Jeremiah 17: 9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? 10 “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.” (NIV)
We did an experiment sometime ago. We turned off all the lights in the house, then we grabbed a black bulb and went around the house looking for things the UV light would reveal to us. We were amazed and laughed at all the things we found under a different light. So many things were scary – the laundry room and our teeth, other things lit up such as our clothing, bugs around the house and the kitchen. It was a different experience than the regular light. We found new things that we couldn’t see with our regular white light.
Do you want to know what is really in your heart? Do you really want to know who you really are? Or, are you too scared to find out? Our heart is full of whatever we feed it. Our heart is full of the things we put in it. Let the Lord examine your heart and let the Lord dictate the true condition of your heart. When you read God’s word, you are revealing His light into your darkness, and if you find something scary, change it, and get rid of it.
