Title: “Guard Your New”

Scripture Reading: Proverbs 4:23 (NIV)

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

As we embark on new beginnings, it is crucial to guard what has been entrusted to us. Join me in exploring Proverbs 4:23 and reflecting on the message titled “Guard Your New.”

In Scripture, the heart is often used to symbolize the core of our being—the seat of emotions, thoughts, and intentions. Guarding our heart is an essential aspect of maintaining the purity and integrity of our new beginnings.

Just as a garden requires protection from harmful pests, our new endeavors need safeguarding from negative influences. Guarding your heart involves being vigilant against influences that could hinder the growth and flourishing of what God has entrusted to you.

Guarding your new also entails cultivating positive habits and attitudes. Be intentional about nurturing a heart that is open to God’s guidance, filled with gratitude, and aligned with His purposes. In doing so, you create an environment for your new endeavors to thrive.

Heavenly Father, help us to guard our hearts as we embrace new beginnings. Grant us discernment to recognize negative influences and wisdom to cultivate positive habits. May our hearts remain steadfast in your love and purpose. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
