I (heart) Jesus

I am at the 92nd Peninsular Florida District Council of the Assemblies of God.  This will be my 32nd council I have attended.  Now I have, to be honest with you, I've never counted before.  So when I thought about this today, it actually shocked me.

Over the last 32 years, I have seen so many lives changed because of a vote or a simple statement made at the opportune time.

I am reminded of Matthew 26:49, And he came up to Jesus at once and said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” And he kissed him.  In one moment, Judas' life pivoted.  It changed and it wasn't good.  

But I am also reminded what happened in Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

What's the difference?

When mankind makes important decisions without God's direction, disaster will follow.

When mankind makes a powerful decision with God's direction, His blessing will follow.

I cannot stress more now than ever, follow God's will and your heart will follow.  When you follow your heart, it will lead you astray.  Even with the best of intentions.

PRAY:  Lord, lead my heart today and I will follow AMEN.
