Spiritually speaking the heart is where our emotions and desires are manifested. This is why it’s important to be careful about what you allow your eyes to see and your ears to hear. If we do not control our fleshly desires and align them with God’s word and commandments, we will find ourselves in trouble.
Proverbs 4: 23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
It’s like a ravaging disease that keeps spreading like wildfire until our hearts are hardened and black. When this happens, we become desensitized to the world around us. We don’t love, care, and we don’t have a desire to repent. We can’t even see the good that God does for us.
Mark 6:52 – For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.
We are gorging our self with sin and it begins to manifest and flow out of our body in the from our words and actions. Often times we get to the point where we can’t even recognize right from wrong.
Romans 2:5 But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God.
“Render the hearts of this people insensitive, Their ears dull, And their eyes dim, Otherwise they might see with their eyes, Hear with their ears, Understand with their hearts, And return and be healed.”
God wants to heal you and he doesn’t desire for you to stay in the state you are in. He loves you and has a plan far greater than the reasons for your hardened heart.
How To Melt A Hardened Heart:
•Return to God and repent. Ask Jesus into your heart if you haven’t.
• Ask God to search and know you (Psalm 139:23-24)
•Guard your heart from the sin (Proverbs 4:23; Psalm 119:9-11)
•Read and know the word (Psalm 119:9-11)
•Think on the good things (Philippians 4:8)
Psalm 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!
Psalm 119: 9-11 How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.
