Guess What the Doctor Saw!

I recently had a heart cath.  Doctors use this procedure to exam how well your heart is working.  A catheter is inserted into a large artery (in my case, the radial artery at the wrist).  Contrast dye is then injected into the heart, in effect, creating a “movie x-ray.”  The doctor uses these images to look for blockages in the arteries.  Although I was awake and able to talk to the doctor and look at these images on the screen, I had no idea how to interpret those images.  Thankfully, the doctor did! 

As I was watching the screen and talking to the doctor during the procedure I wondered, “What does God see when He looks at my heart” (Acts 1:24)?  Does He see a heart that trusts in Him (Palm 28:7)?  Does He see a heart where His word is hidden (Psalm 119:11)?  Does He see a heart that is pure (Matthew 5:8)?  Does He see a heart from whence evil thoughts come (Matthew 15:19)?  Does He see a heart that is forgiving (Matthew 18:35)?  Does He see a heart that loves Him completely (Matthew 22:37)?  Does He see a heart that is troubled and filled with anxiety (John 14:1)?  Does He see a heart that is sensitive and touched by sin (Acts 2:37)?  Or does He see a heart that is hardened and insensitive to sin (Mark 10:5)?  Does He see a heart where Christ dwells (Ephesians 3:17)?  Does He see a heart that strives to do His will (Ephesians 6:6)?  Does He see a heart where the peace of God rules (Colossians 3:15)?

What does God see when He looks at YOUR heart?  It’s something to think about!
