The Reflections of the Heart



Proverbs 16:1,2 is stated this way in the Amplified Bible:

THE PLANS of the mind and orderly thinking belong to man, but from the Lord comes the [wise] answer of the tongue.

    All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits (the thoughts and intents of the heart).

I seem to think a lot.

But, really, can I possibly think more than anyone else?

Aren’t we all constantly thinking?

I suppose what we each individually dwell on when we are alone in our thoughts can infinitely vary.

It might be more accurate for me to say that I think about situations and turn them over in my mind quite a bit.

If I am praying about something and asking God for wisdom, then I am seeking what is true and right. Sometimes, what I may think, however–my own human reflections about things—may be flawed.

Logic and reason may be occupying a high standing in my thoughts. They may offer what seems right at the time, yet they may not be in agreement with God’s will.

Asking for His guidance and waiting for His answer are of paramount importance.

I can trust God.

Sometimes I cannot trust myself.

    All three of these endeavors are honorable and you would have every reason to feel that you were performing a worthy service by delivering medicine, warning the public of severe weather or rescuing swimmers from drowning.
