Greater Than Our Heart

Michael Beck Michael Beck

“The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.” (Proverbs 14:10)

“… God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.” (1 John 3:20)

The greatest mystery in the world is the heart. We know far less about each other than we realize. Whether wisely or unwisely, there are things we all keep to ourselves. But we can keep nothing from God. He knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows the depths of our sorrow and the heights of our joy. We need Him to walk with us through it all. We need to know that He knows and He cares. Only He can make sense of it all.

He is the friend of all friends, who doesn’t need to listen in order to find out what’s going on. He is already out in front of every situation we find ourselves in, and He has the perfect way forward for us. Draw near to Him with all that is in your heart. Deposit all your cares into His hands. Share all of your life with Him. He is a wise Potter who would use all you face to mold you into a beautiful vessel, influenced by His dear presence in your life.
