Listen To Your Heart Verses

Verses on The Heart

7 I will give them a heart to know that I am the LORD, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.

Jeremiah 24:7

19 And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, 20 that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

Ezekiel 11:19-20

Through Him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Romans 5:2-5

21 And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, 22 and who has also put His seal on us and given us His Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

2 Corinthians 1:21-22

Listen To The Heart of God

It’s easy to say that we have to listen to the heart of God, but what does that mean? I believe that each of us has individual calls on our lives, but as a Church, we have one overall call that is for all of us. Peter explains this by saying,

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

2 Peter 3:9

God’s desire is that NONE would perish, but ALL be saved. How can we be sure?

17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.

John 3:17

11 Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel?

Ezekiel 33:11

God’s desire is that ALL of mankind be saved, this is the will of God. This is the heart of God. So, what does that mean for us? Our overall call on ALL of our lives is to win lost souls. We are ALL called by God, and this is the overall call of God.

19 And He said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Matthew 4:19

Can You Trust To Your Heart?

We have to listen to the heart of God, instead of trusting in our own heart. Don’t trust your own heart, trust the LORD. Follow the heart of God and He will guide you. Act in love and you will never stray from God. Live your life as though you love God with more than just words, love Him with your actions. Put your trust in Him and He will lead you to where you need to be.
