Proverbs 4:23 (GWT)
Guard your heart more than anything else,
because the source of your life flows from it.
As a believer, we are challenged to protect our hearts. Remember, as humans, we are a three-part being. We are a spirit, we have a soul, and we live in a body. (1 Thess 5:23).
Our heart in the Bible is our soul and our spirit. Of course, our soul is our mind, will, and emotions. The wisdom of Proverbs to to protect your heart. How do you do it? By protecting the entrances to your heart or soul, your eyes, ears, nose, mouth.. Your senses.
If you want to go deeper with God, you can’t watch what the world watches. You can’t say what the world says. You can’t listen to what the world listens to. You’ve got to surround yourself with God things. Gods ways are the way to eternal life. Gods ways are the way to long life.
As you go about your day today, make an effort to protect your heart. When you do, your spirit will become more sensitive to hearing Gods voice when He directs you.
