No Entrance Here!

So above all, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are. Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being, for from there flows the wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23 Passion Translation

Have you ever reacted to something and later wished you could take back what you said? We all have, trust me, I struggle with this daily! But if you could, what would you do? I don’t think this verse would have been written if it wasn’t possible. How would you prepare to respond correctly?

My personal opinion is that although I can’t predict when things happen, I can choose to trust in God and the covenant He has with me. If I know my covenant, I can expect God to keep His end of the bargain. So if something contrary comes along, I put up my hand and say, stop right there! You can’t cross that line because my God said, “No plague will come near my home!” Stop right there, my God said that my enemy won’t triumph over me. He didn’t say there wouldn’t be battle, only that He would win.

So when circumstances & situations knock loudly at the door to gain entrance in your already crowded mind, make a decision before it even happens, NO ENTRANCE HERE! You can’t wait till it knocks to guard your mind, your mind must already be fortified, the locks & bolts firmly in place.

The Word says that you will KNOW the truth and it will make you free. It doesn’t say you will read the Word, glance at the Word or even memorize the Word. It says KNOW it. That word expresses deep intimacy with the Word. It must be more of a reality to you then your circumstances or situations. Overcomer’s KNOW the WORD.
