Key Words: What was in thine heart
We’ve all heard the credit card commercial, “What’s in your wallet?” But the real question is, “What’s in your heart?” God had let Israel wander in the wilderness for forty years to humble them, prove them, and to find out what was in their hearts.
Whenever a teacher in school gave you a test, they never had much to say during the test. Things were silent during the test. The teacher had nothing to say because the test was designed to show what you knew based on what the teacher had already taught you.
Once you get a test, you might not hear much from God. He may be silent. Knowing this, it would be wise for you to have a lot of conversations with Him before He administers the test!
Some people have problems passing their tests. In fact, they keep failing. They quit school. We have a lot of dropouts in Christianity today because people either get discouraged due to not passing the test or get weary of constantly going through them.
Academic tests prove what you have mentally. Spiritual tests prove what you’re made of spiritually and emotionally. So let me ask, “What’s in your heart?”
What to do:
✞ Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.
