Good morning! I want to start by asking you a question. What is the most important thing in your life? That is a tough question to answer first thing in the morning. You may want to get that second cup of coffee first!
Proverbs 4:23 says this, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” What God’s Word is telling us is to keep focused on the right things. The enemy wants to do anything to make you distracted and to keep our focus off of Jesus Christ. He wants to strip away your joy and peace in your life. He wants you to beat your self up over past failures and sins. This is when we are to rise up and guard our hearts.
1 Timothy 6:12 Paul tells us, “fight the good fight of faith, to hold on to eternal life.” Keep your guard up! Lord, help us to be firmly planted in your truths. Our hope is in you. Give us wisdom to resist Satan temptation and lies. Help us to guard our hearts above all else. Thank you Lord.
