#Repost @kaylee_ee There is nothing more deceitful in all of creation than the heart of man because of his inherited sin nature. If we follow our heart, we follow an untrustworthy guide. We are, in fact, blinded to our own heart’s deceitful nature. Determining right from wrong based on “feelings” is a dangerous (and unbiblical) way to live.
The heart is desperately sick. There is no way to fix the heart. Rather, man needs a new heart. That is why, when a person comes to faith in Christ, he is made a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). Jesus does not fix the heart; instead, He replaces it with a new one.
Rather than trust our hearts, we are to commit our hearts to God: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5–6). This passage gives an explicit command not to trust ourselves. And it gives the promise of guidance to those who choose to follow the Lord.
The Bible teaches that “the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want” (Galatians 5:17). #FollowJesus #TrustJesus #Repent #Bible #ReadYourBible #Tukkit #Pray #Truth #Heart #FollowYourHeart #InMyFeelings #WordsOfWisdom #FactsOverFeelings
