What Is God's Heart Toward You?


One’s heart is the place of their emotions, likes and dislikes, and the principles that drive them. God Almighty has a heart. It is written that God is grieved, angered, pities, and purposes things; just to name a few. How God, in His heart, thinks of you is very important, as you can well imagine.

God told ancient Israel, “I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Notice the intent of God was peace and hope, “an expected end.” After ancient Israel had rejected God over many generations and national judgement had fallen upon them God’s heart had still not changed, “As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?”

So many imagine wrongly that God is out to get them when life is going bad and favours them when things are going their way. God is not moody and two-faced. “The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.” It is God that makes “his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” God has revealed His heart in His Word, the Holy Bible, and you can trust your Creator’s heart towards you. Remember the hope and peace mentioned above. We warmly invite you to come or call to hear more from the Word of God. This is not all God has to say.
