Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
Guard your heart. If the enemy can get to your heart then he can destroy your life. Everything you do flows from your heart. In the bible the heart is more than a piece of muscle that pumps blood around the body. The heart is your inner man, it’s the make up of who you are, it’s the control centre for what you think and do. Often things can touch our hearts in a powerful way, a kind word or an act of love that melts the heart. On the other hand a hurtful word or experience can damage and break our hearts. It’s the latter that we need to guard against. We need to guard our hearts and protect them. So how do we do that – Philippians 4:7 tells us….And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus….when you allow his peace to come into your heart no matter what you face, when you acknowledge God is with you, loves you and you remain in faith. You can come out of the storm with your heart in tact. Guard your heart.
Prayer Today: That we would protect our hearts. That we would allow peace to guard us.
