Guarding your heart is a daily challenge. This is because we face an enemy who is trying to destroy our life and heart. We also deal with many things outside of the enemy’s attacks which could cause our hearts to become bad or corrupt. This is why a Christian leader needs to maintain a guarded heart. Here are a few ways you can guard your heart,
Choose to surrender your heart and life to God.
Know your current heart condition.
Daily draw close to God by reading the bible, praying, and worshiping.
Build relationships where you can talk openly and honestly about heart issues.
Ask God to heal the hurt and broken areas of your heart.
Ask God to shine His light on anything which might cause your heart to become bad or corrupt.
Choices to forgive others.
Take seriously the small things which come into your heart.
If we desire to have a good and guarded heart then it takes God being in the center of our life, while daily focusing on guarding our hearts. We should maintain this type of attitude,
Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your Truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. Psalms 86:11
