Jeremiah 17:10 “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”
It’s like the Marine Corps motto; “Looking for a few good men”, God is looking for good men and women with hearts to follow Him. A few verses before this one God talks about how terrible it is that some people decide to put their trust in men instead of relying on God. He wants our trust and he wants our hearts and minds! If we would just fully give Him our hearts and minds every day when we get out of bed to allow Him to have full rule and reign in our thoughts and actions we would go so much further for Him!
Notice this verse says, EVERY man (or woman) God watches all! He is not just sitting up there passive not caring about what is going on in your life. There is a reason the Bible declares we will answer for every idle word. God pays attention to every detail of your life, He knows when you are hurting, frustrated, happy, angry etc., and He is looking for ways to guide you and bless you. It is time to give it all to Him and allow Him to move in your heart and mind. Another one of my favorite verses is Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” I need to have that prayer on my lips every day!
Take inventory today and ask God to show you any areas you may need to work on then ask Him to cleanse your heart and give you a right spirit and the strength to do what is right. Refresh your walk with God today and live your life to the fullest, day by day in a way that is pleasing to HIm. Today is a new day with no mistakes in it.
