Good morning! Dear Lord You KNOW our hearts. Yet You still love us. This morning we read the uncertainty people faced and confusion on what to do as You freely offered Your salvation to ALL who would receive it. It was stated in verses 8 and 9:
God knows people’s hearts, and He confirmed that He accepts Gentiles by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as He did to us. He made no distinction between us and them, for He cleansed their hearts through faith.
This wasn't a last minute decison, this was Your plan from the get go. Thank You! Lord, it can be an uneasy feeling to think of You knowing our hearts. With the thoughts, feelings and motives not always being where we think they should be, based on what You share with us regarding Your character. But You love us and You give us Your Holy Spirit to depend on as we become more like You.
Lord, I pray at some point today we take the time to write down all we believe is not You, and give it to You. I then ask that Your Holy Spirit would begin to prune those areas away and allow Your life to replace them. Thank You for Your goodness! In Jesus' Name, amen ❤
