What does it take for you to be freed from the prison of the heart? Only God has the key.
Why? Because by virtue of being God, God knows all that is in your heart. You can’t hide anything from him--your grief or your evil. He knows everything. You can't escape from him. He knows you. He cares for you.
Also, out the heart comes your evil thoughts but only the pure in heart are blessed. Only the pure in heart are fortunate. Only the pure in heart can see God, that for which your heart longs.
Next, loving God takes your heart too. You must love the Lord your God with all your heart! Right now you love your self with all your heart. Instead, you ought to love the Lord your God will all your heart.
You see, there is a deep, strong relationship between head and heart. The heart won't value what the head won't believe. The heart may value, what the head doesn't know. But the heart won't value what the head doesn’t believe even though it can't know.
I want to give you Someone the head may believe and the heart may value. Only God is worth that kind of value and belief.
Finally, for you to have the salvation of your soul, the freedom of your heart, you have to believe in God with your heart.
