Jeremiah 17:9: The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Meditation: According to this verse God tells me that my heart deceives me by getting me to believe that all my ways are right. My main problem is not with the people and things around me but the sin that resides in me. My main problem is not that I live with broken people in a broken world. My problem is that I am broken. I need to confess the wickedness in my own heart.
Prayer: Father, please remind me through your Word and Spirit that my heart is deceitful and wicked. I need your grace and forgiveness as I seek to please you today.
