“What we harbor in our hearts translates to what
forms our convictions and this is reflected in our
2 Corinthians 05:07 (AMPC)
For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct
ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s
relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy
fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.
A statement from our lead verse today pops out.”…
We regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our
conviction or belief…” Selah! This is simply to mean that our
lives are a reflection of our convictions and our beliefs. It
is therefore safe to say that wrong convictions and beliefs
would lead to a wrong life and a wrong way of conducting
No wonder the writer in Proverbs 04:23 (NKJV) would urge us
to keep our hearts with all diligence, For out of it [spring] the
issues of life. What we harbor in our hearts translates to what
forms our convictions and this is reflected in our lives.
It is therefore key for every believer to watch and keenly
check to see what convictions and beliefs they have.
Our convictions are greatly influenced by our media and
what we expose ourselves to. No wonder Paul in Acts 20:32
commends us to God and to His Word of Grace that is able to
build us up and give us our inheritance among the sanctified.
He knew all that would align our lives.
Beloved, be careful what you hear and how you hear.
Build-up new convictions and believes in the Lord based on
the Word of God then your profiting will automatically be
evident to all.
CALL TO ACTION:
I will be given to the study of scriptures as the
knowledge of this gives me better insights thus
forming better convictions and beliefs. I only see
Jesus and am moved only by what He says and
what He does.
