"Heart Or Mind?"

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."  Psalm 139:14

"That my soul knoweth right well."  The Psalmist knew some things about God on a personal level.  "For I am".  He knew that it was God who had made him.  It was God who formed him in his mother's womb.  He knew that God loved him, cared for him, and had compassion on him.  He knew that God had not made a mistake when He made him.  "I am fearfully and wonderfully made." 

These things that he knew about God, he knew in his inner most being.  "My soul knoweth right well".  He did not just have a "head knowledge" of God.  He didn't have a knowledge based on someone else's testimony of God.  He knew it personally in the deepest recesses of his heart.

Sadly, the majority of people only have a head knowledge, an educated understanding, what they have read in a book or what someone else has told them about God.  "Head knowledge" is never enough.  You have to have a "heart knowledge".  You have to know in your heart.  You have to have a relationship with Him that is deep rooted in your heart. 

Even the devils "believe" that God is who He is.  But their belief does them no good.  It is with the heart that man believes, and that heart belief makes him righteous. 

What do you know about God really isn't the right question.  The question is, "Do you know Him?"  But that too still isn't the right question.  The right question is, "Do you know Him with your heart/soul/innermost being?" 

Have a great day.  Do you know the Lord in your heart or in your mind?
