3 John 1:2 Amp “Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually].”
Matthew 5:8 AMP “Blessed [anticipating God’s presence, spiritually mature] are the pure in heart [those with integrity, moral courage, and godly character], for they will see God.”
Proverbs 4:23 NIV
“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
Our success and prosperity are determined by the condition of our heart, not our circumstances. The condition of our heart controls our life. It is most important to guard our heart.
When our hearts are not pure, it limits the power of God in our lives.
1 John 1:9 NIV “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
Ephesians 4:31 NKJV “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.”
Ask for forgiveness and learn to forgive. Unforgiveness leads to hatred, jealousy, hard hearts bad attitudes and anger. Guard your heart and let the power of God be plentiful in your life.
What condition do you feel your heart is in today? What could you do to better guard your heart? Did you experience a conviction, challenge or a commitment you need to make from this devotion?
