Why It’s Better To Follow Your Heart Than Think With Your Head

Follow your heart not your head

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding. ~ Proverbs 3:5

Let me ask you a question today.

Do you agree with the phrase: “think with your head, not your heart”?


Because you’ve heard it often? Because you’ve experienced it? Or because it just sounds…logical?

I’m sure you’re not alone in your answer. Just google the phrase and you’ll find so many people insisting how we need to use our head and not our heart in making decision.

Oh, but why is that so?

“How can you foolishly follow your heart to make decisions based on blind emotions and impulsive feelings?”

“Shouldn’t you rely on your head to think through all the possibilities, to weigh all the pros and cons before deciding?”

Well, I’ll say they’re probably right if they’re addressing a non-believer. After all, there’s nothing to guarantee that non-believers’ hearts can think better than their heads.

But as a believer, you can trust your heart if you were to depend on the Holy Spirit to teach and guide you from within.

How’s that even possible?

Remember what Jesus said about the Holy Spirit in John 14:26?

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”

The Holy Spirit definitely knows much more and moves quicker than our mind. This means that if you’re dependent on the Holy Spirit, you’re likely to have a greater discernment and sharper perception.

You know those promptings in your heart? The recurring verses that come up in your thoughts when you’re troubled? The unsettling feeling that something is not quite right?

Well, those “heart murmurs” are showing you something. They’re from the Holy Spirit, leading you on the right path and to do the right thing at the right time.

I don’t know about you but I’d rather let the Holy Spirit work in my heart. I realized that it’s so important to be Spirit-led than to try to use my puny brain to reason. I mean…how can my head be wiser than the Spirit?

This reminds me of the time I was led to receive Christ. I wasn’t prepared to but somehow when the pastor prayed, my heart told me to stop reasoning but just accept. And I’m so glad I did!

Friend, if you’ve been thinking a lot with your head, using your understanding to rationalize every situation but not getting anywhere, it’s time to stop.

Ask the Lord to give you a hearing heart, like what King Solomon did (see 1 Kings 3:9). Then start praying in tongues because that’ll cause you to become more sensitive to the Holy Spirit and hear Him more accurately.

And more and more, you’ll understand how it’s possible to truly trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding.
