Proverbs 4: 23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Jesus said our true self comes out of the heart. With that in mind may I ask everyone that is reading this, to sort of give your heart a spiritual check up. What I'm thinking about, is do we have a healthy, Godly heart. A heart that is sending forth a right spirit, or have we neglected to keep our heart with attentive care.Making sure it is sensitive to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.  

The daily walk in this world with it's stresses and constant attempts of the Devil to wear us down to feel like throwing in the towel and crying out in despair, "I can't go any farther, I'm about to sink." has it made our heart sort of calolused and weary in well doing. Are you sensing that your heart is not responding to the preaching of the Word as it use to? Can you honestly say of your heart that it is still correctable and is softened when it's reproved for sin in your life, or would it be correct to say that failure to keep your heart right, you have allowed it to become hard to be convicted of wrong, and more difficult to repent with tears? Is the attendance to the house of God and paying attention to the preaching no longer precious as it once was? No wonder the warning is sounded in God's Word that we need it pay close attention to the state of our heart. Oh how dangerous it is to allow our heart to harden, our ears to close and our mind to resist instructions in righteousness. Because the heart is the seat of affections, when it becomes hard, we tend to separate ourselves from the family fellowship and even give God a cold shoulder. We do this by letting up in the prayer life and study of His Word.  Just as the song asks the question, (Is thy heart right with God) , is it easily broken over wrong in your life? Does it still cry out for God to speak to you? Can the Holy Ghost squeeze a tear out of you for failing to obey Him?

One more time may I ask if you know that your heart tender before the Lord?
