Vigilant Watch Over Your Heart

by Hazel Straub

Keep vigilant watch over your heart;
    that’s where life starts.
Don’t talk out of both sides of your mouth;
    avoid careless banter, white lies, and gossip.
Keep your eyes straight ahead;
    ignore all sideshow distractions.
Watch your step,
    and the road will stretch out smooth before you.
Look neither right nor left;
    leave evil in the dust. (Proverbs 4:23-27 MSG)

The decisions you make flow out of what you believe, think and speak. What you decree with your mouth, either positive or negative, determines your actions that will fulfill your destiny and will bring you a harvest. This includes gossip and complaining or expressing praise and thanksgiving to God.

When you consult God, listen, obey and meditate on his Word, it will change your future and affect those that God brings into your life. Carefully, guard what you allow into your heart, watch, listen, or participate. What you think and concentrate your attention on, produces either life or death.

    Thank you for the reference from Proverbs 4. I plan to read this passage in a few more translations and meditate on what it means. God’s best to you, always. David
