Our decisions come from the heart

Recently, I sought the Lord on some big decisions I needed to make.  In seeking His direction, He showed me that ultimately the decision that I would make would come from the heart.  (God showed me Ex 28:15-29 which talks about Aaron’s brestplate of decison, which was worn over the heart.)

The trouble is however, that the heart is very deceptive, and sometimes the decision we think we are making for the right reasons, is actually for a hidden motive or heart desire  Jer 17:9.

God will allow us to make wrong decisions to flush out our hidden desires and motives that are not of Him, so that they can be dealt with.  Although it is often very unpleasant and costly, we will always reap a harvest down the track, once the hidden sin is dealt with.
