Psalm 1: 2-3

Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God. – Acts 8:21

What many struggle to come to terms with is when it appears as if these are being denied them and they wonder aloud- why? Peter told Simon the reason why he was disqualified from what he sought after; that the state of his heart was not right before God. Many may still struggle to accept this position ..after all we have been made right with God in Christ they would say. True, but our hearts in this case is not right with God when the motives driving the desire is wrong and is driven purely by lust, selfishness and greed, just as Apostle James pointed out (James 4:1-4). What should I do, well let us begin by asking for forgiveness and for our heart to be made right with God.
