(Proverbs 23:19 KJV) Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.
Emotion is not supposed to be king in the life of a believer. Notice, we have the power to “guide" (direct NASB) (833) our “heart” (3820). Again and again in the Bible we see the admonition to act. Here it seems to be saying to me that my heart is to be directed, not to be doing the directing. Emotion has a place. Feelings are a a part of life. Neither can we claim to control. Neither are we totally responsible for. Our actions are accountable.
Do I want to get up and go to work today? To late, it is done. Do I want to turn the other cheek and forgive seven times seventy? No, but I don’t have any choice. Well, I do have a choice but I don’t have a choice, if you know what I mean.
We are saved by grace. We are cleansed by the blood. Noted. But also note the repeated times in the Bible where it says that our actions will be looked at by Almighty God.
So? Read, study, choose, act. If necessary, repent. Trust me, it will be necessary. Get back on the horse and get moving again. Direct your heart.
