When we do this with the word of God there is healing and peace that the world cannot give. The comfort of truly knowing God’s love will cover us enough. This takes us opening our heart and letting it penetrate so we can feel a change and people can see Christ like behavior. It is easy to let it in on the surface, but if it doesn’t go deep our faith is fragile.
Verse 23 says, “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your own life.”
We are lead by the emotion of our heart; just imagine how amazing we appear to people when we are full and living by the Spirit. There are so many stories of people that hearts were focused on God and no matter what it brought life and hope to them as they suffered as Christ did without wavering. I truly feel there is so much more we can acquire from fully committing to learn from God and then surrendering our lives to live out our faith. Amen
