Topic:  I Am Guarded

SCRIPTURE: Proverbs 4:23 
Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.

As a Christian, you are to constantly read and meditate on God’s Word so it can abide in your hearts. When your heart is filled with God’s Word, you are protecting yourself from everything opposite of what the Word tells you.

Guarding your heart is keeping you away from false doctrine, deceit, and unbelief. Your actions come directly from the things you think and believe. If your heart is overflowing with the right things, you will surely have the God-kind motives and you will move in that direction. Likewise, if your heart is overflowing with the wrong things, you will have bad motives and head down the wrong path.

What you listen to, and watch has a tremendous impact on your actions. Therefore, it is extremely important to load your heart with God’s Word. What you speak over your life determines what is in your heart.

“The tongue has the power of life and death and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21). Your heart holds the concerns of your life when you don’t load up on
God’s Word and this is why it is very hard to live a joyous life. Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10). When you find yourself in a bad situation, you can guard your heart by meditating on what God says about you.
