The Light Daily Devotional – Your Heart and the Issues of Life

Focus: Your Heart and the Issues of Life


Every issue of life takes its source from the hearts of men. To guard your heart with all diligence is to save your life from reproach and preserve your glorious destiny!

Scriptural Reference

“Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23 NKJV

Everything you see men do in various aspects of life starts with a thought process. The evil we see in men occurs because they put their evil thoughts into action. Similarly, those men who act righteously and live a life of integrity do so not because evil thoughts do not enter their hearts but because they guard their hearts and silence the evil thought process in them.

It wasn’t as if the king’s food was not attractive to Daniel. A strong young man like Joseph will naturally yield to the advances made by Potiphar’s wife. David didn’t lay his hand on King Saul even though he sought to kill him at all costs. These men were able to live correctly because they guarded their hearts. To have the life God wants to give you, you need to seek God’s help through His word and guard your heart diligently. 

Is the word of God hidden in your heart?

Lord! Please help me to always remember your word in my heart; that I might not sin against you in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Emphasis: The nature of your heart defines your actions!

Have a superb Thursday!
