The heart is deceiptful above all things,desperately wicked , who can know it (Jeremiah 17:9)
Have you ever imagined why most people behave strangely the way they do ?
The reason is simple, The way of man is not in himself, it is not in man that walks to direct his steps. (Jeremiah 10:23). The bible says cursed is he that puts his trust in man.Do you know that the people praising you today will be the same people against you tomorrow? That’s man’s nature.
It is only God that can change your heart to do the good things.He desires mercy and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings (Hosea 6:6). Every thing that God requires of us is about transformation of the heart.
The Lord doesn’t want us to glory in our wisdom, might, riches but rather to glory in knowing him and understanding him and that he is the lord that exercises loving kindness,judgement and righteousness in the earth.(Jeremiah 9:23). If you want God to change your ways, just pray he will do it.
