PROTECT YOUR HEART
– Proverbs 4:23
What has not entered your heart cannot enter your life. Your heart is one of the gates to your life, therefore, you must do all within your power to protect what flows into your heart. If you allow pollution into your heart, your life will soon begin to show those fruits.
There are instances in life when God begins to show you those things He can’t work with in your life, things hindering Him. You must begin to make correct adjustments and allow whatever He is using to bring that change. Sometimes, He can use the system you are in to correct you. He may decide to use your boss, your colleagues or even your junior. One prayer you must always pray is that God will show you things in your heart that are grieving Him.
You cannot be bigger than your heart under God. The size of a man before God is the size of his heart. You remember the point at which God rejected Saul; the state of his heart was a major factor. In 1 Sam. 13:4, when God found David, He said to Prophet Samuel, “I have found a man after my own heart”. At another time in the house of Jesse when God came for his sons, the quality God was looking for was THE STATE OF THEIR HEART. 1 Sam. 16:7 says, “You look on the outward, I look at the heart”. You cannot separate the heart of a man from what he can become under God. God looks at your heart.
PRAYER: Lord, show me things in my heart that are grieving You. Amen.
