Have you known someone who had a heart attack that sent them to the hospital for heart surgery? That’s a traumatic experience, I would imagine.
There’s a different type of heart attack, though. It requires no surgery and no hospital stay.
A spiritual heart attack is one where we suddenly realize our error. The reality that we need to clean up our lives, our sin, becomes apparent during a spiritual heart attack. The weight of our own sin can be devastating.
The Lord is our spiritual heart surgeon.
God allows a way for us to have a relationship with him. Jesus sacrificed His life so that our sins will be forgiven…if we repent of our sin, turn from our sin, and then follow His ways in faith. The remedy for our heart problem is accepting Jesus as Lord.
It’s not forced on us. God’s love is given freely. It’s our choice to accept Him or reject Him.
Lord, I come to you. Let my heart be changed.
God’s Word is our guide, our perfect instruction book. It’s not a book of don’ts. It’s a book of freedom. I wish everyone would read it!
Once your heart surgery is sewn up and complete, your new desire to follow the Lord’s instruction manual will bless you. Your new revelation will be one of freedom within God’s plan and order He set for our world.
His design is perfect. He is perfect.
Giving your heart to Him will be an amazing journey. No promises for an easy life, but for a life with your Lord holding your heart in His hands.
He loves you!
Let’s worship Him, our most holy heart surgeon, our redeemer, our Lord! It’s a spectacular Lord’s day!
