A Cheerful Heart. 




The ground of your heart matters to God. A heart that’s submitted to God, produces His Fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. When you allow the things and the cares of this world to contaminate your heart you’ll choke your peace and sabotage your joy. 


The ground of your heart is critical to your spiritual, emotional and physical growth and development. Choose to guard the ground of your heart with the Word of God. There’s a difference between guarding your heart and hardening your heart. 


When you guard your heart, you’re guarding the ground of your heart with the Word of God. His Word protects you. When you guard your heart, you’re allowing God’s Word to cultivate and till your ground. When you choose to allow the Word to cultivate and lead your heart, you’re choosing to live and walk by faith. 


When your heart is hardened, you’re allowing fear, resentment, bitterness, pride and anger to take deep root. When your heart becomes hardened you’re allowing the cares and entanglements of this world to choke your harvest. Don’t allow the cares of the world to weigh you down and choke your harvest. Declutter the ground of your heart by submitting to God’s Word. When you follow God’s Word, you’ll get His results.
