Summary: What to do with your all your heart?
Jeremiah 29:1-14 What to do with your all your heart?
Col 3:23 says, “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.”
Now the question is, What shall we do with all our hearts?
1. We should Seek the Lord with all our hearts.
Deut 4:29 “But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart, and with all thy soul
Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the thoughts (plans) that I think ( have) towards (for) you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye search for me with all your heart.”
2. We should Serve the Lord with all our hearts.
Deut 10:12-13, “And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to love him and serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul? To keep the commandment of the Lord, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?
3. We should Love the Lord with all our hearts.
Deut 6:4-5 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thine soul, and with all thy might.”
4. We should Obey the Lord with all our hearts.
Psalms 119:1-2 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
5. We should Turn to the Lord with all our hearts.
Joel 2:12-13 “Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: Rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord thy God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of evil…”
6. We should Praise the Lord with all our hearts.
Psalms 86:12 “I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all m heart: and I will glorify thy name for ever more.”
7. We should Trust the Lord with all our hearts.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not towards thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Now a question is why should we give God all our hearts?
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but shall have everlasting life.”
