Proverbs 4 Hearken to Words of Life and Guard Our Hearts with What We Hear

Proverbs 4:20-23 My child, pay attention to MY WORDS; listen attentively to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight, GUARD them within YOUR HEART; for they are life to those who find them and healing to one’s entire body. GUARD YOUR HEART with all vigilance, for from it are the sources of life.

Twice it says hearken to words of life. And equally twice it says to guard our hearts with what we hear. Words that rob our assurance or challenge our faith that God is good, against such we must guard our hearts. The Word cannot be effective to produce such a harvest of health, wholeness and victory when we listen to such messages. When we hear words that bring us joy and hope, nurture and guard it through re-listening, meditation and speaking it forth. God’s Word is the Seed of life to health, prosperity and all that we ever need to be victorious.

– Adrian Ho

Amen, this is so important. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, and not be carried about doctrines that instill fear and condemnation (Hebrews 13:9).
