Jeremiah observes that: The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? (Jeremiah 17:9).
God reassuringly answers this question in the next verse:
“I the LORD, search the heart and examine the mind.” Jeremiah 17:10
When we continually offer our heart and mind to God, He will search it and sanctify it with His Holy Spirit. King David wrote:
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me . . . Psalm 139:23-24
Only God can cleanse our hearts and minds, but we need to cooperate with his work.
Paul was committed to guarding his heart and his mind and making every thought captive to (or under the control of) Jesus. This can only happen when we live God’s way, being led by the Spirit.
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:5-6
A mind and heart set on God is a peaceful, trusting heart (Isa. 26:3).
Will you let God guard your heart and mind beginning today?
