Justice and judgment helps us not to look upon the sacrificial offerings all the time.

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but YaHuWaH ponders the heart – we may do things that seem right at the time but YaHuWaH is going to look at the heart to see if His word was used to balance, arrange, test and weigh the situation.

He is marking us and allowing us to continue in proper growth in our heart! In other words, He looks upon the heart which is a sign of the covenant.聽 Jer 31:31-34. He is looking on the heart to see if we are in covenant with Him.聽 He is looking for His Dabar which is the Torah.聽 And if He sees what he is looking for, He is marking us and allowing us to continue in proper growth within our inner man.聽 YaHuWaH is not out to bless our flesh!聽 YaHuWaH is out to bless our inner man that is dying because people are letting the outer man control their soul, their being.聽 He is trying to get us to continue with Him instead of being cut off from Him.

If you say, 鈥淪ee, we did not know this,鈥 Would not He who [weighs] H8505 the hearts discern it? He who watches over your life, Would He not know it? And shall He not repay man according to his work? Proverbs 24:12

All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes, but聽YaHuWaH [weighs] H8505 the spirits. Proverbs 16:2

YaHuWaH is balancing and weighing out our hearts making sure His Dabar (Word) is in our hearts.

We truly have to constantly ponder, weigh, balance, test and prove all things we allow in our lives so Abba will see His word upon our hearts! We cannot allow contaminated seed to work in our lives! That would make us illegitimate and a bastard seed!

鈥淒o not sow your vineyard with different kinds of seed, lest the yield of the seed which you have sown and the fruit of your vineyard be defiled. Deut 22:9

The word being upon our heart is a sign that we have a covenant with ABBA.
