Jesus knows the human heart because he made it, and then he took one for himself when he became man. Christ knows our heart can be weak, anxious, guilty evil and broken. He has proven he can give strength, in perfect portion, to a weak heart; peace to an anxious heart; forgiveness to a guilty heart; and wholeness to a broken heart.
“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth” (Colossians 3:2).
Our emotions are governed in large measure by what we think, what we dwell on in our minds. An example, Jesus told us to overcome the emotion of anxiety by what we consider: “Consider the ravens. . . . Consider the lilies” (Luke 12:24, 27).
The mind is the window of the heart, so if we let our minds constantly dwell on the darkness, the heart will feel and act dark. But if we open the window of our mind to the light in Christ, the heart will feel the light of the Gospel.
The Bible tells us our spiritual hearts have a disease: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). Jesus, the Great Physician, lists the sinful and evil symptoms of this disease: “out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander” (Matthew 15:19).
Back in the June of 2018 I had a heart catherization. After having had Radiation/ADT therapy the previous Feb-March for a returning cancer I developed some symptoms that ultimately led to a heart catherization.
For the test the Cardiologists put a long, narrow tube called a catheter into a blood vessel in your arm or leg and guide it to your heart with the aid of a special X-ray machine. Doctors use contrast dye that they inject into your blood vessel through the catheter to create X-ray videos of your valves, coronary arteries, and heart chambers.
The procedure checks for:
Check for heart disease (such as coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, or disease of the aorta)
Check how your heart muscle is working
Decide whether you need further treatment (such as an interventional procedure or bypass surgery)
Our human heart is designed to love God above all else, and is never happier than when it does. The human soul is designed to find its rest in the promises God himself makes to us, just as the human psyche is designed to find its security in the unconditional acceptance and love of its Creator. Ultimately the human body is designed to work best when the heart, soul, and mind are functioning in a harmonious love for in God.
