I find it hard to deal with fake folk. Yes, I agree everyone has an outer life and an inner life. The outer life is our public life that people can see. The inner life is made up of our thoughts, attitudes and motives. Only you and God know whatâ€™s going on inside. Too many people go around today pretending and acting one way, yet on the inside theyâ€™re totally different. Their heart and their actions donâ€™t line up.
A message to the pretender, understand God looks at the outside as well as the inside. We can fool a lot of people, but we canâ€™t fool God. God would rather us be open and honest, than go through life pretending, wearing masks and being fake.
Today, please take inventory of whatâ€™s going on inside of you. Are you at peace? Are you overlooking offenses? Do you believe the best for people? Does your heart and actions line up? Does your religious spiritual exterior line up with your inner heart and mind? If not, submit your ways to the Lord and ask Him to give you an undivided heart. Live a life pleasing to Him, and walk in His blessing all the days of your life!
“Teach me Your way, LORD, that I may rely on Your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your Name.”(Psalm 86:11, NIV)?
Pray With Me
Elohim, I humbly come before You today. Please search the deep places of my heart and remove anything unlike You. Yahweh, help me to stop pretending and to be real. Please show me if there is any area where I need to line up my inside and myÂ outside. God, help me to be authentic in You today, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
