A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. WHAT YOU SAY FLOWS FROM WHAT IS IN YOUR HEART (Luke 6:45 NLT).

Beloved, I think what Jesus said here in our feature text is straight forward. If you want to know what’s in your heart, then pay attention to what comes out from your mouth. I remember some years back when someone had to sit me down and tell me that I was very negative. It was hard to accept then but it was true. It didn’t matter what positive comment you made, rather than say ‘thank you’, I found a way to think of something negative to say in response. And oh… the words that came out of my mouth were like fire. I could slice you into two with my mouth and I didn’t have to dig deep to think of what to say to spite or hurt you but going by Jesus’ statement, there comes a time when you’ve got to really sit down and think; Where’s all this coming from?

It even gets more complicated because… FOR AS HE THINKETH IN HIS HEART, SO IS HE… (Proverbs 23:7 KJV). This is no longer about what you say but about what you are thinking in your heart which is also influenced by what is stored in your heart, which then is what you become and what you attract.

Unfortunately, throughout life, we experience negative things and without realising it, we store them up. Soon enough, these things start to manifest in ways we can’t explain and then we say… “I can’t believe I just said or did that or I can’t believe this is what I’m becoming”. However, that’s because you are not taking care of your heart. You are told to… Guard your heart above all else, FOR IT DETERMINES THE COURSE OF YOUR LIFE (Proverbs 4:23 NLT). The NIV says… FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO FLOWS FROM IT.

Beloved, you may not be able to control some of the things that happen to you but you can handle things just by changing the way you think. I think I have shared before how growing up, there were times when we couldn’t afford to eat three meals a day and I remember we would all come together and just talk about the days when we ate something really nice. By the time we took turns to describe the nice meals we could remember, it cheered us up and we would all go to bed smiling. We had memories of all that nice food stored somewhere inside our hearts LOL.

Beloved, over time, I’ve had to do a lot of ‘FIND AND REPLACE’ to get rid of all the garbage in my heart. How do you replace? The Bible says… FIX YOUR THOUGHTS on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise (Philippians 4:8 NLT).

Can you think of any good thing to fix your thoughts on?

God bless you in Jesus Christ name
