DRIVEN BY ETERNAL PURPOSE
Theme: GUARDING YOUR HEART
Beloved Partners, good morning. We shall be looking at the greatest work of guarding the heart that God has given you.
Proverbs 4:23 (KJV)
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
Guard your heart with all diligence, all wisdom, all faith, all means used by you to protect it. Nobody can do that for you. It is your total responsibility. The time you live privately and alone, the time when you are lonely, how do you behave? Do you know that God sees you all that time too? How do you live?
The heart is the dwelling place of either God or Satan. There is no moment the heart is without either of the two. Unfortunately, God gave you freedom of daily choices and it is that freedom God shall also use to judge you and me.
Again God will never be involved in heart choices by force. Satan will however force himself into your heart the moment you consent and open up for the him. He is more forceful to occupy your heart while God simply appeals to your free conscience to be with you.
This is why most people abandoned their faith because they entertain the forceful one to drive them. Satan and his demons can help you to cast the Bible faith and love of God away from your heart. Many stopped loving God yet they will face Him on the unavoidable day of judgement.
Proverbs 4:23 (KJV)
Out of your heart comes God kind of life or demonic kind of life. Choice is what you make. If you let loose your heart then anything can fill it. You are responsible. Yes you are.
Therefore God demands for your very responsibility to keep your heart for Him. God will never come down from heaven to guard your heart. Satan will neither do likewise from hell fire, but will force himself into you.
When you become born of God or again in Christ Jesus, your passions and body appetites will still be there. Satan will try to suggest your old life back into your heart. But you daily invite the Lord Jesus and He grants you His free righteousness again and again till sin becomes detestable in your heart.
NB: Pray for great and successful glorious Easter conventions and Holy week world wide. Let the souls know that the Lord Jesus died for them and rose again to give them eternal life. Ignoring Him is inviting eternal death.
May God make you ready for this topic as we study together Guarding your Heart.
Pray: Lord God my Almighty Eternal Father, thank you for the gift of all life I have from you. I totally surrender my heart to you that you dwell inside of me as you are my only eternal life in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
May God bless your day as you live guarding your heart, while seeking and saving the lost souls in love.
Always Love and Prayers,
Archbishop Dr Mark Kambalazaza.
