Earlier I was having my quiet time and God brought me back to the verse in Proverbs where it says we should ‘Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life’. (Proverbs 4:23)
I don’t know about you, but if you asked me, I would say I’m pretty good at guarding my heart. I’m not really one of those people who wears my heart on my sleeve. Or goes around expressing my thoughts and feelings about every little detail of my life. It can sometimes take a while for me to share my heart thoughts with good friends. So it seems like I’m guarding my heart right?
But God showed me that there’s so much more to guarding your heart than just being choosy with who you have feelings for.
It’s about filling out heart with thoughts of Him. Choosing to dwell in His presence. Seeking His kingdom. So much more.
It’s also about being careful with who we trust with the intricate details of who we are. And the only person truly worthy of this trust is Jesus. He knows our hearts. Our thoughts. Our dreams and hopes. He longs to be the desire of our hearts. And His love never fails. Never disappoints and is always faithful.
We don’t have to worry about whether we can trust Him or not. For He is who we base our definition of trust on. If only we would let him in. Let your guard down. Let Jesus in. And he will keep your heart more precious than anything.
