It's All Grace

Amazing things can happen when you allow the Lord to work in your life.

Train Wreck

The world is telling you to “follow your heart – if it feels good do it”.  However, the WORD tells you to guard your heart.  We are to LEAD our heart, not FOLLOW it!

If your goal in life is purity then don’t allow your heart to jump on a train that’s headed for a train wreck!  Where your heart leads, the rest of your body WILL follow in due time.  Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above ALL things, and desperately wicked:  who can know it?”

Listen to the one’s who love you.  Listen to the godly authorities that have been placed into your lives.  Those that are encouraging you to do wrong, are only thinking of themselves.  No one wants to fail alone.  Any boy or girl whose ever said these words, “If you loved me, you would . . . . . . ” are using YOU to meet THEIR needs.  This is selfish and not love.

The Bible clearly states in 1 Corinthians 13 what love IS:  kind, long suffering, it does not envy, it is not puffed up, does not behave unseemly, does not seek its own, it is not easily provoked, and thinketh no evil.  Hmmm . . . this is a much different picture of love than what the world calls love.

A TRUE friend will tell you what you don’t want to hear because they LOVE you.   Proverbs 27:5-6 says, “Open rebuke is better than secret love.  Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”

Before you leave the train station (with your heart) and get on the train, you need a plan.  Know what your ticket will cost you, where you are going & where you will get off, the history and track record behind the train, and what is the goal of your trip.  Know your boundaries on the train:  where you will ride, who will you be seated next to, how will you allow yourself to be swayed and influenced, and where you draw the line.

Is there a train wreck ahead for you?  Will you seek God’s Word on leading your heart?
