This last few days God has really been talking to me about guarding my heart. It is such an important aspect in life. The reason I say this, is when you don’t guard your heart you let a lot of ugly things into your life, and ending up giving your heart to a lot of people. Proverbs says it so nicely: “Guard your heart, because from it comes the wellspring of life”. Scripture also speaks that the heart is deceitful and “the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them.”
I’m saying all these things with a lot of respect, but what I want to come down to is what you fill yourself with? The things you feed yourself with spiritually, you’ll become. That is why living in the Spirit is so hard to attain, because we have a flesh that also has its desires.
Living through the Spirit is a challenge, but rewarding at the end.
