Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord,
Like the rivers of water;
He turns it wherever He wishes.
You are the Lord of the heart!
It is in Your hand
like a rudder guiding the way
turning me where I should go
Proverbs 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes,
But the Lord weighs the hearts.
weighing the heart is Your specialty
man can find any justification to fit his fancy
giving him a false freedom within
but You sort the fibers within the heart
You alone decide if what’s there is right or if it’s wrong
The heavy heart tells much
Proverbs 21:3 To do righteousness and justice
Is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
There are times we humans desire to simply find a way to take the blame from another
and sacrifice ourselves so that drama, trauma and issue may cease
we would like the pain of the uncomfortable to dissipate
so we can be free from the waiting
But You desire rightness and justice instead
and that means I must always trust and follow You
allowing You to do Your work
Sadly we humans seek at times to relieve others from Your hand
Forgetting how kind You really are
Proverbs 21:4 A haughty look, a proud heart,
And the plowing of the wicked are sin.
With great grief and hardship to ourselves we can start to believe that look in an others eyes
that says “ what’s it to you anyway? and the expression of prides unwillingness to bend
we start to believe that the anger toward us isn’t just their perception of judgment
we churn looking for the needle in us that caused this
It is in reality the push of sin within
Its that which we all could fall by
it digs deep to drive away others and blame them instead of finding humble footing
Have mercy Lord!!- BE THE LORD OF THE HEART – and turn each of us once again to You.
For Your kindness is great and Your love is deep
