IT'S A MATTER OF THE HEART
1Sam 10:1-9. If you are destined to reign but you don't work on your heart, you won't be able to reign. The heart is what God is looking at and my question to you today is; what is the state of your heart? A futile heart is incapable of producing a great result. With a good heart there is no delay in testimony.
In the above Bible text especially vs 9, it says; "So it was when he (Saul) had turned his back to go from Samuel, that God gave him another heart; and all those signs came to pass that day". God had to touch Saul's heart for him to reign. Notice in that passage, Samuel already anointed Saul to be king with oil but until a change of heart, his reigning was not guaranteed. Also, the moment he got a change of heart, the bible says..."and all those signs came to pass that day".
Friend, the situation of your heart determines what you will have in your hand. If your heart is bad, the journey of life will not be easy- Ex 4:6. When your heart is bad, you will have idols of the heart and idols will prevent you from reigning. Until there is a change of heart like in Ezekiel 11:19 you can't reign. A proud heart can not flow with God- 1Sam 15:10-17. Your God is a God of the humble at heart.
Why not examine your heart today and make a conscious effort to ask God to give you a new heart so that you can reign in life. When you get a new heart, you may be tempted from outside but there is no sin inside. That which is coming from outside will not find an identification inside of your heart. You will be able to stand in times of testing and trials- Gal 5:17.
Cry unto God today; Lord give me a new heart!
