With All Your Heart

If home is where you heart is, where is your home?

Is it where your heart dwells, or where your expectation lies? Do you flee from evil to arrive home, or do you dwell in peace–never to roam?

Your body is home for your spirit, does it dwell in a peaceful setting? If your members are at war within yourself, there is therefore no rest for your spirit. If your thoughts do not agree with your spirit, are you not at war within?

“For I delight in the law of God, in my inmost self, but I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin which dwells in my members.” Romans 7:22-23

Peace, be still, and know that I AM God

“Be still, and know that I am God, I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!” “The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.” Psalms 46:10-11

Are not My thoughts higher than yours?

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9

I will lead you to a safe harbor–a place of rest and peace, but this will not be until you release your cares unto Me and make the commitment to follow one path–Me.

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you.” I Peter 5:6-7

Can anyone walk two paths at once?

If you are split and divided, will you not stay in one spot? There are only two kingdoms. Make a choice, and follow with all of your heart!

“Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, ‘ Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.'” Matthew 12:25

“‘He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.'” Matthew 12:30

“‘Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree bad, and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.'” Matthew 12:33

“–‘For out of the abundance of the mouth the heart speaks. The good man out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil. I tell you, on the day of judgment men will render account for every careless word they utter; for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.'” Matthew 12:34b-37

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want; he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.” Psalms 23:1-3a

“Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord.” Isaiah 55:6-8

“For you shall go out in joy, and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:12
