TROUBLES OF THE HEART
The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O Lord bring me out of my distresses.
THREE HEART TROUBLES
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Deception does three things.
Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking toward those things which are coming on the earth.
Fear magnifies the problem.
Fear amplifies the noise.
Fear mystifies the details.
For you have said in your heart,
I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:
Pride does three things that get you into trouble.
I WILL ASCEND
I WILL EXALT
I WILL SIT UPON
Human ambition is lauded by the world – but brings trouble to the heart of a believer.
Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God – and when He is ready He will exalt you.
A TROUBLED HEART
ALWAYS BRINGS DISTRESS
