Bible Reading:  Joshua 14: 7-8

Memory Verse: For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV)

The condition of a man’s heart can affect what and how he sees things. The principle is this: “You see things the way you are in your heart and not the way those things are”. If you are fearful at heart you will see things from a fearful perspective. Imagine two people looking at a glass containing water midway into the glass. One person says, “The glass cup is half empty”, and the other says “The glass cup is half full.” Both have said the same thing but from two different perspectives according to the condition of their hearts. The former is a pessimist while the latter is an optimist.

Look at Caleb in our Text: “Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to spy out the land, and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart. Nevertheless, my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God”. You see that this man spoke as it was in his heart. Each one of the twelve spies spoke about Canaan as it was in their hearts (Numbers 14). “As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is” (Prov. 23:7). The condition of a man’s heart will affect what and how he sees things. That is why the Bible warns us to protect our hearts with all diligence (Prov. 4:23). If you must see well you must open yourself to the Spirit of God, live a life of worship, be an addicted Bible lover, remain ever prayerful, read motivational books by spirit filled Christians and work with friends who will inspire you at all times. The real you is the person in your inside!
