"The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly perverse and corrupt and severely, mortally sick! Who can know it [perceive, understand, be acquainted with his own heart and mind]?"
Recently, God has been exposing my heart to myself. And I can attest to the truth of the above verse. We really don't know our own hearts. Which is why God told Moses to make sacrifices for known and unknown sins. I just had no idea I had so many unknown sins. It's ugly, sick and mind-numbing--and hard to face. But that's the good thing about fasting from Facebook---God has had time to point out some things He wants to change. I've found that's usually what God does when I fast--He doesn't necessarily change my circumstances, but my heart.
This past week, God showed me: He's not as concerned about our circumstances as He is our hearts. But He'll use our circumstances to change our hearts.
I love that God not only pursues us with His love--but also with His Truth. He is committed to transforming us and conforming us to the image of His Son. He wants to change our hearts.
