“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything (Issues of life - KJV) you do flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23 NIV
Many misunderstood that guarding our hearts is to prevent others from hurting us. Many are living in hypocritical lives because they want to put on a strong and false front because of their pain and abuse of the past but this causes a double minded heart, a fearful and confused spirit. People couldn’t get near you and you couldn’t get near people. You can’t build relationship with fear but with the love of Christ. God desire us to be free. Prayer is the key to protect and guard our hearts. Pray for your enemies, be kind to those who hurt you, forgive yourselves and bless those who curse you. Luke 6:28
We don’t realised spiritually that when we pray for someone who hurt us or release forgiveness to other, God too forgives our sins and the person or memories no longer able to hurt you again. It requires faith to forgive and be set free from emotional abuses. This day if you obey the Lord to release forgiveness, you are free in Jesus Name!
To God be the glory!
