"Follow your heart!"
For so long, this advice has been on the lips of movie stars, parents, gurus and friends. But Jesus and other major leaders in the Bible had different advice.
Ideas about the heart and God appear all throughout the scripture, and one thing seems to be consistent: our heart needs to be protected, purified, and given to God.
The book of Jeremiah says "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?" (Jeremiah 17:9, ESV). In Psalms, we read that we are not to "trust in oppression, And do not vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them." )Psalm 62:10)
Note that Jesus did not say to his disciples, “Let not your hearts be troubled, just believe in your hearts.” He said, “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me” (John 14:1).
Here at Rhema, we believe that the best advice is to follow Jesus, not our hearts. When we do that, the passions and emotions of our hearts are poured out to Him, and purified in the process.
We use Christian Yoga to discover how to do that in our live, and to practice applying that in our lives.
So think twice before you decided to let your heart or your feelings guide you.
It sounds so simple and freeing, but it’s not always the best plan. It’s important to listen to your feelings, but they don’t get to dictate your decisions.
Let the Lord and His values dictate your decisions.
