TOPIC: Faith and Will
"See to it, brothers and sisters, that none
of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that
turns away from the living God" - Hebrews 3:12.
You are to 'see to it' that you don't have an unbelieving heart. That indicates that a faith-less heart is your decision and under your control not to have one. When you don't take care of your heart and faith, then you turn away from God, and that is fatal where purpose and goals are concerned. This makes perfect sense, for without faith it is impossible to please God. Is your heart full of faith? Do you see un-faith as a sin, or simply a weakness? Do you accept responsibility to keep your heart in good faith condition?
Lord, I don't want to have a heart attack of unbelief. Therefore I choose to trust You, not just for salvation, but for all the affairs of life, including purpose and goals. Help me keep watch over my heart and to know when it is weak in faith, so I can correct that condition immediately by Your grace.
