Hello loves!! Well, I wanted to share with you what God has been teaching me! So yesterday I was reading the Word and came across these verses,
"Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.
Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put a perverse lips far from you.
Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you.
Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn
to the right or to the left; remove your foot from evil." Proverbs 4:23-27
I've really been trying to stay in tune with God's voice and really understand His Word more. So I decided to take a look back at those verses and break it down.
"Keep your heart with all diligence, for our of it spring the issues of life." I was confused by this for some time and still kinda am. But the best I could think of was that God wants to keep our hearts in Him and put our trust in Him even when we're having a ton of problems. Just to take heart in Him.
"Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you." This is saying that we need to make sure that we are pure in our mouths and what we say and also stay away from people who aren't pure in what they say. Because you are who you hang around.
"Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you." I think this is saying that we need to keep our eyes on what God has for us not in what the world has around us. It's easy to look at the world and think, 'wow that looks appealing.' but that only lasts a moment. However what God has for us and what He has planned for us is eternal!
"Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established." I think this is saying watch where your going because you can fall into a trap and not even know it. Just as that Casting Crowns song says (Slow Fade), "people never crumble in a day. It's a slow fade."
"Do not turn to the right or to the left; remove your foot from evil." This verse is what of the best because it's really clear. This verse is saying, don't look at the world and don't look at the people around you, look to the Lord and keep your eyes steady on Him because only He can truly fulfill your desires, dreams, and much much more!!!
I hope this has blessed you!! love you all!!!!!!!!!!! peace!
