Fixing Our Heart
I wonder how often we realize that there are many things within the natural that are actually working based on Spiritual laws? What do I mean by this?
Take, for instance, the enormous amounts of motivational speaking that is present within the United States. While many of today's top motivational speakers do not consider themselves religious, if the principles they are teaching work you will more than likely find them in the Bible.
In the world of motivational speaking you will find that you are going to have to see yourself succeeding before you will ever experience it. The Bible tells us that without a vision people perish. In the motivation world you will find that you are going to have to be successful inside before you will ever be successful outside. In the Bible we are told to guard our hearts because out of our hearts flows the forces of our lives.
Naturally we are all established on something. The Bible tells us in Psalms 112:7-8, "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings (bad news); his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord. His heart is established, he shall not be afraid..."
The only way that we can have a fixed heart is if we establish our heart on something. Unfortunately, many have their heart established on things other than the Word of God which is why when bad news comes they are moved and find themselves in fear. This is not the plan of God for our lives. God wants us fixed on His Word, unmovable, and ready to take down any enemy that would come against us. Are you that person?
There was a group of Israelites that could not possess what God had promised them simply because they could not get their heart off the conditions of the natural. Instead of being established on God's Word they were moved by what they saw. Much later the army of Israel had the same problem as a giant mocked them and their God. But along came an untrained warrior who was established on the covenant of God and unmoved by the noise of the day. We all know the end of the story - he slew the giant!
Being established on God's Word is a very important key to our victory. The most difficult part is that God gave us the Rock that we are to be established on, but left the establishment part up to us. We set the agenda for what our heart will be established upon.
Start making your life a life of establishment on the Word of God. Get into God's Word, prayer, and church and allow God to do some great things in your life.
