Think about the things of heaven, not the things of the earth. Colossians 3:2

The story behind the song “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” by Danny Gokey demonstrates a vital Christian truth for us. The story goes like this: a pastor convinced a heart surgeon in his congregation to let him watch an open heart surgery. The pastor watched them roll the sleeping woman into the operating room and watched as the surgeon cut her chest open and pulled her heart up to work on it. Once the surgeon was finished he put the heart back in its place and massaged it a little to cause it to start beating again. Nothing happened. He tried it again. Again, the heart sat still. The doctor took more drastic measures and the heart still did not beat on its own.

Danny Gokey tells the rest of the story, “Finally the surgeon knelt down beside his patient and he took off his surgeon mask and said “Mrs. Johnson, this is your surgeon. The operation went perfectly, your heart has been repaired, now tell your heart to beat again.” And it did!

Mrs. Johnson had to agree with the truth, that her heart had been changed and was now repaired. It’s the same for us. We have to agree with the beautiful truths of God’s word–everything He says about us, and we will live a joyful, peaceful, beautiful life in Him regardless of our circumstances.

“You will know the truth and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).

Listen to what your mind is saying all day. Is it what the Bible says? Is it truth? Is it lovely, pure, and right? Do you hear uplifting, victorious, Christ inspired dialogue? Or do you hear struggle, defeat, insecurity, resentment, anger? Do you hear a deserving, lacking mentality? Instead of passively just listening to the tapes that repeat in your mind, begin to talk to yourself. Begin to speak truth. The truth will set you free. Take one verse with you today and tell your heart to beat again!

“Do not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (Romans 12:2).

丹尼·高基(Danny Gokey)的歌曲“告诉你的心再次跳动”背后的故事为我们展示了至关重要的基督教真理。故事是这样的:一位牧师说服了会众中的心脏外科医师,让他观看心脏直视手术。牧师看着他们把熟睡的女人滚进手术室,看着外科医生切开胸膛,拉起自己的心去做手术。外科医生完成手术后,他将心脏放回原处,并对其进行了少许按摩以使其开始再次跳动。什么都没有发生。他再次尝试了。再次,心脏静止不动。医生采取了更多严厉措施,心脏仍然没有跳动。

丹尼·高基(Danny Gokey)讲述了故事的其余部分:“最后,外科医生跪在他的病人旁边,他摘下了外科医生的面具,说:”约翰逊,这是你的外科医生。手术进行得很顺利,您的心脏已经修复,现在告诉您的心脏再次跳动。”它做到了!









Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, You and Your words are truth. Each day make me aware of the lies that I believe which keep me in some kind of bondage, apart from You. Guide me, teach me, Lord. I give my mind, will and emotions to You today and choose to submit to Your freeing truth.


Identify one lie which influences the way you live. Ask God for a scripture with which to saturate your mind and overcome the lie. Pray through that scripture each day for two weeks.
