broken_heart

I know you have to just think….what is going on with all of these child killings.  Children stuffed in plastic bags, kids stuffed in suitcases, kids dumped in the ocean…..by parents or friends…..  It is sickening!  How can we abuse the most helpless segment of our population?   It is wicked.  It breaks my heart to even think about losing a child. 

Jeremiah 17:9 speaks to this.  It talks about how the heart is wicked.  Our heart is wicked.  What else can explain the murder of our children by those that are supposed to be watching over them.   The Message version is very good at describing this.  It describes the heart as a puzzle that no one can figure out. 

God says that he knows our heart.  He wants to make our heart right.  Psalm 51:10 has an answer for this.  A powerful man had done some very detestable things.  He took a man’s wife and killed the man….  God can make all of this right.  This powerful man asked God for help.  God is in the helping business.  He asked God to create in him, the one who fell short, the one who sinned, the one who took advantage of another that ended in death…….he asked for a clean heart.

You probably have not done any of these things…..but our heart is deceitfully wicked…..if we don’t ask God to create a new heart in us.  Ask God to search your heart and see if there be any wicked way in it.    He is able to fix anything.
