Because of sin our hearts, our minds are readily open to negativity and temptations however they do not have to stay that way. When we search for God with all our heart and with all our minds, the transformation can begin. God knows our thoughts, He knows all that we have done and the things we will do. If we want to reap a good harvest of fruit we will have to turn our lives over to Him and then allow ourselves to be shaped by Him.
“The heart is deceitful above all things,
And d]”>[d]desperately wicked;
Who can know it?
10 I, the Lord, search the heart,
I test the e]”>[e]mind,
Even to give every man according to his ways,
According to the fruit of his doings. Jeremiah 17:9:10
