Gotta Be A Heart Change

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. "
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21

How is your heart? I am not meaning are you going to have a heart attack or stroke but how is your spiritual heart? Is it filled with joy and happiness or darkness? Only God can change a heart from evil to good. You can look around you at the world and see that there are many 'dark hearts'. When police are routinely killed, when babies are murdered in the womb, when evil is called good and good evil, you know the country is in need of a major heart transplant. 

Even the recent seemingly innocent holiday of Halloween has roots in evil practices and is more about darkness than light. We have to choose what type of things we feed into our hearts as that is the kind of person we will be. The tool most people have in their home to combat darkness is the Bible. But it cannot just sit on a bedside table as a decoration. It needs to be opened regularly and read and meditated upon do do any good. Satan loves it when Christians think all they need to do is own a Bible but rarely use it to help them in their life.

Do you want to have a happy, content, peaceful and joy filled heart even when and stuff is swirling all around you? Then get into God 's word each and every day. Spend quality time getting to know God and hearing from Him through scriptures. You have time for everything else that you think is important. Shouldn't God be first?

Start today and pick up that Bible and get your heart renewed. Start off reading the book of John. Next read some Psalms. Study and think about what you read. Above all keep fervent in prayer and ask God to protect your heart. 

PRAYER: I delight myself in your word Lord. I want my heart to stay pure and out of darkness. Help me recognize evil and stay away from it. Help me keep my heart focused on the goodness of the Lord. Keep me away from evil. In Jesus' name.Amen.
