I’ve come to discover that people who have strong hearts don’t fall sick. No matter how deadly a disease may be, if their heart rejects it, it can’t flow through their body. Whatever is not approved in the heart never gets through to the body. In Proverbs 4:23, the bible says, “Guard your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life”. That could also mean that when you find an issue in your life, then you’ve let a guard down.
Another translation of the Bible translated heart as mind. In other words, be careful how you think, because your life is shaped by your thoughts. But I’ve come to discover that there’s no way to guard your thoughts in this evil world except through faith in God’s word. The bible says, “The weapon of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself above the knowledge of God”. Did you see that? You won’t be able to guard your mind against evil imaginations without an accurate knowledge of the word of God. That’s how Jesus overcame Satan’s deception when He came out of the wilderness.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; BE WORD GUARDED; THOSE WHO TRUST THE WORD TO GUIDE THEM ALSO TURN TO THE WORD TO GUARD THEM. GOD’S WORD DOES NOT ONLY GUIDE, IT ALSO GUARDS. Have a most fruitful weekend, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don’t forget to “like” it. And if you really like it, please share it!
