After God's Own Heart


Welcome to the first day of our journey together in this devotional, "After God's Own Heart." I am so glad that you have chosen to embark on this path of self-examination and spiritual growth. This devotional is designed for those who desire a heart truly devoted to God, a heart that seeks His presence and aligns its will to His.


The intention of this devotional is to help us cultivate a heart posture that is sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit, a heart that yearns for the fullness of God's presence in our lives. It is an invitation to dive deeper into the transformative power of God's love and grace, allowing Him to mold and shape us according to His divine purpose.


As we begin, let us remember the words of David in Psalm 139:23-24 (NKJV): "Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting."


This prayer of David is a powerful reminder that our journey towards a heart after God's own heart begins with a willingness to be searched and known by Him. It requires vulnerability and openness to His refining work in our lives.


Today, let us take a moment to reflect on our heart's posture. Are we truly seeking God with all our heart? Are there areas in our lives where we need to realign our will to His? As we meditate on these questions, let us invite the Holy Spirit to reveal any areas that need transformation.


Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV) encourages us: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths."

Trusting in the Lord with all our heart means surrendering our desires, plans, and fears to Him. It means allowing His wisdom and guidance to direct our steps. As we trust Him, we will find that our hearts become more aligned with His, and our desires will increasingly reflect His will.


Reflection Questions: In Proverbs 2, we are reminded of the importance of seeking wisdom and understanding the fear of the LORD. Let's take a moment to reflect on our own heart posture. Please consider the following questions and select the option that best resonates with you:


Do you seek wisdom diligently, as described in Proverbs 2:4-5?


A) Yes, I consistently study and seek wisdom through the Word and prayer.

B) Sometimes, but I find it challenging to stay consistent.

C) Rarely, I struggle to prioritize seeking wisdom.

D) No, I don't actively seek wisdom.


Let us pray together: Heavenly Father, we come before You with open hearts, desiring to be after Your own heart. Search us, know us, and reveal any areas that need transformation. Help us to trust You completely, to lean not on our own understanding, but to acknowledge You in all our ways. Lead us in the way everlasting, and mold our hearts to reflect Your love, grace, and truth. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.


May this devotional journey be a time of profound transformation and deepening intimacy with our Lord. Let us pursue His presence passionately and wholeheartedly, knowing that He is faithful to complete the good work He has begun in us.


With love and blessings,

Joy
