Acts 1:24 “And they prayed and said, “You, Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which one of these two you have chosen.” Peter after the resurrection wanted to replace Judas so he stated what were the qualifications of an apostle. They were that the person must have been eye witness to Jesus through out his ministry on earth. There were two people that qualified and then Peter prayed. This may be one model we should use in making decisions. Use our God given knowledge and then pray. We need both because truth and direction all come from the Lord. Peter’s prayer tells us that only God knows the heart and therefore know what the next action will be since the heart determines choices and chooses determine future activities. God knows the heart because that is where he works in humans. We need to know our heart because when we do we will know what Jesus wants us to do. Your word have I hide in my heart that I might please you. Thank you Jesus for loving us. Amen
