BEST OF LIFE IS IN THE HEART!

Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23)

The best of life is not in your education or the amount of degrees you have acquired in life but is in the heart. No matter your education and degrees acquired, when your heart is not refined by the Holy Spirit, your ways become crude and crooked in life. The Bible says in the opening text keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that the best of life is found in the heart of man. Why will a professor be an addict smoker, drunkard and womanizer in life? It is because the heart is unrefined by the Holy Spirit in life forever.

It is the heart that determines the by-product of a man in life. When the heart is refined by the Holy Spirit, it brings forth issues of the best of life. But when it is unrefined, it brings forth crooked and worst of life in man. That is why Jesus Christ said in Matthew 12:35 thus, “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.” Therefore, both the good and the evil treasures of life are produced and determined by the heart of man in life. The best and the worst of life are in the heart of man in life forever.

It is the Holy Spirit that has the power and the enablement to bring forth the best of life from the heart in life. It is not your education or the information you receive in life but God’s Spirit. That is the reason why the Bible says in Proverbs 20:27, “The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the inner depths of his heart.” In fact, man’s spirit is indeed God’s lamp that searches the inner depths of a man’s heart to bring forth good treasures in life. When the spirit of a man is not in sync with God’s Spirit, the heart of man becomes dead in life. You need God’s Spirit to bring forth the best of life from the heart of man in life forever.  

Daily Tip: Every Christian needs the Holy Spirit to bring forth the best of life from his heart daily and forever in life. Shalom!

Golden Text: He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water (John 7:38).
