“Keep your heart with all diligence for out of it spring the issues of life.” — Proverbs 4:23
Many of us have had an EKG (electrocardiogram) of our heart. It measures our physical heart which should have regular ups and downs on the graph as the heart beat is recorded. An unhealthy heart will show lines that are erratic and indicates a problem requiring a diagnosis.
Each of us has a spiritual heart! We want our physical heart to be alive but a healthy spiritual heart should be dead, that is dead to self. If the life of Jesus is ruling our spiritual heart we do not react to life situations with fear, anxiety or a sense of impending doom. There is no lines of ups and downs, but a steady flow of His life ruling our spiritual hearts.
Lets all check our spiritual heart to see if it is dead to self, settled in Him and not bounced up and down by the challenges that come our way.
