Believe In Yourself And Follow Your Heart???
Follow your heart....it has been said many times on television, in movies, books, etc. This is most definitely NOT what we should do. Telling someone to follow their heart is basically telling them to go and kill themselves.
*** “ The heart is deceitful above all things,
And desperately wicked;
Who can know it? ***
The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked!! Why would you follow it? A person who chooses to follow his/her heart is NOT following God and is going to end up in Hell. The 'follow your heart' message is of the devil! HE wants you to follow your heart! GOD wants you to follow HIM. Read your Bibles and do not follow these lying cliches.
'Believe in yourself' is another thing people like to say. It is also a message of Satan. Where in the Bible has God EVER said that we need to believe in ourselves??? NOWHERE!!!! In fact, He says the opposite! God says that we MUST NOT put our trust in ourselves or in any other besides God Himself. We must put our trust in God ALONE. We must believe in Him because we, as humans, are liable to fall, while God remains true no matter what.
2 Corinthians 1:9
*** we should not trust in ourselves but in God ***
Satan wants you to believe these lies, 'follow your heart' and 'believe in yourself', because he does NOT want you to follow after God. He wants you to do what you want, so that you do NOT do what God wants. He wants you to follow self instead of God! God, however, wants you to follow Him, read His Word and obey Him. Following self is going to lead to destruction in Hell fire while following God, to eternal life in Heaven with Him. I choose God. What do you choose?
