Just Trust Your Heart─NOT
by Dr. Dan Sharp, Minister of Worship
How often have you heard the phrase “Just trust your heart and go with it”? Sounds good; bad advice. The Scripture says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, who can know it?” The problem lies in the fact that sin is clever. Sin functions better undetected. Using our heart as our guide will lead us astray every time because our faults that are hidden from our own view.
In Psalm 19 David asked God to cleanse him from his hidden faults and to keep him from deliberate sin. He did not want to be controlled by his undetected sin. The result would be that he wouldn’t live with heavy guilt. God is faithful and will reveal our hidden sins when we ask. Today, trust your Father in heaven, not your heart on earth!
