Spread the love

Proverbs 4:23
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

The heart which also known as your subconscious mind is very powerful force that dictate your action and attitude towards people and your environment.
That is why the Bible said in Matt. 12:34b Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

The power of the heart is seen in the scriptures description below;

as water reflects the face, so a man’s heart reflect the man”.

The state of your heart determines the state of your life.
Your heart is the processing room where all you received through the windows and doors of the heart are being processed.

According to Dr. David Allen ‘ “The heart is the decision making center where all of our choices both good and evil are decided ”
It is what motivate us in our attitude and action even though we might not be aware of what is influencing us.

Before God blesses a man He checks his heart (Heb. 6:12). For we to safeguard our heart we need to guide what we see and what we hear.

The eyes is the door to the heart while the ear is the window of the heart. We are the sum total of what we see and what we hear. The internet, circular music & music videos are full of perverting images & lyrics to corrupt our mind.

I heard a story of how a teenage girl fell into the sin of masturbation by just coming across an Adult video pack. For you to safeguard your heart you need to guide what you see and what you hear.

That is why Job make a covenant with his eyes in Job 31:1 never to look at a woman lustfully.

There is something’s you see unintentionally that you don’t need to give it a second look, giving it a second look might send the picture to your subconscious mind which might end up polluting your heart.

The lyrics you listen to matters a lot, there are some circular song you listen to you feel like getting high with something or sometimes triggers immoral thought.

Music is very powerful that is why in heaven we have angels in charge of sounds and music. Every popular music is sponsored by a spirit. Both gospel and circular song. What you listen to affect you either positively or negatively.

Guide your heart with the word of God, Let it be the filter you use to filter what goes into to your heart. listen to anointed messages & songs, read spiritual and educative books and watch videos that will add value to your life both spiritually and mentally (Phil. 4:8).

Hope the Lord has spoken to you with this little write up. Do share with your friends.

God bless you.
