The only thing that unlocks the human heart is the word of God. 

King David says it clearly in that he hid God's word in his heart so that he would not sin against the Lord (Psalm 119). 

This theme runs throughout all of scripture: The Word of God is the answer to the problems of the human heart.

Meditating is an active exercise. 

Some common perceptions of meditation are a person who is passive, quiet, and recluse. The biblical context, especially when considering the ancient Hebrew word, seems to reference an active murmuring, a defensive and protective stand, repetitive words and actions, along with an aggressive posture to hold on to God's word as a life source.

Peace (Hebrew word: "Shalovm") can be a word of battle. 

Because of sin, humans are incomplete and not whole. Peace can restore and bring us to a place of wholeness/completeness. In an ancient Hebrew context, a word picture for Shalovm could refer to "destroying any authorities that cause chaos," thus restoring wholeness. 

All of this happens in the heart.

Inherently, the human heart does not want to do what God would require us to do, yet with a changed heart, the Lord gives us the ability to obey and respond and do the things He asks of us.

The Holy Spirit brings conviction to the heart. He can use anything to bring us to a place of repentance of a lifestyle that God did not build. 

Holy Spirit is good at pointing out specific details of those areas of the heart; we may not understand why we feel the "conviction," but he can lead us to a place of living according to God's best.

There is a way that the Lord created the heart to receive things and process those things. 

Using a Communication Theory called "Constructivism," learn about Dr. Conrad's connection between a scholarly theory and the spiritual implications of the functions of the heart. If we know how the heart functions, we can generally understand how, why, and what is happening inside of our heart.

God will have to convict us of all those things that are "false comforters." 

The Lord may open your eyes to how you won't let Him comfort you because of all those things you run to for comfort. These other things are "false comforters," yet God's Spirit is the only true Comforter. 

Will you let God comfort you?

King David was a man after God's heart. 

Throughout scripture, we see God show himself as a Father. One of His names is "ABBA" or "Father." He reveals himself as Father over and over again. 

God's heart is a fathering heart. When we seek after God's heart, we are seeking after a fathering heart.

The matters of life flow from the heart. Therefore, it is so important to recognize how we are to govern the affairs of our heart. 

Because government is difficult, it is important for us to learn to focus on our hearts and allow the Lord to lead them.

The wise King Solomon said, "Guard your heart, for out of it flows the issues of life." 

All of life's matters come from the heart, and we must protect it. The word of God helps us understand what boundaries need to be placed around the heart to have a prosperous life.

Because we are human, our natural way is to go astray; we need to constantly train. 

The Apostle Paul said, "I beat my body to make it a slave..." He did this because he understood how his heart and body strays away. We are to think like Paul.

Your heart, like an orchestra, plays different notes. Each department of the heart has a distinct purpose, sound, and intention, and God alone knows how to align those parts. When we submit to the "Conductor" of our hearts, we have a whole heart before the Lord.

The most complex part of humanity is the human heart.

So many things are happening in the heart; sometimes, these things counteract each other. For instance, the intellectual side of our heart may want one thing, but our desires or passions may have a different direction. Our emotional side may feel one thing, but our thoughts may "say" something different. 

The Lord wants us to have a whole heart that a...

In Communication Studies, there is a framework for human cognitive processing outlined in five parts: 1) Sensory Inputs, 2) Meaning, 3) Storage, 4) Retrievals, and 5) Communication Outputs. The inputs that come in will have some sort of communication output at some point. This is all happening in the human heart. 

Whatever we allow to plant in our hearts will eventually produce fruit.
