The heart of man is greatly affected by his moral deeds. If a man acts immorally, the conscience is activated and there is necessarily a heart of condemnation. And, God knows all the things active in the heart (good and bad) and therefore administers this condemnation.
Conversely, if a man acts morally, then there is great complacency and confidence administered by God so that there is power in his prayer life. And, no good thing will God withhold from them that walk uprightly.
In conclusion, your heart can choose to follow the Spirit unto confidence or it can choose to follow the flesh unto condemnation. Hereby we are free from condemnation by our deeds done in the Spirit! Otherwise, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
