1055th -- Message On Guarding Our Hearts 


It is important in life that we not allow what is going on all around us 
to enter into us. We may face negative challenges that try to discourage 
our hearts or we may encounter negative people who have nothing good or 
positive to say about anything and we sometimes allow those situations to 
impact how we feel towards our life. We should remember that it is within 
our control what we allow to infiltrate our being. We have the ability to 
guard our hearts and only allow good, positive, uplifting, overcoming and 
encouraging thoughts and feelings to enter into our hearts and minds. We 
don't have to attend to the negativity that is around us. We can choose 
to be at peace despite the storms that seem to be raging all around us. 
We can trust that God is in control of our life and have faith that all 
things will work together for our good. 
(Proverbs 4:23) (Proverbs 17:22) (Romans 8:28)

Guarding our hearts and minds is necessary for us to be at peace in life. 
If we choose to think on every negative thought that comes our way, we 
will soon worry ourselves into sickness. We will inevitably manifest 
those negative thoughts into our reality. The things that we feared will 
become a reality in our lives because we allowed those negative thoughts 
to become worries which will take root in our hearts and become a reality 
in our future. Our thoughts are so important. When we choose to agree 
with God and see ourselves as victors and not victims, we are in essence 
binding every negative thought and bringing them under our control and 
seeing ourselves triumphant just as God sees us. We have to believe that 
God's Word is true for ourselves if we expect to overcome the negativity 
that surrounds us. We have to believe that we can bind the bad and loose 
the good. We have to believe that our destiny isn't meant to be bogged 
down, but rather it is meant to soar, to succeed, to triumph and reach 
every victory that God has instilled within each of us. 
(Matthew 6:27-30) (Romans 3:4) (Matthew 16:19)

Be encouraged to not give in to the negativity that surrounds you. Don't 
listen to the naysayers, don't pay attention to the haters, don't allow 
the pessimism of others to impact how you see and act towards your own 
life. See yourself as victorious, as lifted up, as blessed, as above only 
and not beneath, as the head and not the tail and most importantly see 
yourself as a loved child of God who is forgiven, redeemed and set free 
from every bondage. Believe for good things, confess your blessings and 
Praise the Lord for the many times that He has delivered you in times 
past. Remember that you are not your past and know that your future has 
unlimited potential. Believe this truth and receive it for yourself. 
(Ephesians 6:10-14) (Isaiah 61:3) (Romans 8:32-39)

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 37:3-6 “Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the 
land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and 
He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the 
LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass. And He shall bring 
forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.” 

Philippians 3:13-14 “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but 
this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching
forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the 
prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” 

Psalm 118:24 “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice 
and be glad in it.” 

Psalm 23:1-4 “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to 
lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He 
restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His 
name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, 
I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they 
comfort me.” 

Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against 
you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: 
therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou 
mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey His voice, and 
that thou mayest cleave unto Him: for He is thy life, and the length of 
thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy 
fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
