Heart Attack

Heart Attack by Keith Cook

"Harden not your hearts."  Hebrews 3:8

The Devil is trying to make you have a "Heart Attack." He wants to destroy your spiritual heart. There are many different kinds of hearts mentioned in the Bible, and each of them can help us get a clear picture of what God wants us to avoid in life and what He has for each of us in this life and in eternity.

There are Hard Hearts - These are hearts that have been hardened to the Spirit of God. Life seems hopeless and there appears to be no way out of evil and dreadful situations. No peace. No joy. No indication of guilt. Irresponsibility. (Hebrews 3:8)

There are Dirty Hearts - These are represented by lives that are full of sin and in need of cleansing and forgiveness and hope. The Devil attacks hearts of men and women and traps individuals into going farther into sin than they intended to go and has them staying in bondage to sin longer than they ever dreamed possible.

There are Dead Hearts - These lifeless hearts have been crushed by a load of sin and literally are dead to life in Christ.  They are dead to a work of God in their lives. Spiritual things make no sense to them. Life is lived in the flesh. They give no room or thought to spiritual and/or eternal values.

There are Searching Hearts - These Holy Spirit quickened hearts are open to a life in the spirit and are ready for new life. These are hearts that are longing for something better. They represent hearts that are looking for love and acceptance.

There are Clean Hearts - Clean hearts are basically lives that have been transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit and set free from the penalty of sin. These hearts represent lives which are forever secure in their relationship with Christ.

There are New Hearts - This is the kind of heart that God wants you to have today. Hearts that represent lives that are walking in the newness of life in the Spirit. Jesus has made these hearts new. Scars are gone. Sin is gone. The Devil's heart attack is not evident because the old heart has been replaced. Your life can be one of newness of life. You are a new creation. There is hope, happiness, and purpose.

Let your heart beat with life in Christ.
