Are you the saint's or the Aint's??

DONOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS!!!

HARDENING ONE'S HEART IS VERY EASILY DONE!!!

Jesus said out of the heart flows the issue's of one's heart.

Luke 6.45
A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of

The heart of the person, is likened to a garden, why? because your heart has trust and faith...and this my friend is the very thing that opens the door to good news or junk mail.  you see you are the one who has to make a stance within regards too what you allow in your heart!!!

proverbs 4-23:24 Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life. 24Put away from you a deceitful mouth And put devious speech far from you.…

Whose got to watch over their mouth's???  you do....!!!

You are the common denominator...why??? because your own mouth could very well lead you into the "VALLEY" "WILDERNESS"  that God never intended, however guess who gets the blame when everything goes belly up?  that's right...you guessed it...GOD!!!

 In the wilderness, the Israelites hardened their hearts in rebelling against God. They tested (or tried) God with their lack of faith. And that is the reason they did not enter God's rest. God became angry with that generation in the wilderness because of their persistent rebellion (Psa. 106:13-33

In a nutshell...a test in the wilderness...will make or break you...MAKE UP YOUR MIND, WILL YOU CHOOSE TO PRAISE GOD....WHERE??? IN THE WILDERNESS!!! A QUESTION? IS IT NOT TOO EASY TO PRAISE GOD IN GOOD TIMES? OR, BETTER YET...HANG ON YOU'D RATHER GIVE GOD THE PRAISE WHEN EVERYTHING GOES YOUR WAY....hmmmm????  Complacency, allows for complaining (what's the harm)...then complaining births rebellion, and then one's heart will then be susceptible to "Hardness"...now it is too easy to let hardness slip unawares....watch and guard your mouth!!!

James 1-18

Trials and Temptations

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. 10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. 11 For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.
12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created

You haven't moved forward...WHAT WAS THE LAST THING GOD TOLD YOU TO DO??

STOP  EVERYTHING , AND GO SOMEWHERE QUIET....AND ASK GOD IF YOU HAVE MISSED ANYTHING HE ASKED YOU TO DO (SACRIFICIAL/OBEDIENCE)...REPENT, AND "JUST DO IT"

Hebrews 3-15while it is said, "TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE, DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS, AS WHEN THEY PROVOKED ME." 16For who provoked Him when they had heard? Indeed, did not all those who came out of Egypt  

It's never too late to un-harden your heart...Gods mercies are new every morning....ask for forgiveness, and build your portfolio with God with a history of "TESTIMONIES OF VICTORIES"
and don't forget leave a little room for mistakes....they are what I call ''SPIRITUAL GROWTH SPERT'S"!!

IT'S TIME TO MATURE THE SAINT'S....OTHERWISE YOU BECOME THE AINT'S!!!
