Is your heart making God smile? I asked myself this question as I reflected on the passage of scripture, which says; “I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 17:10 (NKJV).
We tend to become so consumed with our external looks and actions, sometimes forgetting that none of what we do matters if our hearts are not making God smile. As Christians, we are called to live a life that is pleasing to God by doing His will and obeying His commands. Throughout the Bible, we discover that the Lord knows those that are His. He looks on the inside and reads the heart of a man. The Lord knows the thoughts of man’s mind and the motivation of a man’s heart. God can read the thoughts of our inner mind, and He knows all those who trust His Word, and have their heart turned towards Him.
The heart of Jesus is full of compassion and love. His perfect heart made a way for us to have a clean heart. Let us be reminded that He is the one who evaluates our hearts, weighs our hearts, and judges our hearts. His rewards are solely based on the internal doings of our heart. Let us make a habit of making Him smile!
