Can you postulate what’s in my mind? The heart is deceptive and beyond remedy, who can perceive it?
That is why it’s very important to keep our heart away from all evil and
only make it flow with goodness, because a heart that flows with goodness
shall dwell in peace all the days of life. We should make our heart to be clean
and renew it with the right spirit because a human lies within himself
for example: when you meet a person for the first time, normally you ought to predict the person
character and behaviour from first sight through the appearance
but it isn’t like that because the person you want to see
is within and not the appearance. What’s On Your Mind? Through these many destinies has been ruined,
people use the appearance of a person to judge them
which shouldn’t be like that because a human lies within himself,
it is only the human heart that says something different from what the mouth says,
Jesus said in Luke 6:45: A good man out of the good treasure of his heart
bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil
treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil:
for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh (KJV).
What’s On Your Mind: what’s within us is deceitful, its appearance can look so nice and friendly
but what’s within is extremely immoral, the appearance of a person doesn’t
determine What’s On Your Mind.
Let me tell you a real life story
there’s a man who has a wife and a two year old boy,
one day, they started fighting and arguing in the middle of the night.
All the neighbors heard them fighting but it was too late to come out all of a sudden
when it some hours before day break, their apartment caught fire.
The neighbors said that they don’t know what happened all that they know is that
before the fire out break they were arguing,
before the day break they found out that their apartment had caught fire.
When they got there, they met only the wife, but half of her body was burnt and
she said it was her husband who set the house on fire after she slept,
they took her to the hospital but she couldn’t make it, so she gave up a ghost.
What’s On Your Mind? What should we say about this? Do you see now that a human is within?
The heart is deceptive and beyond remedy, who can perceive it?
God said in 1 Samuel 16:7:But the LORD said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth;
for man looketh on the outward appearance,
but the LORD looketh on the heart(KJV). Can you postulate what’s in my mind? If it isn’t for the fact that the heart is deep
Won’t we be able know who loves us and who dislike us?
Look at the story of Cain and Abel:
Cain and Abel they came out the same womb, but despite that Cain killed his younger brother
out of jealous rage just because The Lord respected Abel’s sacrifice
and not his in Genesis 4:1–16(KJV). Can you postulate what’s in a human mind?
No we can’t because the heart of a human is from within,
Jesus said in Mark 7:21-23:For from within, out of the heart of men,
proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye,
blasphemy, pride, foolishness:All these evil things
come from within, and defile the man (KJV).
Can you postulate what’s in my mind? God created humans and regretted it because he saw that humanity
has become evil, every thought in a human mind is completely evil
and He is heartbroken by that. What does God want from us in return
for creating us? He wants us to serve him with a pure heart
and He wants us to love one another as we love ourselves.
What’s On Your Mind? We should live a good and God-fearing life,
the heart of the wicked always receives evil
a snail that crawls slowly and peace it still end up dead
talkless of a lizard that always hits its head on the wall.
There’s nothing evil can do for a heart except to destroy it,
if your fellow human is uplifted, rejoice for your own to come,
love your fellow human as yourself, remember that the
Owner of goods can always dispose of Him, live a righteous life and obey God. What’s On Your Mind?
Let’s look at the story of Ben-hadad’s wars with Ahab:
And Benhadad the king of Syria gathered all his host together: there were thirty-two o kings with him, horses, chariots;
he went up and besieged Samaria, and warred against it. And he sent messengers to Ahab king of Israel into the city, and said unto him,
Thus saith Benhadad, Thy silver and thy gold is mine; thy wives also and thy children, even the goodliest, are mine.
And the king of Israel answered and said, My lord, O king, according to thy saying, I am thine, and all that I have. And the messengers came again, and said,
Thus speaketh Benhadad, saying, Although I have sent unto thee, saying, Thou shalt deliver me thy silver, and thy gold, and thy wives, and thy children;
Yet I will send my servants unto thee to morrow about this time, and they shall search thine house, and the houses of thy servants;
What’s On Your Mind?: and it shall be, that whatsoever is pleasant in thine eyes, they shall put it in their hand, and take it away. Then the king of Israel called all the elders of the land,
and said, Mark, I pray you, and see how this man seeketh mischief: for he sent unto me for my wives, for my children, and for my silver, and for my gold;
and I denied him not, and all the elders and all the people said unto him, Hearken not unto him, nor consent. Wherefore he said unto the messengers of Benhadad,
Tell my lord the king, All that thou didst send for to thy servant at the first I will do: but this thing I may not do. And the messengers departed, and brought him word again. And
Benhadad sent unto him, and said, The gods do so unto me, and more also, if the dust of Samaria shall suffice for handfuls for all the people that follow me.
The king of Israel answered and said, Tell him, Let not him that girdeth on his harness boast himself as he that putteth it off; it came to pass, when Ben-hadad heard this message,
as he was drinking, he and the kings in the pavilions, that he said unto his servants, Set yourselves in array. And they set themselves in array against the city.
And, behold, there came a prophet unto Ahab king of Israel, saying, Thus saith the Lord, Hast thou seen all this great multitude? behold, I will deliver it into thine hand this day;
What’s On Your Mind?: and thou shalt know that I am the Lord. and Ahab said, By whom? And he said, Thus saith the Lord, Even by the young men of the princes of the provinces.
Then he said, Who shall order the battle? And he answered, Thou. Then he numbered the young men of the princes of the provinces,they were two hundred and thirty two:
and after them he numbered all the people, even all the children of Israel, being seven thousand. And they went out at noon. But Benhadad was drinking himself drunk in the pavilions,
he and the kings, the thirty two kings that helped him, And the young men of the princes of the provinces went out first; and Benhadad sent out,
and they told him, saying, There are men come out of Samaria, and he said, Whether they be come out for peace, take them alive; or whether they be come out for war,
take them alive. So these young men of the princes of the provinces came out of the city, and the army which followed them. And they slew every one his man:
and the Syrians fled, and Israel pursued them: and Benhadad the king of Syria escaped on an horse with the horsemen. The king of Israel went out, and smote
the horses and chariots, and slew the Syrians with a great slaughter. And the prophet came to the king of Israel, and said unto him, Go, strengthen thyself, and mark,
see what thou doest: for at the return of the year the king of Syria will come up against thee. And the servants of the king of Syria said unto him,
Their gods are gods of the hills; therefore they were stronger than we; but let us fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they.
And do this thing, Take the kings away, every man out of his place, and put captains in their rooms: And number thee an army, like the army that thou hast lost,
horse for horse, and chariot for chariot: and we will fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they. And he hearkened unto their voice, and
did so. And it came to pass at the return of the year, that Benhadad numbered the Syrians, and went up to Aphek, to fight against Israel. And
the children of Israel were numbered, and were all present, and went against them: and the children of Israel pitched before them like two little flocks of kids;
but the Syrians filled the country. And there came a man of God, and spake unto the king of Israel, and said, Thus saith the Lord, Because the Syrians have said,
The Lord is God of the hills, but he is not God of the valleys, therefore will I deliver all this great multitude into thine hand, and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
And they pitched one over against the other seven days. And so it was, that in the seventh day the battle was joined: and the children of Israel slew of the Syrians an hundred
thousand footmen in one day. But the rest fled to Aphek, into the city; and there a wall fell upon twenty and seven thousand of the men that were left.And
Benhadad fled, and came into the city, into an inner chamber. And his servants said unto him, Behold now, we have heard that the kings of the house of Israel are merciful kings:
let us, I pray thee, put sackcloth on our loins, and ropes upon our heads, and go out to the king of Israel: peradventure he will save thy life.
So they girded sackcloth on their loins, and put ropes on their heads, and came to the king of Israel, and said, Thy servant Benhadad saith, I pray thee,
let me live. And he said, Is he yet alive? he is my brother. Now the men did diligently observe whether any thing would come from him, and did hastily catch it:
and they said, Thy brother Benhadad. Then he said, Go ye, bring him. Then Benhadad came forth to him; and he caused him to come up into the chariot. And Ben-hadad said unto him,
The cities, which my father took from thy father, I will restore; and thou shalt make streets for thee in Damascus,
as my father made in Samaria. Then said Ahab, I will send thee away with this covenant. So he made a covenant with him, and sent him away.
And a certain man of the sons of the prophets said unto his neighbour in the word of the Lord, Smite me, I pray thee. And the man refused to smite him.
Then said he unto him, Because thou hast not obeyed the voice of the Lord, behold, as soon as thou art departed from me, a lion shall slay thee.
And as soon as he was departed from him, a lion found him, and slew him. Then he found another man, and said, Smite me, I pray thee. And the man smote him,
so that in smiting he wounded him. So the prophet departed, and waited for the king by the way, and disguised himself with ashes upon his face.
And as the king passed by, he cried unto the king: and he said, Thy servant went out into the midst of the battle; and, behold, a man turned aside, and brought a man unto me, and said,
Keep this man: if by any means he be missing, then shall thy life be for his life, or else thou shalt pay a talent of silver. And as thy servant was busy here and there,
he was gone. And the king of Israel said unto him, So shall thy judgment be; thyself hast decided it. And he hasted, and took the ashes away from his face; and
the king of Israel discerned him that he was of the prophets. And he said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Because thou hast let go out of thy hand a man whom I
appointed to utter destruction, therefore thy life shall go for his life, and thy people for his people. And the king of Israel went to his house heavy and displeased, and came to Samaria in 1 Kings 20(KJV).
Whoever obeys the Lord, God will put his enemy at his foot, what’s on your mind to your brother or sister? You as a boss, what’s on your mind to your worker?
You as a leader, what’s your mind to your followers? Is it good or bad? If it is good, good shall be yours, but if it evil be warned for it always returns.
Jesus says in Matthew 7:12:Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets (KJV).
