KEEP THEM IN THE MIDST OF YOUR HEART

KEEP THEM IN THE MIDST OF YOUR HEART

Proverbs 4:20-23 (NKJV) 20 My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.

What is in your heart today?  You will know right away by what you are thinking about all day long.  Jesus said in Matthew 12:34, ”…for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”  So, is your mind filled with worry, and bitterness, or is it filled with the peace of God and His joy?  What comes out of your mouth?  This shows us what we have put in our heart.  This is not to put us down, but for us to make a decision of change; a decision for growth.

Here it says to put God’s Word in the midst of our heart.  Get God’s Word in you.  You might ask, “How?”  Well, here is how I do it.  Instead of listening to the news, I listen to teachings, or the Bible on CD.  I download different podcasts of good Bible teachers, and I listen to “Good News,” instead of all the bad news of the day.

Little decisions can change your life for the good.  I heard one person say it like this: “If you like where you are with your life today, then do not do anything different.  But if you are not satisfied and you want your life to change, then start with some changes today so that your tomorrows can be different.

So I encourage you to get God’s Word in your heart, and let it push all the worries and fears out.  That is truly “Good Medicine!”

Confession:  I keep God’s Word in my heart by thinking about it during the course of the day.  I also am making a decision to listen to good stuff and not all the junk that is out there.
