KEEPING YOUR HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE!
Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23).
The heart is the engine room of a man in life. When you allow wrong information into your heart, it goes a long way to affect your life negatively. That is the reason why a Christian is expected to keep his heart with all diligence in life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. The heart is a very delicate organ in the human body that is being controlled by the brain in life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to always keep his heart with all diligence in life. A Christian is hereby admonished to keep his heart with all diligence by using God’s Word as a yardstick in life forever.
The brain controls and gives information to the heart in life. Whatever information the heart receives, it processes and reveals it out in life. That is why Jesus Christ said in Luke 6:45 thus, “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” The heart is a processing room that determines the action of an individual in life. A good heart is expected to bring forth good and profitable treasures worthy of emulation in life. A Christian should learn to keep his heart with all diligence in life forever.
One of the best ways to keep your heart with all diligence is to use God’s Word as a mirror of life. It is only the Word of God that can keep the heart with all diligence in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” In fact, the Word of God is indeed a lamp to the feet of a Christian and a shinning light to his path in order to radiate God’s glory on his way in life. God’s Word has the potency and grace to purge, sharpen and keep the heart with all diligence in life. Therefore, every Christian should endeavor to make God’s Word his daily mirror in life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to use God’s Word as his daily mirror of life in order to keep his heart with all diligence forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).
