When the Bible talks about guarding the heart, it’s referring to our inner core. Those thoughts, feelings, desires, will, & choices that make us who we are. For it is our thoughts that often dictate who we become. So how do we safeguard our hearts /minds? Well, thankfully our Loving & Merciful Father has given us a PERFECT guidebook / manual just for that very thing!! In Philippians 4:8 we can find the “How To Guide” on that very matter!
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things!”
By dwelling on these things when your mind is bombarded by the enemy & our human nature. It will forge a hedge of protection around it. That’s when the Holy Spirit will step in( if you allow & are obedient) to help you make those choices that will lead you AWAY from the entanglement of the enemy(Sin)❣
