It’s Wednesday ladies and I found that I recently had an issue accessing my email. I’m not sure if I typed the wrong key when I first created the password, or if I just can’t simply remember. Then I thought, has my account been hacked? I ended up becoming frustrated, and made sure I took the proper security measures for everything that I could, my home, car, emails, the kids things and work stuff. Notice the things I mentioned………no where did I mention my heart. Is my heart not just as valuable, if not more than the things I make an effort in guarding? A few weeks ago I read a devotional from Wisdom Hunters about this very thing. The scripture was:
Lets emphasize the EVERYTHING part; everything we do flows from our heart. Think about your hearts’ current state, is it healthy? Not just from a medical or physiology stand point, but from a spiritual aspect. Is it filled with the Holy Spirit, does the fruits of the spirit dwell there? After all, this is the very place our hopes and dreams come from, yet the place that can be broken. The very place where we speak life into someone else, yet the place that rest forgiveness that steals life. The very place that houses and casts away fears. The devotional speaks on submitting our hearts to Christ and allowing Him to guard our hearts. What better security than God himself, but just like we do with our emails every once in a while maintenance is required, a heart check is required, what seems to be flowing from your Heart?
You brood of snakes! How could evil men like you speak what is good and right? For whatever is in your heart determines what you say. ~Matthew 12:34
A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. ~Luke 6:45.
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things. ~Galatians 5:22-23
Lets work on getting our Hearts Right Ladies!!
