DO YOU WANT A GOOD LIFE?
Text : Matthew 12:35
“A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things (and “goodifies” his life): and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.” KJV
Let me ask you:
Is bitterness good treasure?
Is unforgiveness good treasure?
Is envy and jealousy good treasure?
Is fear good treasure?
Is unbelief good treasure
How about suspicion?
How about anger? Malice? Strife? Foolishness?
If your answer is “No!”…Then these things have no business in your heart…Yes!
Because they will make you speak things that will bring so much evil into your life…”for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks (either good or evil, strength or weakness, sickness or health, peace or trouble,life or death…)”- Matthew 12:34.
Now, God first said in verse 33:
“Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.” KJV
So, if your mouth must not speak what will pollute or stagnate your life, what is the good treasure that God would want you to make your heart good with?
Job 22:21 says : “Submit to God, and you will have peace; then things will go well for you.” NLT
How? Let’s see Job 22:22…
“Receive, I pray you, the law and instruction from His mouth and lay up His words in your heart.” AMP
Let’s also see Proverbs 4:20-21…
“My child, pay attention to what I say.
Listen carefully to my words.
Don’t lose sight of them.
Let them penetrate deep into your heart…” NLT
Let’s conclude with Colossians 1:9…Paul said…
“So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding.
Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.” NLT
Alleluia! Do have a great and fulfilling week…in Jesus precious name!
