Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
We think of the heart as the centre of our emotions. But it is more; it is the origin of our desires, imaginations, motives and intentions. That is why God says, ‘Above all… guard your heart…it is the well-spring of life.’
So, how is your heart today? Do you get upset easily? Do you constantly compare and resent? When you hear gossip, do you silence it or spread it? What kind of thoughts do you entertain? Your answer depends on the state of your heart.
Only by going directly to the source and cleaning out the pipeline, can you get a pure product. We reverse things by trying to clean up the outside first. But it does not work! If a tree produced bad fruit you would not just treat the fruit, would you? No, you would treat the root! Likewise, it is not enough just to try and change your bad habits; you must go to the heart of the problem – which is the problem of the heart! The Psalmist realized this, so he prayed, ‘Create in me a clean heart, O God’ (Psalm 51:10). Think maybe you should pray that too?
So – just how IS your Heart? Think on it and use The Healing Codes to solve ANY issue of your heart.
