God knows our motives even when the world doesn't

Have you ever been in a situation where you've said that everything was resolved or someone was forgiven, yet you've struggled with actually forgiving them..? Keeping that bottled up will only lead to bitterness and resentment. God doesn't want that for us but we have to come to terms with ourselves and what is really dwelling in our hearts. We may even think we're in the right. (Our Heavenly Father is able to read our hearts, regardless) If we ask God to intercede by way of prayer, then we can truly forgive...

Proverbs 16:1-3 "The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established."

We want to be viewed as being trustworthy by the world but if our motives aren't truly pure that can lead to unnecessary hurdles to overcome later. We can only keep our true opinion of someone bottled up for so long. Again, this is where prayer comes in.

Matthew 12:34 "You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks."

We have a unique way of talking ourselves into literally anything but God knows what our true motives are.

James 4:3 "You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions."

Being forthright in our intentions will ultimately lead us onto a path of actual contentment. And we won't have to fool ourselves any longer.
