Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. – Proverbs 4:23
No part of us is of more value than our heart. It is who we are and it is from what we give.
If we are followers of God then what we are is made whole, clean and righteous. Out of our previously broken and darkened heart.
Therefore, we are made whole, clean and righteous because of what God has done for us. Not through our own doing.
If we know this to be true then we know the presence of God in our lives. We are protected and strengthened by him. Whom then shall we fear?
The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion. – Proverbs 28:1
