The State of your Heart

The State of your Heart

Apostle Grace Lubega

Acts 8:18-21 (KJV); And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. 

Before God ever trusts you with great responsibility, He first fashions a character of the Spirit in you.

This is why your heart is the first thing that you give to God.

Simon the sorcerer’s problem was the state of his heart.

When his heart was weighed he was found to have a gall of bitterness and as such, he had no part nor lot in what he sought to partake.

The gall of bitterness brings an eagerness to access the things of the Spirit without understanding the responsibility that comes with those things.

Why are you asking God for a healing anointing? Is it so you can walk about as a proud man who knows that he can heal the sick? Why are you believing for a big ministry? Is it so you surround yourself with guards and slaves like the powers of this present world?

If your heart is not right before God, then you do not have any part nor lot in the ministry.

GOLDEN NUGGET

If your heart is not right before God, then you do not have any part nor lot in the ministry.

PRAYER: Father, like the Psalmist, I stand before you today and ask that you search my heart and deal with me. Break, humble and bend me God that my desires are after your heartbeat and not just my own selfish desires. I desire that I be used of you, not so men can see what I can do, but so they understand what you can do because my ultimate need is to point men to you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
