When it was time for them to leave and Pharaoh was dragging His feet in releasing them, something happened that made him to release them. The angel of death walked through the land at night and killed all the first born of both man and animals. King Pharaoh had to let go of the Israelites.

Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear [no] danger, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff—they comfort me.—Psalm 23:4

As a child of God you are never alone! Your Shepherd is with you at all times. You never have to call Him in to your situation. You never have to wonder where He is. You never have to fear that if things become too difficult, He will abandon you. He goes before you; He walks beside you; He comes behind you. He protects you securely.

Just as He sees every sparrow and knows every hair that is on your head, so His gaze is constantly upon you (Luke 12:6–7). Even when you cannot see Him, He always keeps His eyes upon you. He comforts you with His strong presence in times of sorrow and grief. He leads you through the valley of the shadow of death. He does not necessarily lead you around the valley as you might wish.

There are times when your Shepherd knows that the only way to get you where He wants to take you is to lead you down the path that passes through the dark valley. Yet, at those times He walks closely with you, reassuring you throughout the journey that He still loves you and is with you. It is during those times that you experience His love and compassion in a deeper dimension than you ever have before.

You never need to fear evil. As intimidating as evil can be, there is nothing you will ever face that intimidates your Shepherd. He has seen it all and soundly defeated every form of wickedness. Evil never catches Him by surprise. Your Shepherd is always prepared and knows exactly when and where you will experience difficulty.

Place your absolute trust in your Good Shepherd that He will protect you and demonstrate His love for you through the darkest valley.

Absolute trust in God is all you need to go through your trying times. Be still and know that He is God. Wait on Him alone dearly beloved, and guard your heart with all diligence, let get going:


 Guard Your Heart


Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.” (Proverbs 4:23a)

Ah, the “heart“… that is where our problems lie, is it not?

The heart here represents your ethical center, your intellectual center: What you think, what is going on with your will, your perceptions of yourself and your knowledge of God.

The condition of your heart is critical because what goes on there determines the course of your life.

So… guard what is happening in your HEART with all diligence.

Picture your physical heart pumping blood through the arteries to the extremities of the body. The health of the heart determines the health of the body.

So it is with your spiritual heart. What goes on there affects all the extremities of your life.

Want to keep your heart pure? Then check your ACTIONS in three areas:

  1. Your speech:

Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put devious lips far from you.” (Proverbs 4:24)

QUESTION: Is your speech truthful? Straightforward?… Or misleading?

  1. Your eyes:

Let your eyes look directly ahead, and let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.” (Proverbs 4:5)

QUESTION: Are you looking only at things that enhance your mind and your morals?

… Or do you have wandering eyes?

  1. Your path:

Watch the path of your feet and all your ways will be established. Do not turn to the right nor to the left; turn your foot from evil.” (Proverbs 4:26)

 QUESTION: Are you only going to places that keep your heart pure… Or are you drifting into questionable areas?

Beloved, guard your heart with all diligence because out of it flows the issue of life. Your heart is who you put a full guard on it.

On this note we this week is declared blessed. Go in the peace of the Lord and achieve what the Lord has planned for you before the end of the month and week in Jesus Name.

Receive the comfort of the Lord and guard your heart. Where ever the enemy has lie ambush for you the Lord will guide you through it to their shame in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
