Affirmation of God: My heart is in the hand of the LORD.

Today’s Scripture: The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases. Proverbs 21:1 NIV 

Does the LORD direct and examine your heart? I know He does mine. I prove daily that my only hope in walking in the way of life is through Him. Yes, He weighs my heart and destroys my “self” confidence. 

As I walk along life’s trails He shows me the more I keep my eyes and my heart on Him that this is my only hope to see His beauty. I can not look at the footsteps as they only see the past; I can not look for specific things and find them. Yet, when I can momentarily connect my heart to His then I see those things I long for. 

Here in Proverbs 21 and in my life, He reminds me that the only strength I have is in the LORD. Yes LORD I pour my heart out to You so You can direct it as You will. I know my safety, escape and victory rest in You. 

How is God examining and directing your heart? 

Today’s Prayer: Dear LORD Almighty, in You lies all of my strength. Forgive me for my sins and strengthen me to repent. My heart is in Your hand LORD and I pray You direct it as You will. I confess that I have no power in myself and confess that You are my strength. My victory belongs to You. Amen

    I am reminded of Proverbs 4:23 “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Allowing God to have our heart and keep it, steers our destiny.

    Lord Jesus, may my heart be forever in Your Hand…
    For how else can I approach Your Promised Land?
    My strength is naught, my strength is nothing at all –
    You, Lord, are my strength Who lifts me when I fall.
    Gladly I surrender all of myself, everything, to You:
    For only in surrender do I know Your victory true!
