God wants us to guard our heart for it is the wellspring of life.
In Psalm 52:7, David wrote:
Have you ever known anyone who made himself or herself feel bigger or better by putting others down?
Beth Moore: Putting others down to build ourselves up is perhaps the ultimate sign of gross insecurity.
Dear Father God,
Whenever negative emotions fill my heart, I want to commit my mind and heart to You, Father God! Search my mind. Purify my heart. Give me a teachable spirit. I am willing to be corrected by Your Holy Spirit. Let not feelings of jealousy, disappointment or offence be a result of ‘self love’. Open my eyes to see myself as You see me. You have the perfect plan. You are perfect in all of Your ways. I want to conform to Your image. Let me be a living sacrifice. Let me be a pure vessel fit for Your fragrance. I want to anchor myself in You and Your Word. I have the seal of the Holy Spirit. I want to be guided by Your Spirit, walking in Your will and working out my salvation. I want to stay on course - on the straight and narrow path You have for us. I will trust You with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. In all my ways, I acknowledge You and You will make my path straight. Amen.
I love You, Lord, and I lift my voice; To worship You, O my soul rejoice; Take joy, my King, in what You hear; May it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear. Amen!
