Wisdom is knowledge applied. Head knowledge is useless on the battlefield. Knowledge stamped on the heart makes one wise.
The first assumption we should always make is that someone’s heart is good, not evil. Then even if there was poor intentions, your assumption of good can pull them into the light.
Giving our hearts to unworthy things can become like drinking from a tainted water source that is corrupt and will make us sick. Our hearts are ground zero for our lives, and we must be intentional vigilant, and wholly devoted, if we want to know and be known by God.
In God’s school, we learn through the heart rather than through the head, and by faith rather than logic.

People think of revival as a series of meetings in a tent. Revival is a state of the heart that’s awakened to who God is and His kingdom.
The call of God is not just for a select few but for everyone. Whether I hear God’s call or not depends on the condition of my ears, and exactly what I hear depends upon my spiritual attitude.
Worship is just the simple act of adoring Jesus. It doesn’t need an acoustic guitar. It doesn’t need lights. It doesn’t need a platform. It doesn’t need a stage. It doesn’t need any of those things. It simply needs a people that have their hearts set on adoring Him. That’s all that it needs, and this simple act of adoring Jesus is like this incredibly simplistic key, but it opens massive doors.
The cure of an evil tongue must be done at the heart. The weights and wheels are there, and the clock strikes according to their motion. A guileful heart makes a guileful tongue and lips. It is the work-house where is the forge of deceits and slanders; and the tongue is only the outer shop where they are vended, and the door of it. Such ware as is made within, such, and no other, can come out.
