The Abundance Of The Heart

Focus: Luke 6:45 - KJV

45. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.


Matthew 15:15-20


The mind of God is that the man He created would operate in love just like Himself and so as to prevent his being manipulated by the enemy, God forbade him from the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. Since man ate of the said fruit, even though he has the knowledge of both good and evil, he is easily drawn to evil by the strength of the devices of the enemy to lure him to it other than to good. The Lord has put good seeds in place for the man to dwell on good, but his heart is said to be desperately wicked because of the enormity of the evil seed he allows in himself. So, when a man is good, the product is good fruit, and otherwise, evil. But even Christ said there is no one good but the father. Nonetheless, for us to be like the father, He enjoins us to expunge these thoughts:  murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. They bring forth evil fruit.


The Lord is particular about the manner of fruit that proceeds from us as believers. It does not add up when a person is called by the name of the Lord and he yields murders, and every other thing that is against love to the neighbor. If it is found in an unbeliever it is understandable as only sin should be expected from a sinner. We are therefore, to keep our hearts with all diligence to forestall the enemy putting evil thoughts into it as such thoughts can only produce evil fruits. If we embrace thoughts of love and kindness, then would we yield fruits in that likelihood also.


SOLUTION: Be careful what thoughts you allow into your heart. Once it appears you are being invited to dwell on evil thoughts, please hold every such thought captive in the name of the Lord that you may not end up producing evil fruits.


Please pray:

·     Thank God for where you are in life status wise today for it is the Lord that has brought you thus far

·     Pray that the Lord would please cleanse your heart of every wicked thought so that your heart will only be a receptacle of love and lovely thoughts

·     Ask the Lord to please by His power, erase every effect of your past evil thoughts in the lives of men

·     Pray that the Lord will make you an epitome of love and bearer of the fruit of the Spirit, continually

·     Tell God what you crave the most at this time that will add some glow to your life, particularly as it affects the Kingdom of God on earth.
