We hear this idea everywhere, and we want to trust it. We want our hearts to speak and offer pure advice. But our voice is not God’s voice, and our hearts don’t always offer wise counsel. Jeremiah 17:9 plainly tells us, “the heart is deceitful above all things, and beyond cure. Who can understand it?”

From Carpe Diem to YOLO, the world has always prioritized following the self’s desires over God’s. In this episode, Chara unpacks a better way to think about making decisions, centered on the Word of God.
