Guarding our Hearts!

Proverbs 4:23 (New Living Translation)

“ Guard your heart above all else,
for it determines the course of your life.”

“It doesn’t happen overnight, it has taken time to get to this point, a slow series of compromises eventually taking you to a place you never thought you would go, doing something you said you would never do, and when you are there, somehow it all makes total sense to you. Pride tells us we would never do that, and maybe we wouldn’t in just a spur of the moment, but what happens in certain circumstances that you are faced with day after day? At what point do you know something is not right? How can a person get trapped in this kind of situation that will lead to destruction? What does it mean to guard your heart and mind? I have known of well meaning pastors counseling with women in the congregation that end up in affairs. I don’t believe they start out with this in mind, but something happens in the process. Do you think the Holy Spirit nudges that pastor “be careful, this is dangerous.” I believe He does, maybe like a yellow flashing sign in our spirit that tells us “caution”. I am also convinced that pastors, men in general should not counsel with women. We need wise women in our churches that reach out to other women. Who knows better how to help them than Godly women. My spirit is so passionate about guarding our hearts and minds. We must look to Jesus as our counselor, remember He is the greatest of all. We must seek Him in prayer and ask for guidance, if we need help or know someone that needs help, then seek out these Godly women, they are in our church and they are in our families. Be so very careful who you reach out to, the enemy of our soul is always out to steal, kill and destroy. Lets pray for each other and stand strong in Jesus. We will overcome!
