty confidence that comes up within you. No devil can shake that confidence. No one can talk you out of it. And no distress—no matter how great—can pressure you into letting go. No matter what happens, you remain certain that God will deliver you!
Speak the Word
I walk before the Lord with all my heart. He keeps His covenant with me and shows me mercy. (2 Chronicles 6:14)
