Pearl 345: The Pattern
Pearl 347: God Has a Plan

Pearl 346: Heart Attack

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.

Today's verse indicates that you are to "see to it" 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, however, then you turn away from God, and that is fatal where your purpose and life goals are concerned. This makes perfect sense, for later in Hebrews we are told that without faith it is impossible to please God. Therefore, faith is non-negotiable where serving and following the Lord are concerned. Is your heart full of faith? Do you see lack of faith as a sin, or simply a weakness? Do you accept responsibility to keep your heart in tip-top 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 my purpose, goals, and creativity. Help me keep watch over my heart so I will  know when it's weak in faith, so then I can correct that condition immediately by Your grace.
