So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, – 2 Cor 4:16-17 ESV
Per Ed Bulkley, in his book, ‘Why Christians Can’t Trust Psychology’, the Scriptures use at least four terms to describe the immaterial part of man: the heart, soul, spirit, and mind. The descriptions and functions of these aspects of man seem to overlap. We must know how words are being used to get the full impact of what is being said! We all have a Mental Process-where action & reaction take place-which is to lead a person in their life. We have EMOTIONS-which only process as reaction- it is DESERT, to enrich our lives- make it taste better! Then there is WILL- discretionary, volitional, decision-making- where decisions are made between the rational and the emotive.
Leader, the Biblical word “heart,” is the inner aspect of a man, made of three parts all together. We must be WILLING to daily focus our HEART on the LORD and HIS calling for our life and we transform our thinking- our MIND. Do you have a heart for the LORD, is your MIND totally focused on God and His Will, His Word? Do you long for His return with all your HEART, BODY and SOUL?
Conduit, today, tomorrow and the next: You shall love the LORD your God with all your HEART and with all your SOUL and with all your MIGHT- 100%. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart! Your heart is the center of your character – who you really are and what you really WANT! Get your HEART ON!
