Proverbs 4:23 tells us to keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it flows the issues of life. 2 Peter 3:14 shares for us to make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.
There is something to be said about preserving our faith. It is important that we keep our minds and hearts in Christ Jesus so that we are clean – when we go to Him, our hands and our hearts will be pure. Both Proverbs chapter 4 and 2 Peter chapter 3 tells us to keep our minds set forward on Christ and to keep away from evil distractions that will become stumbling blocks; these scriptures are yet encouraging – that your diligence in seeking Christ will be worth it. In the end, you will not have stepped out of bounds, but will have been preserved in the Lord.
Make commitment to the Lord your purpose today, and the Lord will honor your preserverance and will see you through.
