Guard Your Heart

Guard Your Heart

  • Post Category:Ponder

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
Proverbs 4:23, NLT

The Bible tells us that the heart is where the issues of life spring forth. What we allow to enter our hearts will affect our thoughts, actions and even our bodies. In other words, the condition of one’s heart determines the course of one’s life!

That is why Jesus, who bequeathed to us His peace, tells us, “…Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27). So if we want to walk in His peace and rest, we need to guard our hearts and not let them spiral into negative thoughts, worry and fear. The Book of Wisdom also tells us that a peaceful and cheerful heart promotes health (Proverbs 17:22).

Beloved, there may be many things in our lives that we want to “guard”, such as our families, health or careers. But God wants us to guard our hearts above all else, and He will guard the rest!
