When we are attempting to discern the burdens of our hearts, we must test and try our hearts by the standard of God’s word and by godly counsel. Our hearts can be easily deceived to do what “we want”. We can be corrupted by the sensual desire and wisdom of this world. Therefore, we need to test and try what our hearts desire to ensure it aligns with God’s word. We need to pray for godly, heavenly wisdom to make good decisions as the Lord guides our hearts according to his will.
