Your Heart Will Expose You  

Your Heart Will Expose You  
Today, you hear many believers talking about God in terms of going through tests, trials, tribulations, judgment,  and even hardships.  Whenever your spiritual identity isn’t rooted in righteousness, your will feel worthy of suffering instead of blessing.
Paul explained to the church in Rome that trials, tribulations, and persecutions, etc. would never separate you from God’s love.  (Romans 8:35-39)  He went on to teach them they would overcome all these situations if they never forgot they were loved by God.
Religion tries to convince people that trials, tribulations, etc. came as punishment or evidence that God is angry with you.  Obviously, Paul disagrees because he wanted believers to know that it doesn’t matter what life’s difficulties they face. They didn’t come from God.
“Do not let your heart be troubled,(afraid, cowardly.  Believe (confidently) in God and trust in Him, (Have faith, hold on to it, rely on it, keep going and ) believe also in Me (John 14:1, AMP). 
Ed Elliot
