We’re not always going to get what we want. The question is, when this happens, how will we respond?
Proverbs 4:23 says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” In this verse is a key truth, which we often overlook. If every part of our lives is directly influenced by the state of our heart, we have some serious work to do in guarding and maintaining it.
To find out the condition of your heart, simply listen to yourself. Hear what you’re saying. Watch what you’re doing. The state of your heart will be revealed in the details of your life. The devil’s goal is to poison our hearts so that we, in turn, sow the same unhealthiness into the lives of others.
Israel went to battle the Philistines but they weren't Spiritually ready for battle and lost. They blamed God. So in an effort to please Him, they get the Arc of the Covenant to pray to – a symbol of God. But, if our hearts aren't right we won’t really connect with Him.
It is my prayer that you came here today to press restart so God can do something amazing in your life. God wants to do amazing things, but in order for us to do them, we have to look past ourselves and start paying attention to the people around us.
Faith is the language of prayer. Whatever you ask for when you pray, believe that you will receive. When your heart and mouth line up with the will of God, your problem will be resolved in due time and the will of God will be manifested in your life.
