23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it [spring] the issues of life. - Proverbs 4:23 NKJV
Hello family, we have a spiritual reproductive system. You might have a puzzled look on your face or you may be saying, “huh?” But we do have one. And just like the human reproductive system what you put in you will get out.
Our eyes and ears are bombarded by massive amounts of information both visual and audio. And this information plants seeds in us. Sometimes we take in information (seeds) that are harmful to our spiritual life and we allow them to grow and produce fruit that does damage to us spiritually and physically.
Where do these information seeds go? They go to our mind. Let me share with you a new view point on what your mind truly is. Heart in hebrew is leb which is defined as inner man, mind, will, heart. Take note of all these but really take note of the last word, heart. The same word for heart in hebrew is the same for mind and takes on the same definition (check it out in the strong’s concordance).
Our mind is our heart and out of it flows the issues of life. These issues do come form the sin nature with in us. They also come from information (seeds) we take in. If not aborted the seeds will turn into thoughts and if allowed to still continue. These thoughts are birthed out in the form of actions. Our mind is like the womb, thoughts develop until we either abort it or allow it to be birthed out in by acting on them.
It works the same way for our good actions. God will plant a seed in us and it forms a thought but we abort it and do what we think is best, then six months down the line we look up at God and say what happened, because things did not turn out the way we expected. On the flip-side we can act on that thought God gave us and six month later it has produced other seeds that are planted in the heart (mind) of the people God used you to minister to, and those seed produce more seeds.
Family, lets guard our heart with all diligence (mind) from any thought (seed) that is against christ. the thoughts that come from our sinful nature we must abort them otherwise they will do serious damage.
Much Love & God Bless
