Prov.4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
The issue of the heart is a very important one, so it’s important that we also take care of the things that passes through the heart and that comes out through the heart. One of the most potent weapon of battle is the thoughts of man. We either win or lose in the heart. Once we concede defeat in the heart, so shall it be. And when we win the battles of thoughts, then, have we won.
Jesus told us about how important the heart is. He painted a parable of the sower who went about sowing seeds and some fell upon the wayside, some on stoney/rocky heart, some on the thorny heart and some on the good ground. Of all these four categories of heart, only one produced fruit. It simply means, the position of our heart is as important as the word we hear. The potency of the word is dependent on the position of our heart.
So, we find David praying, ‘Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.’ Ps.51:10. Without a clean heart, there will never be a right Spirit. Most times, when the scripture talks about the heart, it is in reference to the spirit. Hence, the place of relationship with God is not the mind(soul) but the heart(spirit) which is able to track and relate with God. “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:” Rom.8:16.
Let’s pray the Lord re-positions our heart nd make it right again that we may become fruitful in all good works. Every stoney heart be changed.
