Proverbs 12:22 – Verse of the Day 10/4/13
This verse lies at the center of a series of proverbs that connect the heart with its fruit. A deceitful heart makes and carries out foolish plans, and a righteous heart makes and carries out wise plans. In this verse, a lying heart makes deceptive plans and receives the Lord’s judgment, whereas a faithful heart receives the Lord’s delight and blessing.
As you pray, ask the Lord to impress the proverbs connection between heart, action, and consequence upon your soul. Pray for the wisdom to discern the state of your heart through your actions. Ask the Lord to change your heart, to give you a genuine desire to seek and honor Him, and to long for the blessings that come through faithfulness.
