START WITH YOUR HEART

START WITH YOUR HEART
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

God isn’t interested in your pew sitting,
Tithe giving,
Church living ways.
He’s after something much bigger than that …
He wants your heart.
He wants “you.”
You won’t find rest until He has you.
You won’t find peace until He’s redeemed you.
You won’t find life until He’s living through you.
Start with your heart … and God will lead you from there.
Don’t confuse activity with intimacy.

“To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me?” says the Lord.
“I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed cattle. I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs or goats. When you come to appear before Me, who has required this from your hand, to trample My courts? Bring no more futile sacrifices; incense is an abomination to Me. The New Moons, the Sabbaths, and the calling of assemblies; I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting. Your New Moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates;
They are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them.
When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood.
Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.
Cease to do evil, learn to do good;
Seek justice …”
Isaiah 1:11-16
