Inside Out vs. Outside In

Manna For Today: Monday, January 15, 2018

Proverbs 4_23 tells us, “Watch over your heart with all diligence for from it flows the springs of life.”

Judges 13:4So be careful; you must not drink wine or any other alcoholic drink nor eat any forbidden food.

What do you do when God comes to you and tells you, “I am going to use you to end your greatest challenge in your life and the lives of many others?” You listen intently to what He says next.

“So be careful!” What was He warning Samson’s mother to be careful of? Be careful of what she allowed inside from outside sources.

We can find parallels in our lives. Proverbs 4:23 tells us, “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.” This is another warning to be careful because outside influences can be detrimental. Take a moment right now and allow God to reveal to you where your watch might be strengthened and ask your Father for help in accomplishing the same.

Share your discovery with a trusted brother or sister in the Lord to whom you can be accountable. Perhaps they may share with you some needs of their own.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

    Father, continue to strengthen me in my “watch”. Help me to continually examine and acknowledge when I stumble back into my same old “MO” and help me to immediately turn to Christ. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I believe and receive it in the name of Jesus, Amen.
