Happy New Year! Let’s start 2020 off right by only allowing the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) in our personal space, ie: our hearts, minds, bodies and souls. Which leads me to this post… Protect your spirit. God gave you the power to control the gate to your soul. You have the authority over who and what you allow in, and you have the authority over who and what you let out. You are the guard over your heart. Arm it with the Word of God. Put on the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18). Think of your heart as a gated community. Your community is under the authority of Jesus Christ. If someone or something hasn’t come in His name, reject it. Even if it does come in His name, test it (1 John 4:1), because the enemy will try to deceive you. Ask God to fill you with His Spirit everyday so that you’re able to discern spirits. All it takes is allowing one bad spirit in, to wreck havoc on the rest of your life. So, guard your hearts (protect your spirit). The enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy, but Jesus came so that we may have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10).
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
