Don’t trust your heart.
The heart is more deceitful than anything else, and incurable—who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9
The world tells us to trust our heart but the heart is a very unreliable guide. Up one day, down another- the heart is nothing but deceitful. In fact, this verse says that the heart is more deceitful than anything else. It lies to us because it is sinful in its tendencies. The heart is also incurable, it can only be healed from the forceful voice of the flesh through the Word. God needs to be our guide because He alone can be trusted. Your heart will only lead you astray. Each day, we shouldn’t listen to the counsel of our heart but should submit our heart to the faithful counsel of the Bible. The Word alone can be trusted.
