God gives us instructions in this verse to guard our hearts and minds. We do not understand these instructions in a human sense, but we must be obedient to carry them out in faith. While writing this Soul Provider, I realized I have fallen short in understanding these instructions and even asked myself, “really?” Our human nature fights against these things, but God keeps encouraging us to be faithful in following these instructions. He knows what brings us peace, after all he designed us.
1. Why do we fight these instructions from God?
2. How can we guard our hearts and minds?
Challenge: Be faithful, go against your human nature, and follow Christ’s instructions.
