Unclogging Our Psychological Heart (2)

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin. (9) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

[Part 2 of 2] What, then, about our will? If we go to the Lord concerning our will, He will expose it in a thorough and detailed way. In particular, we shall realize that we are very rebellious, that we do not know what it means to be submissive to the Lord. The Lord may show you that you were wrong in a particular matter. Then He may go on to show you how you were wrong with a certain brother or a certain sister. Each time you will need to confess. You should thank the Lord that you are under His light, under His exposure. By confessing all that the Lord exposes in our will, we unclog the artery of our will. The artery of the emotion also needs to be unclogged. When we realize how serious is the problem we have with our emotion, we may be deeply sorrowful. We shall realize that in many cases we hate what we should love, and love what we should hate. No wonder our psychological heart does not function normally. If we take the time necessary to unclog the three main arteries of our psychological heart, we shall have the sense that our entire being has become living. Our mind, will, and emotion will all be in a very healthy condition. All the "dirt" in these "ditches" will then be dug away. No one can do this unclogging for you. Thus, you need to go to the Lord day by day and ask Him to expose everything wrong in your mind, will, and emotion. Then in the light of what He exposes, you need to confess.
