As I was driving to work, the Holy Spirit began to reveal to me that I pray so many times for God to intervene and "help me serve" or "help me do the right thing". These are actions I should be taking.
I realized that the problem was not God's inactivity but my own. The root of the problem is me. I began to change my prayer to "Lord, please fix my heart." If my heart is right then my actions will follow.
I believe that God is more interested in our actions and less interested in our speeches. Does it make sense for my child to ask me to help them do the right thing and for them to sit back and wait for me to take action? No. We are judged by our heart and our actions will follow our heart.
I leave a Bible open on my nightstand, and admittedly, the pages get turned more by it being moved around than read. In my defense this is primarily because I now read the Bible on my phone, but I digress. Last night I just happened to glance at the open Bible and this verse jumped off the page. Proverbs 21:1 "The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes." Wow! This was confirmation that the Lord has my heart in His hand.
Begin to add "Fix my heart" to your prayer-life and I know that God will honor your prayer!
Have a blessed day!
