“Keep your heart with all diligence” (Prov 4:23). What does that mean?. It means simply standing in the faith of who you really are in your spirit. You are united to Christ in your spirit (1 Cor. 6:17), and it is out of that inner union that you find the truth of your life and your own fullness of self in Him. It’s the same as when He says in John to “abide in Him.” It means remaining in the truth that you know within you. Things will assault you and tempt you and tell you that you are not in union with Christ, that He does not live in you and direct your life. To “keep your heart” is to simply remember who you are which lessens the strength of the temptation.
