Believe with your Heart, not your Head

What the Heart Knows

God is not very popular in some quarters and with some crowds today.  It is fashionable to intellectually state that there is no God. This attitude tempts you by saying it is okay, anything goes.

Atheists state that life started with the Big Bang, and that we are related to some primitive beast that slithered from the murky ooze of ocean waters onto the shore.

The Christian knows that God created the Earth and populated it with plants, fish, birds, and animals. He created a garden, breathed life into the first man and made him a helpmate he called woman.

The man and woman showed their sinful natures and free wills when they disobeyed God. He told them to eat from all trees in the garden but commanded them not to eat from the Tree of Good and Evil.

With these two conflicting stories, how do you choose? Your head tells you one thing and your heart tells you another.  When the trauma of living strikes causing distress and anguish, you wonder how your Heavenly Father could let that happen.

The head starts telling you that God is a myth and invites you to hang out with the popular people, the ones who feel superior.  After all, it is just a story, isn’t it? I wish the head believed what the heart knows.

Which will you believe, the heart that knows the truth, or the head telling your heart Satan’s lies? I choose to believe what I know in my heart and ignore the babble of the popular people in the world and the noise in my head.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.  Psalm 139 KJV
