Have you heard the song sang by Jacquimo that inspires Thumbelina to quit whining  and start finding her way back home with nothing more than her heart to guide her? There’s a line there saying “You’re sure to do impossible things if you follow your heart”. Well, I used to believe that when I was a kid,  it’s kinda convincing and realistic.
For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.       1 John 3:20 (NIV)
Trusting our own heart is not what God wanted us to do, He wanted us to trust and follow His will. God knows everything, even the things that is best for us, that’s why having faith in Him also includes trusting Him even in the very tough circumstances because He knows us, He knows the thing that we can’t or can bear, He’s always in control, He knows what’s best for us.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all you ways acknowledge him, and he will make your path straight.  Proverbs 3: 5-6 (NIV)

Though we know the difference right from wrong, in some way we still can fail because we’re only human that is capable of falling. That’s why in our every ways, seeking His Will will still be the best thing that we could do and surely we’ll never fail.

Above all else, guard you heart, for it is the wellspring of life.  Proverbs 4:23 (NIV)
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his step. Proverbs 16:9 (NIV)
