Spiritual Warfare: 'Listen Very Carefully: Guard Your Heart'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, June 14, 2024

My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. … Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
— Proverbs 4:20, 23 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I confess that my life is too busy and my mind wanders. I usually focus on the things of this world much more than I focus on paying attention to Your commands or listening carefully to Your instructions. Forgive me. Lead me. Change me. Mold me into someone better than before. Help me to be on guard for the enemy at all times; to always be alert to the evil plans he has to lead me away from You. Help me to guard my heart above all else. My body will grow old and weak, but my heart and mind are Yours forever. Guide my heart to follow Your course. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
