PROTECT YOUR HEART WITH GOD’S TRUTH

PROTECT YOUR HEART WITH
GOD’S TRUTH
– Pastor Chris

Thursday, May 19, 2022

My child, listen and be wise. Keep your heart on the right course (Proverbs 23:19 NLT).

There’re things that some people do that invite demons into their lives without them knowing. They yield themselves to the influence of demons through certain kinds of music, and dance, among several other things. For example, Christians who visit pornographic websites open themselves to demons.

In the Old Testament, God forbade His children from looking at the nakedness of others (Read Leviticus 18). Such things aren’t acceptable to God. They’re not consistent with the life of righteousness. Think about it: How does Christ come into the heart of a man? When you believe in Jesus Christ and confess His lordship, He comes into your heart in an instant. That’s the same way a man can open his heart to demons when he exposes himself to things that are inspired by demons. Protect and keep yourself from all unrighteousness.

The Bible says, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:18). Refuse to harbour unclean thoughts. Use the Word to purify your heart of anger, bitterness and malice.

The Word of God is a cleanser. As you meditate on the Word, you’re cleansed from ALL unrighteousness: “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you” (John 15:3). Live as a Christian. Our theme verse says to keep your heart on the right course, on God’s truth. Protect your mind and spirit with the Word.

In Proverbs 23:26 (NIV), God says, “My son, give me your heart and let your eyes delight in my ways.” Let your heart delight in His Word, in His righteousness, and live a life worthy of Him—pleasing Him in every way. Hallelujah!

CONFESSION

Satan, the god of this world, has nothing in me! The Lord has given me dominion over the flesh, to guard my heart and mind with all diligence. No unwholesome thought can take root in my heart. My spirit, my mind, and my body are yielded to the Word and purified by the Word every day, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
