What is in your heart?

“O my son, give me your heart.
May your eyes take delight in following my ways”.    Prov. 23:26 NLT

The Bible gives us good advice in Proverbs 3:1-8;

“My son, don’t forget my instruction.
Let your heart guard my commands,
 because they will help you live a long time
and provide you with well-being.

 Don’t let loyalty and faithfulness leave you.
Bind them on your neck;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
 Then you will find favor and approval
in the eyes of God and humanity.

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart;
don’t rely on your own intelligence.
 Know him in all your paths,
and he will keep your ways straight.
 Don’t consider yourself wise.

Fear the LORD and turn away from evil.
 Then your body will be healthy
and your bones strengthened”.  (CEB)

There are many phrases in the book of Proverbs which teaches us the importance of filling our heart with good things (Prov. 12:13-14, 15:4, 16:21-24). 

“Words satisfy the mind as much as fruit does the stomach;
good talk is as gratifying as a good harvest. 

 Words kill, words give life;
they're either poison or fruit—you choose”.   Prov. 18:20-21 MSG

We are creating things in our life by the words we speak, good or bad…..death and life are in the power of the tongue.

Over and over again, we see how important it is for believers to fill their heart with the Word of God.

Remember His Word says that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and the Word of God is spirit and life.
