Happy Monday and welcome back to this weeks edition of the JOSHUA CODE.
Here is this weeks verses:
w e e k - t w e n t y s i x
" For the LORD does not see as man sees;
for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
1 s a m u e l 1 6 : 7
. . .
THE HEART IS OUR INTELLECT
"Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the
thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." (Genesis 6:5)
THE HEART IS OUR EMOTIONS
"[The LORD] was grieved in His heart.'"(Genesis 6:6)
THE HEART IS OUR VOLITION
"Then the LORD said in His heart, 'I will'." (Genesis 8:21)
It is God Himself, at our conversation, who takes that old heart of ours and give us one that is brand-new. For He said, "I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the LORD; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart." (Jeremiah 24:7)
'As you memorize this verse, meditate on the truth, that while man may look on the outward appearance, God is looking upon our hearts. He is mindful of our thoughts, our emotions, and our will. Today is a good time to 'return to the LORD with all your hearts' (1 Samuel 7:3). And that is the real heart of the matter'.
