Know then in your heart that, as a man disciplines his son, the Lord your God disciplines you.

But I know that you do not have the love of God within you.

Lust after immorality:

Proverbs 6:24-25

to preserve you from the evil woman,
from the smooth tongue of the adulteress.
Do not desire her beauty in your heart,
and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes;

Proverbs 6:24-25  
Haste to have your own say before God:

Ecclesiastes 5:1-3

5:1  Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil. Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes with much business, and a fool's voice with many words.

It is in your mouth and in your heart, so that you can do it.

Deuteronomy 30:11-14

But the righteousness based on faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down) or “‘Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).
