Encounter God’s Heart… Listen to Yourself

Matthew 15:18
The Passion Translation

“But what comes out of your mouth reveals the core of your heart.”

If we ever want to know what’s stirring in our hearts, all we have to do is listen to what’s coming out of our mouths. What we say, especially during times of stress or when we feel comfortable enough to open up to someone, reveals our truest beliefs. Our words unveil our fears and doubts. Anger and tears are more than moments of venting; they point to areas that need the healing touch of Jesus and the truth of his Word. Even sarcasm can indicate a place of wounding.

Don’t mask your true feelings. Listen to your heart and tend to your soul. Being honest about what’s going on inside of you and taking steps to find freedom is vital. Invite Jesus into every area of your life and hold nothing back. He’s able to strip away what doesn’t agree with the truth when you don’t hide from your areas of frailty, unbelief, and pain.

Jesus, shine your spotlight into the deepest wells of my soul. Help me to pay attention to the places that need the cleansing fire of your love. I want every area of my life to radiate with truth and wholeness. Heal me. Speak to me. Saturate every fiber of my being with your truth.
