The Heart is Deceitful

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?

Jeremiah 17:9

It has become fashionable to say that we follow what our heart tells us. However, the Bible warns us that our heart is deceitful. So following our heart can lead to a deadly trap. Another thing that says Jeremiah 17:9 is that the heart is wicked. Certainly inside humans usually machined the worst intrigues, lust and the most heinous crimes.

I have known many cases of people who have set their sights on the wrong person. Sometimes people have looked at a bad feelings person who abuses of them. Sometimes they cling to a man or a woman who already has a commitment to someone else. In the first situation the result is a relationship that falls on domestic violence. In the second case, it inevitably comes to adultery. Those involved in both cases say they feel powerless to leave such a relationship because they have followed the voice of their heart and say that no one can fight the feelings.

I believe the Bible is very clear on this. If you follow the dictates of a deceitful and wicked heart, you will become a slave to sin. Do not let this happen. Rather, delivering your situation, your relationship who truly knows your heart, this is your Creator. He will give you the correct answer and show you the way to go. As warns Proverbs 3:7: Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil.

As usual, I say that I do not intend to give lessons or tell you that I followed to the letter what I am discussing. Rather like I can say I have often followed what my heart and I paid dearly for the consequences. I’ll tell you something. When I was about to graduate as a chemical engineer, department director called me into his office and asked me if I was willing to be sent by the university to study a master’s degree at a prestigious American university. The compromise was that I should stay at least two years as a professor in the department.

I heard my teacher’s proposal, but I declined the offer citing that I preferred to work in the industry instead of becoming a university professor. The truth is that I was not taking a decision based on an analysis of what really suited to long-term, but I was being led by a loving heart that did not want to get away from the person he loved. The result was that I was as the saying the adage, without the rope without the goat, all to follow a deceitful and wicked heart.

f at this time you read or hear this message are with the dilemma of deciding, I think that instead of listening to the voice of your heart, pay attention to the voice of your Heavenly Father. He knows what is best for you and will never lead to a way that harms you. Not take into account what they say feelings which are today and are gone tomorrow. Remember that your Father is wiser than you. God bless you.
