Where Evil Begins

Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.  ~ Genesis 6:5-6

Okay, so here’s today’s thought-provoking question…….

If the Lord looks at my heart, will He see evil intent in every thought?  Get that?  Every thought – not every action.  The Lord looks upon the heart.  That is where evil begins, but that is also where sincere worship, obedience, and faithfulness come from.

Is God grieved when He looks at my heart, or does He see the heart of a servant who is sincerely seeking Him, putting Him first in everything, and obeying His directions to the letter?

I need to align my heart to His Word so that He does see a servant, ready and willing to obey the least little command, request, or directive!
