Feed Your Spirit

Oftentimes, we tend to be lead by our emotions, what we can see, feel, touch, or experience in our flesh. Our hearts, just as our eyes can be easily deceived and misled. Following our heart means that we fly by the seat of our pants or move to beat of our own drum, trusting only in ourselves rather than in God. This mindset, more times than not, leads us straight to heartache and sin. Guard your heart, tame your soul and feed your spirit. Proverbs 4:23 commends us to, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.”

In the end, be diligent and ensure that your heart, mind and soul does not become a tool of the enemy. To do this, Philippians 4:6-7 tells us, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
