4 – Creation and Things That Are Made
23 – Being In The Presence Of God

Proverbs 4:23 (NKJV): Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.


I think there are unavoidable times in life when we are thunderstruck by the introduction of dramatic dread. Something hits us that isn’t on our radar and traumatizes us into a period of time where we are vulnerable to making bad decisions—even making things worse. This is why you need a tribe. A supernatural family of believers that are full of faith and the Holy Spirit. This is why you need a community of Christians.

The Bible says to not forsake the assembly of the brethren. You don’t go to church so that God loves you more. You intentionally connect with the body of Christ so that you can keep loving God when you otherwise would be crazy. Sometimes we desperately need “healthy” hearted people to stand with us and declare the goodness of God in the Land of the Living.

You don’t want your life altered forever or even ended because of the dramatic trauma that comes with bad things. The goodness of God will help you overcome that and I hope and pray that you are surrounded by Christians who have an agenda for goodness and the love of God towards you. Guarding your heart is essential, and the people you do life with are a part of the equation.

Declaration: The Word tells me to not be deceived, evil company corrupts good habits. I will be intentional with those I share my heart and my life with. The Lord expects me to be a good steward of my heart because it is where He rules and reigns from within my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
