“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23

There are many millionaires, wealthy people but their heart never said they are rich. You can see someone today and to you he is great but his heart is saying he is not great.

What your heart is telling you is what you are.  Look at your life – many times, people see you as happy whereas your heart is telling you that you are sad and that sadness translates to everything you do. If you want to read the Bible, your heart tells you not to read. If you are in the House of God, your heart will tell you are not there. When your heart begins to think, ‘I don’t know what will happen to me next’, you become sick. What is your heart telling you?

The heart is the contact point for the Holy Spirit and for evil spirits. That is why you have to capture your heart for God (2 Corinthians 10:5). How can you capture your heart? By meditation. Most of us have been living in the thinking processing but do not know how to meditate. There is a difference. Meditation is about God; thinking is about our problems. What are you thinking about? Your life is what you think about all day long. People can see you as a poor man but if your heart is telling you “you are great” indeed, you are great.

King Solomon said, “He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.” (Proverbs 16:32)

You can start today to arrest your heart and get it to your side by meditating on God’s Word. The more you think about what you read in the Bible, the more familiar you become with God’s voice in your heart. That is why you should listen to your heart because that is where God speaks to you.

THE SACRIFICE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

“There is no time to do what is right. We must set our heart to obey the Word of God, all the time. God’s kind of lifestyle calls us to do what is right in the sight of God at all times, even though it is contrary to what we naturally want to do. Choosing to do what is right is a great test to the flesh.

What is the sacrifice of righteousness? Choosing to do God’s will rather than our own. When our flesh says hate, God says love. It takes sacrificial love to love your enemy and to pray for them. These are the weapons of righteousness. This is the sacrifice that Jesus looks at and rewards. Even though that might not be a grand, or outward sacrifice, it is what Jesus values.”

LIFE ANEW

“When we talk of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we are talking of the rare opportunity He has given to all believers to experience a new beginning – a situation in which every dead area of our lives receives life anew.

We are dead to our past and alive to our future. Sin’s power over us is broken and we now put on Christ’s new life: we live in Him, move in Him and have our being in Him. Herein lies the significance of resurrection.”

THE LORD HAS CHASED YOUR ENEMY

“How many of us like the people within the dying city, struck by famine, give in to fear, desperation and refuse to venture outside when God has chased our enemy away? Fear can cripple and torment us, and rob us of life’s opportunities. How many minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and even years have been wasted due to fear.”
