Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23 NKJV)
Holy Spirit, Jeremiah 17:9 reminds us of this truth — our hearts are deceptive. Your Word tells us that our motives come from our hearts and yet, we can reason with ourselves and even convince ourselves that what we want is right. Lord, help us not to be deceived. Help us to measure every thought, word, or deed against the guidance of Your Word. Help us to live in diligence to what Your will is for our lives. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
