Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
The fire alarm has just been pulled… you have 60 seconds… what do you take? 1, 2..
Take this: Fashion a breastplate for making decisions Ex. 28:15 Don’t we wish it was that easy, strap on a breastplate, make the right choices!! But maybe in a way it is… what is the breastplate called in the armor of God?.. The breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God–that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 1 Cor. 1:30 Allow your heart to be guarded by, and flooded with Jesus our righteousness. The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life Prov. 10:11 and it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks. Luke 6:45 Just as Aaron and his sons were instructed to have some of the blood put on their ear lobe, their thumb and their big toe.. (Ex. 29:20) sounds kind of odd but it was a symbol, a reminder to have ears sensitive to God and His Word, to have hands and feet dedicated to serving others on God’s behalf. In the same way if we want to make good decisions we need to remember to keep Jesus as the breastplate of our heart fully dedicated to knowing and obeying His Word hiding it within our hearts (Psalm 119:11) for it is in our hearts that we humans plan our course, but the LORD establishes our steps. Prov. 16:9 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7 Jesus you are the Word of life a lamp for my feet, and a light on my path (Psalm 119:105) guard and guide my heart and mind today to make good, Godly decisions.
