Joseph Prince Devotional 19th September 2021 Sunday Message
Topic: Guard Your Heart
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Proverbs 4:23 NIV
The Bible tells us that the heart is where the issues of life spring forth. What we allow to enter our hearts will affect our thoughts, actions, and even our bodies. In other words, the condition of one’s heart determines the course of one’s life!
That is why Jesus, who bequeathed to us His peace, tells us, “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (see John 14:27). So if we want to walk in His peace and rest, we need to guard our hearts and not let them spiral into negative thoughts, worry, and fear. The Book of Wisdom also tells us that a peaceful and cheerful heart promotes health (see Prov. 17:22 NIV).
Beloved, there may be many things in our lives that we want to “guard”, such as our health or careers, but God wants us to guard our hearts above all else, and He will guard the rest!
This devotional is taken from the book Reign in Life—90 Powerful Inspirations for Extraordinary Breakthroughs.
If you or a loved one are facing a health issue, know that we are praying for you. We would also like to encourage you to read “How do I walk in faith and wisdom as I look to the Lord for healing?” to help you build your faith as you wait for your breakthrough.
