Self examination of those things hidden in the heart of Believer by the enemy.

                                                                    Heart of the Matter


          The organ that is vital in the natural as well as the spirit is the heart. The Word says that the heart is deceitfully wicked. (Jeremiah 17:10). Many Believers cry out for a “clean heart and a renewal of the right spirit” without realizing the depth of the cleansing that is needed. (Psalm 51:10).

          We must continually seek the Lord about the condition of the heart. The fall of Adam opened the door of the heart to the various devices that the enemy uses to steal, kill and destroy. The enemy is after your potential to become, to arrive at the destiny that God has ordained for you. He does not want that which God has hidden on the inside of you to manifest. In fact, you really have no idea of all that has been deposited and activated because of your position in the Kingdom.

          Deception has been used to keep many from the realization of how great a destiny that is lying dormant on the inside. The enemy is relentless in his attack even through deposits of contamination. Recently, I found a scripture that opened my eyes to my heart. “He answered, Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be torn up by the roots.” (Matthew 15:13). The cry for a clean heart is different now.

          Meditating on this scripture immediately led me to think about the parable of the wheat and tares. This parable is usually viewed from a kingdom perspective for the Body of Christ. But I wanted to use it for a personal application. What has been planted in the field of my heart by the enemy? Searching and finding many things which are denied because of pride and then there are the unknown with roots, all which can only be dug out with the Word of God for deliverance. Admission for transparency is easier said than done.

          Tares are defined as troublesome, noxious weed that are harmful to your well being that corrupts with a poisonous stench. Along the journey of life, the enemy looks at many places to plant tares in your path seeking to destroy your destiny before it even unfolds. We are not born with rejection, anger, fear, insecurities, jealousy, or perversion. At some point along the journey, the enemy came in and found a place to plant for future growth.

          Have you ever known someone that is always harsh in speech or must always be in control? Approaching them about the behavior they exhibit would be a futile attempt because the response would be “that is the way that I am or you really don’t know me.”  The "you" that we see and experience I not the "you" that God created and planned for "you" to be. Even though there is the born again experience which transforms the spirit, the flesh does not submit. Sadly, Believers can sit in the atmosphere of the anointing of God and there be no change. If you ever recognize the tares, ask God to go deep to take it out especially if it is hindering you from becoming a vessel to be used for the Kingdom.

          Everything that the enemy has deposited within your heart has been designed to come against the faith that was delivered and written. It is time to go deep so that we can go high and launch out beyond the comfort zone where we have been too long. Instead of seeking the Father about your needs (which He has daily taken care of) ,why not seek Him about the condition of the heart?  He knows your needs and you know your needs. He knows the depth of your heart that you do not know. In this time, there are deposits in the wind of the Holy Spirit that are no longer quickly approaching, but are upon us. Pursue Him passionately for the truth of your heart.


“There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord,

 that shall stand.” (Proverbs 18:21 KJV)

“The impulses of the human heart may run wild, but the Eternal’s plan will prevail.”

What you write about in biblical terms makes perfect secular sense to cast out negativity within for inner peace and harmony.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 8/7/2015
I have a helper who always speaks like, "Have you ever known someone that is always harsh in speech or must always be in control?" As far as I know, she is also a devout Christian. I tolerate her because she takes good care of me for the period of time she is, "on the job," and generally doesn't complain about her work, only everything else.

The only thing that I can include is that she, perhaps because she has helped disabled people for very low pay and probably didn't do very well in school. And may very well have been abused… None of which she has shared with me… She may have very low self-esteem. I sense that her harsh behavior is lashing out in defense because she cannot reasonably converse with me, a Caucasian. And that's the heart of the matter.
