IT'S ALL ABOUT OUR HEART!
Just like the root determines the fruit, your heart determines your spiritual advancement, and your blessings in life. That is the root of all spiritual encounters because God sees our heart before He hears our voice. He responds to the state of our heart much more than He responds to our utterances and our acts.
In Acts 8:21, the apostles encountered a man who offered them money to buy the power of the Holy Ghost and Peter said to him, “Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. ” Which means, if your heart is right your part is guaranteed! The state of your heart determines the measure of your part. It is not the volume of your prayer that determines the volume of your blessing but the state of your heart. Men may commend your utterances but God answers your heart.
Nothing happens on this earth without a root in our heart. Every happening around us is a function of what is happening within us. We can never encounter a change on this earth until there is a move from our heart. It is the move of our heart that determines the changes on our earth. There is nothing a man cannot accomplish when his heart is in the right place with GOD.
In Jeremiah 29:11 God said, “…I know the thoughts that I think toward you…thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” But in verse 13 He said, “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart…” What moves God to perform His great thoughts towards us is measured by the state of our heart. So, ensure that your heart is connected, ensure that your heart is fervent, pure and right before God. When God finds a man or woman with a right heart, He has found the right man or woman to be anointed, empowered and blessed!
