We live in a “Fighting Ring” between the desires of the heart and the guidance of our mind!…It’s the Ultimate Fight!…where our life is decided and our fate outlined.
Those who are led by their heart, meaning emotions, feelings and cravings are going to be deceived by it!…That’s one of the greatest characteristics of the heart, it deceives leading to the wrong decisions.
We see that in love life,whereby one is led to a relationship just because fell in love with someone, without using his brain!…Later on that relationship becomes a nightmare!…
The heart is very sensitive, emotional, weak, wants to feel. The heart leads to fleshly and carnal behavior, sexual promiscuity, fornication, adultery, pornography, lust, drunkenness, hatred, grudges, malice, etc..
“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders,drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
On the other side of the coin we have the Mind. It’s our intellect, that is linked with an intelligent faith, backed up by the word of God. When we follow, obey and trust in God’s direction, trough His word, we will never be mislead to the wrong path!…How, you may ask? Because God will never lead us wrongly, he will guide us to the truth and obviously take the wright decisions in life.
Perhaps you have be knocked out, punched by the heart!…You gotta stand up and start using your mind, your intellect. How? Follow God’s instructions. Certainly you will overcome the “Ultimate Fight!…”.
