Proverbs 4:23 NLT
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
Many situations that come across our paths that we have to make quick decisions about, and each of them point either to our strengths and our weaknesses. That is why it is vital to guard the places where critical decisions will be made. That would be our heart.
The heart actually determines the direction of our lives, our spiritual heart. In the desires of our heart are the direction or the lack of direction we need. Think about the condition and the content of your heart. We will need resources that are clear and reliable so that we can deal with the hard stuff of life. That is why I asset that we must make some decisions before we have to make the real decisions. God is the one who will guide us… if we let him.
If we guard our heart as well as give God our heart, we will go the right way where God can bless us and those around us. He will also open the right direction for us to go. We need to see what God sees and hear what God says. Our heart is the filter that we see and hear God through.
Turn in to God. Guard your heart!
Luke 6:45 NLT
A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.
