The Heart is Deceitful and Desperately Wicked

The Heart is Deceitful and Desperately Wicked

By David Smith September 29, 2009

If you could read my mind between Bible verses and the LORD

A heart full of sinful thoughts, as imagination is explored.

To change those thoughts and focus on the Creator and His Word.

Christ is the blessed hope to be reassured.

And to stay on focus; with temptation everywhere.

King David had his thoughts with Bathsheba looking there.

And so we see the hope and the Glorious appearing.

Focus on the light; through prayer and believing.

If you could read my mind between Bible verses and temptation;

Prayer is my only strength; with great anticipation.

The Cross; His finished work, complete, stands alone.

Clothed in His righteousness

His saving grace; to personally own.

    • Jeremiah 17:9 10 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

      • That must be why God said, “a new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and i will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and will give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26

        And why Paul wrote, “if any man have not the spirit of Christ he is none of His.” Romans 8:9

        What great news we can think on these things, “… whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8

        “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23
