What we most deeply believe determines the lives we live. Yet many of us—probably most of us—never really examine our deepest heart beliefs. There is a difference between cerebral beliefs—beliefs we hold in our heads—vs. deeply held beliefs of the heart.
Beliefs of the Heart is committed to uncovering our core heart beliefs, and then discovering and planting anew in our hearts the deepest truths about God. To succeed, we must each “above all else, guard our heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
We say in our head that God loves us, but we believe in our heart that we must perform in order to make him like us. So how do we live? We live lives of quiet desperation, hoping God won’t be too angry, and hoping others don’t see the real us.
When we know deep in our hearts that God loves us and pursues us—that he has come through time and space for us—then and only then are we free.
Let’s go to God for his reality, not held back by unexamined beliefs or family upbringing or wrong beliefs. Let’s go to God for his gift of true faith, knowledge of the one who saves us.
