The Heart Condition

Just something God has put on my heart lately.

It seems to me that everyone that's a Christian either has a plan or is looking for one. We want to know how to overcome temptation, how to find "that special person", how to be a better Christian. We want to have someone tell us what it looks like to be "sold out". We have master plans on how to bring about revival, how to save the lost, and how to live a proper "Christian" life. The irony of this is we are constantly forgetting that God holds the cards. Romans 8:28 tells us "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." We spend so much time worrying and striving for an ideal and often times forget that God doesn't want us to be the ultimate Christian, what he wants is our hearts. God can do far greater things with a Christian who has a humble heart then he can with one who has a plan of his own.
