Jesus awareness (Part 4)
I was mad, and I was justified. How dare that person wrong my family! As far as I am concerned, we will never talk again!
Recognize that stinky attitude? Do you know what instantly changed it from a hard and prideful stance to a humble one? The Word of God!
For the Word of God is…. sharper than any double-edged sword… it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).
God’s Word is better than a weapon of war, and it’s better than a surgical tool, because it can also judge our thoughts and attitudes. In my case, the Word judged my wrong thinking and found my trust resting in man and not in God. Guilty!
I am so thankful that the Word searched my heart, because I instantly took ownership of my sin. I repented and began walking anew in complete trust in my Provider.
Do you allow the Word of God to search you and see if there’s any offensive way in you (Psalm 139:24)? Trust me, Jesus is faithful with the task. He exposes our wrong attitudes and actions not to condemn us but to free us from their harmful impact. Give your heart to His Word, and watch miracles unfold before your eyes!
Father, thank You for the power of Your Word to search my thoughts and attitudes and to instantly cleanse me of anything unpleasing to You. Show me Your power to do a work of miraculous renewal of my heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
