Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flows the springs of life (Proverbs 4:23).
God is constantly trying to plant new seeds of victory inside of you, and your heart is the soil for those seeds. If you harbor bitterness, jealousy, or pride in your heart, those seeds won’t be able to take root and develop in your life.
Jesus told the story of how the enemy comes to steal the seed of God’s Word through temptations, cares, and anxieties. But you are good ground for the seed of the Word when you guard your heart by standing and believing that God’s promises will come to pass - even when the circumstances don’t agree. Don’t allow discouragement to affect your faith. Stand and guard your heart, knowing that through faith and patience, you will inherit all of God’s promises for your life!
