Choosing with the heart…

I had an experience with the Lord this morning where He showed me the difference between choosing with my mind and choosing with my heart…

I might not express this completely accurately but here goes…

When we hear things from others or from an inner voice or from what we believe is the Lord, if it appeals to our minds and makes us feel that we have to ‘choose’ and we weigh it all up in our minds and it’s painful and then we have to ‘force’ ourselves to ‘choose’ then this is not choosing from the heart – this is a ‘fake’ choosing and it’s happening in our minds…

And it won’t last…

It won’t stick…

But when the Lord speaks to our hearts – as I’ve experienced – our heart just ‘receives’ what He is saying and the ‘opposite’ (which has been living through us) just ‘falls off’…

I’ve never seen this so clearly as this morning when the Lord actually explained it to me…

Very powerful…

He said it was, “natural” when He did it…

And it has been – I’ve had these experiences but never known how to ‘put them into words’…

Effortless…

His yoke truly is easy…

He truly does do all the work…

Now I see how He is going to complete all that He has said that He will do in my life…

Now I see what He was talking to me about “ceasing” from Psalm 46…

Wow – now I see how you “rise on wings as eagles” when you “wait on the Lord”…

Wow…

He is Everything…

And I worship Him…

He speaks to my heart and my heart – my new heart – responds – and I am changed – practically changed…

There is no striving in this…

None…

Beautiful…

I love You Lord…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
