Guard the deposit

…guard the deposit entrusted to you.      1 Timothy 6:20

What has been deposited into your life that needs guarding?

God carefully and purposefully designed our bodies with a strong cage of ribs to protect our heart. It takes severe trauma or deliberate actions of force to get to our heart. But oh how easily do the arrows of the devil sneak in to pierce and wound when we forget to put on the armor of God. We need that armor, God’s breastplate of righteousness, as extra protection.

When our heart stops pumping, we are dead and of no use on this earth…guard the deposit entrusted to you.

God’s Word tells me to guard my heart, for out of it flow all the issues of life. He also tells me to love him with my whole heart. Yet there are times when I have laid my heart out there, no protection, and allowed it to be ravaged, broken and ripped apart.

When our heart stops pumping, we are dead and of no use on this earth…guard the deposit entrusted to you.

I am so thankful that God heals and redeems, and in the process, I learn the importance of guarding, protecting all he has entrusted to me.

Only God knows our hearts and what is best for us, eternally. Guard the deposit…who is that?  what is that? Ask the Holy Spirit this weekend to clearly show you

the deposit that has been entrusted to you by God…and guard it diligently. For it is a gift from the King.
