When the world hears the word “heart”, we almost always think about the organ that pumps blood throughout our bodies. It is fitting that one would think of the word this way since that is what we are all taught from a young age. We associate love with the word as well and when love does not go the way we think that it should, we say we have a broken heart. The fact is that the organ we have in us is still pumping blood so it can’t be this heart that is broke! In the living word of Yahweh (God), we have so much truth and teaching that can help us make since of life. One great example is the true meaning of the word “heart”!
17- The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
The inner soul of mankind is the conduit in which our spirit meets the physical. The fallen state that this world is in causes us to have broken things happen. This is all due to the fall of mankind that happened in the Garden of Eden. The living God knows that brokenness will happen due to the state we are in, but He also has made a way back to Himself as well. Our real hearts are the inner person that is within each one of us. We can spend lifetimes searching for the things that will fill our inner beings but fall short if we lack meeting our creator. Jesus the Christ (anointed one) gave his life as the payment for all mankind’s sins, and this is the most real thing anyone can ever feed their hearts! It is because of this truth that we can believe and receive the full heart we all long to have. I was just married again thanks to the hand of God in my life! Both my wife and I know that because we love God and His Son Jesus first and foremost, it is in this that makes us complete. This allows us to be heathy in our love for one another because we know that it is God’s love that completes us and it was the payment of Jesus’s blood on that cross that makes it all come to true completion.
2 My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Understanding who Jesus really is and why Jesus did what he did for us is the key to all life’s problems. You can choose to deny this or ignore this, but you will never change the fact that this is true. Jesus has a heart for us all but not everyone will have a heart for Jesus. The main reason that this happens is because people do not truly understand the truth of Jesus. Many people have heard about him and things he may have done, but they never truly get to know him. It is amazing that we can spend so much time feeding ourselves junk and searching out all the wrong things. We will go to extra lengths to feed our desires of money, fame, or being accepted into some cool crowd, but yet be miserable the whole time.
People that come along speaking truth in God’s word or speaking of Jesus the son of God can seem so happy and out of this world but yet we will make fun of them like they are the crazy ones. We become so comfortable in the lies that we have accepted in our lives, yet we will flat out fight tooth and nail to keep people from seeing how broken we really are inside. Our inner heart gets smashed usually at very young ages and then we spend the rest of our lives hiding this or adding more lies to the damage already done. Surrender in our culture is painted to be some act of weakness. In reality when we choose to surrender to the true heart of what Jesus did for us, we are given true strength. I see it week after week when men are delivered from addictions of drugs, porn, alcohol, anger, and so much more. There is the heart of problems that stand for something totally different than the heart of mankind! The heart of the sea is not the heart of mankind! Do you see what I mean?
25 “The ships of Tarshish were the carriers for your merchandise.
And you were filled and were very glorious
In the heart of the seas.
26 “Your rowers have brought you
Into great waters;
The east wind has broken you
In the heart of the seas.
There can be many different ways we use the word heart, but it will all be pointless if we do not understand the real heart of our lives. The inner person can be beaten and abused by many things in life, but the fact is that the one who created you, Yahweh (God), He has allowed all things to be made new through His Christ Jesus. This is why the name of Jesus is hated by the mainstream in our world because the lies, of evil has a hold on the culture. We have allowed the heart of America to be perverted by the lies of fortune and fame only to make idols out of people and money. The real issue in our world today is not the fact that evil is present, it is that people who claim to be holy do nothing in the face of the evil. The heart of the problem is not in the world, the heart of the problem is in the human heart. Now more than ever we need the truth of Jesus. We need the to have a heart for the people around us and do our best to seek the will of the Father in heaven just like Jesus did. Jesus does sit patiently at the right hand of the Father waiting to come get his bride. We who love Jesus are his hands and feet and even when World War 3 starts to overflow into more military action all over the world, we can rest assure that the same truth and peace will remain in the truth of the Christ! The anointed one of God is the reason why we see what we see in the evil world as well. The enemy of God is the fallen angels who are going to be cast into the lake of fire soon and they want to drag as many of you as possible so if you would like to know the real meaning of your heart, then trust in the heart of the one who gave himself for you! Jesus is real and alive, and he really does have a heart for you! May Yahweh Bless you and His Christ guide your steps in the days ahead!
9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God (Yahweh) raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
