The Heart

The mind is a most powerful tool - with our thoughts we frame our world. If we can think it; gestate that thought; we can achieve it.

May I submit today that the heart is no less powerful. When the heart is troubled with much emotions, it so overwhelms the entire being that even the mind could not conquer the depth of the heart. In a conflict with a loved one, try hard as I may, the heart is in such turmoil that even as I keep confessing "that the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guard my heart and mind...", the mind can do little to alleviate the sting in the heart.

"And now abide faith, hope & love... but the greatest of these is love."

"Because He love... He gave.."

God is love; and love is a central theme of the very nature and character of God.

And love flows out of the heart, not just the mind. Yes, the mind is needed to make a decision to love when loving ain't easy (it never is). Out of the heart flows the essence of love and the creation of the world and mankind.

It is then little wonder that the devil is staking it all on wrecking this world we live in with much conflict, bitterness, hate and death. That which holds the world (i.e. love) is the very thing that the devil seeks to destroy. Much as the mind is powerful, so is the heart. Guard it with all diligence, for out of it flows the issues and boundaries of life.
