Check The Posture Of The Heart Before You Engage!

Check The Posture Of The Heart Before You Engage!

Sweet voice… check!
Curves… check!
Blue eyes… check!
Fun to be with… check!
Active in church… check!
But bro wait! Before you cling to her, have you checked her heart?

Plays keyboard… check!
Tall, dark, and handsome… check!
Money in pocket… check!
No dull moment with him… check!
Visionary… check!
But sister, before you allow him to capture your heart, have you checked his own heart?

I usually tell people whenever I have the opportunity:
Check the heart!
Check the heart!
Check the heart!
Beauty can be deceptive, but the heart can’t.
External shows can also be deceptive, but the heart can’t.

So before you cling to someone, make sure you examine and are cool with the posture of his/her heart… because when all is said and done, the state of the heart will surely determine the statement (actions) of the body.


The heart of a person is the driving force of that life.
And just like a car heading to a destination may not currently be at the location but will definitely get there (all things being equal), a person may not have arrived at the destination but the heart will definitely drive the person there.

This is actually a double-edged sword.

On the one side:

That she looks good on the outside doesn’t mean her heart is good.
Remember that the body is simply dust/dirt!
Check the heart.

That he’s nice doesn’t mean that his heart is perfect.
Someone said that ‘nice’ is not a fruit of the Spirit… hehehe.

Check the heart.

On the other hand:

As a brother you may be looking for a lady on fire!
And then you meet one whom you’re attracted to, but who is not yet speaking in multi-syllabic tongues.
Brother, before fleeing, check her heart!

Is her heart chasing after the LORD?
Is her heart panting after God?
Or is the heart just satisfied with her current state?

Sincere answers to these questions is what you need bro.
She may not be spitting tongues of fire right now, but if her heart is pursuing God, she will definitely get to that destination.

So don’t flee simply because she is not currently speaking multi-dimensional tongues when her heart is wholly devoted and pursuing God!

So my brethren…
Don’t neglect the heart!
Jesus says it in this perfect way:

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.”
Matthew 12:35 NKJV

The heart is important my friend… check it before you check in!
You may not get a perfect person, but make sure you get a perfect heart!

Above all else, cling to someone whose heart is submitted to God.
A person who the Spirit of God can rebuke and she will align.
A person who God can correct and he will listen.

Quick question:

How can one discern the heart of another man? What are some of the ways I can find out the type of heart a person has?

Let me hear you in the comment section.

The Spirit of God broods upon my heart.

LORD, work my heart into submission to You.

Every person will finally arrive at the destination of his/her heart.

Ponder on the ways you can discern men’s heart, and then make it known in the comment section.

Matthew 12:33-37

    Discernment is part of the the ways to know man’s heart and the bible also said out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speak. In all Holy Spirit is needed.

      It therefore means we must build our spirits so we can discern accurately.


      Thank you ma
