The Lord Weighs the Heart

All deeds are right in the sight of the doer,
but the Lord weighs the heart.

-Proverbs 21:2

We read Proverbs 21 today and this verse slapped me in the proverbial face! What I think is right doesn’t always mean that it honors God or that I am in “His will.” God is so incredible and amazing that He gives us glimpses of WHO HE IS, but we will never ever “figure Him out” or understand the why and how of His ways. Most importantly, we can count on Him being the final judge of all, the Almighty God… He weighs each of our hearts… He knows our core intentions or reasons for doing the things we do. For me, He has known for a long time the why and how of who I am and why I do the things I do… Only recently is He revealing to me some of the core hurts and effects of those wounds and how they relate to my interaction with others, myself and even God.

He alone is my healer and ONE who knows me through and through and looks at my heart. I seek Him to understand myself further, but more than that I seek Him to know HIM more because HE defines me and tells me who I am. Thank goodness I don’t define myself… I’ve been trying to figure out who I am for over 31 years now and it seems as though I’m finally realizing that the only one who can truly give meaning or definition to a being is the ONE who created that being! Hallelujah! We have a creator who loves us and sustains us, giving our lives meaning!
