What’s in your heart today?

God knows your heart

God: knows how to romance and engage our minds; waits to see our heart….

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God”.

As a believer we tend to sometimes just get caught up in the moment of giving our lives to God, accepting Jesus as our personal Savior and being in a local assembly. For some of us, we catch a fire or the quickening of the Holy Spirit and we get to thinking that’s it: that’s the fire, this is the move they experienced in the NT.

You feel as if you can cast out demons, deliver the sick, move any of the top three tallest mountains in the world; part the largest ocean in existence. I mean you feel really powerful and you go on for a period. I am thinking, for many in this phase, it might last a little longer than one year.

Then the quickening quiets and if you went past the stage of the quickening and entered the phase where the Holy Spirit was courting you a little deeper than the casual Christian, as a result of you having serious fathers and mothers of the faith who know how to get deep into the threshing floor and call your name in the midnight hours or because of a calling on your life, this is the point where you need to start pushing in the spirit.

But unfortunately, without the encouragement and deep push which is needed to grab a hold of the deep things in the spirit realm and desire the things of God, many Christians falter at this point and as I have heard many state, “they used to” becomes one of their famous phrases as you speak with them. They used to have this experience, they used to do this for God, and they used to become their spiritual anthem (which is faulty as it was the Spirit who was doing all along)…

But for those who overcame and caught a wind in the spirit realm, they will know and testify that at this point is where the Spirit of God pulled back, to see what was in your mind, when you got a bit of the quickening; what are you like; how diligent are you to me; if I don’t push you, will you still pray; will you still worship; will you still seek me at night; will you still spend time at the altar trying to get my attention? Will you, will you, will you?

Sadly, many cease feeling the quickening and they cease all the above actions of seeking and this behavior my friend, prolongs the time to get into that season of what God has for you. Scripture never lies and if only you had been that more desperate and persistent you would have understood that the “things” which God has for us, has already been deposited with the Holy Spirit which He will bestow upon us at the right time, if we faint not: “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God”.

This covenant; this vow you made with Jesus when you said “I Do” to him ought to be a lifetime contract and if God becomes silent, it’s not time to quit and give up and start lingering on yesterday’s main course, but to get your knees dirty and bruised and run, crawl after Him.

Did you not know that the courtship really starts with God after the marriage? As He told the Israelites in the wilderness, Hezekiah, Job and some of those giants who walked before us: He wants to know what is in your heart…

    Aww my heart melted as I read this blog…
    Thanks @VW. …love when Love gives assurance through Spirit.

  2. There is a poem in there “Will You!” Blessings, James

  3. Consider the whole armor of God, Ephesians 6:11-16. The last garment of that armor is just as important, and more, than the others, “praying, always..”

      I agree 100%; this is the oil, the anointing, the seal. without prayer we aren’t doing anything. Nothing can happen on earth without prayers. May God open our hearts to this revelation. vw

    My heart was melted by this… I wept, I laid my heart even more bare before the Lord. I am at that courting stage and it is so amazing and also so blinding. Thank you for writing this…
