What Lies Beneath
A few weeks ago I saw a picture of the Iceberg that sunk the Titanic ship. In the Picture, only the surface was visible and did NOT have the appearance of being destructive. My mind wondered, "WHAT LIES BENEATH?"
What lied beneath was destruction. An iceberg so large that in ONE hit too many lives went down with it. The bible says, "Search me O God, and see if there is any wicked way in me." –Psalm 139:24
What lies beneath many of us can be so destructive, and you may not even realize there is a giant iceberg inside that could cause it. The surface peeks out only a little so that it is recognized, yet destruction lies beneath. OUR HEARTS are these precious stones that GOD wants to mold and shape and use, We have the ability to stir ourselves where destruction is put away from us or we allow ourselves to get too close to the destruction that it even takes you down with it.
It's so much easier to surrender to go where you know is right because that’s where life is. Not only can we be destructive on ourselves but we can destroy others. There is a verse that says in Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but it’s end is the way of death.”
Our hearts need to be broken down. We are not always right and apart from Jesus we are always wrong. Only Christ can go beneath. Whatever lies beneath needs to be removed and replaced.
Sometimes it takes suffering, humility or just plain recognition of the hardness of our hearts. The surface is not what matters it’s beneath that does.
