Your Future Is Bright!
Your future is stored up in your heart! Its not dictated by your history or your current circumstances. Your future is determined by you! In the Scripture verses above, Jesus said that what is in your heart is what comes forth. So consider this: Who stored up the evil things that were in the evil mans heart? Obviously, the man himself did it. Who stored up the good things in the good mans heart? Again, the man himself did. In the same way, youre the only one who can make deposits of Gods Word into your heart. Your spouse cant do it for you. Your pastor cant do it for you. Even God cant do it for you. God has already done His part to help you. Hes the One who made your heart to be a depository for His Word. Hes the One who opened the account for you when you were a spiritual baby. As the Scripture says, God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith (Romans 12:3). The moment you were born again, He put the initial measure of faith in your heartbut youre the only one who can make that measure increase. And you can do that by taking the Word of God and putting it into your heart. Each time you make a deposit of the Word, your faith balance grows, and your future gets brighter. Isnt that exciting? And there is no limit to the size of deposit you can make into your heart! The more you deposit, the better things are, because that is where you will draw from to change the circumstances in your life. Your heart holds the faith youll need to cover any bill the devil tries to send your way. If he tries to put sickness and disease on you, you can draw from the Word of God about healing and it will give you victory in that area. If youve just been released from prison, you can draw from the Word of God about Gods plans for your welfare and have peace that you can make it just fine. Your future really is bright! The Lord says in Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version), For I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Put the Word in your heart. Speak it out in faith, and watch your circumstances change. 2 Samuel 9-10; 2 Corinthians 3 Out of the abundance of my heart, my mouth speaks. I bring forth good things out of the treasure of my heart. Matthew 12:34-35
