I started preaching a new series in church today and really feel that it is one of my most important teaching series to date.
The series is all about the heart; how we can have a hardened heart and how we can soften that heart again.
The cornerstone verse in this series is going to be Proverbs 4 v 23; a verse that is having a significant impact on my life at the moment.
The New Living Translation really “nails” this verse; Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
Can you see how important this verse is?
It says that the course of your life (ill or healed, prosperous or poor, joyful or sad,
feeling acceptance or rejection) is determined by your heart.
Your heart is your core belief system, the things you think without thinking about it!
That is an amazing truth, telling us that our life is going the way we are believing.
The good news is that we can change our life for the better by changing our heart, or changing our core belief system.
There are a number of fundamental axioms that we must hold to in order to build the rest of our belief system upon; that God loves us unconditionally, that we have been forgiven because of the finished work of Jesus Christ, and because of our faith in Him and His work we are made righteous.
The love of God, our forgiveness and our righteousness are the foundations that we build our heart on; build on these foundations and the course of your life will improve.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you love me, that I am forgiven and that I have been made righteous”,
Proverbs 4 v 23…..Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life
