Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. What is in our hearts comes out through our words and actions. We must guard our hearts from evil so that we can abstain from doing evil.
Psalm "Whom have I in heaven but You? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but GOD is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." My favorite verse of all time.
To be filled with the Spirit, we MUST be emptied of self! ~ FHE idea - use plastic wrap over empty pitcher to represent selfish things blocking the Spirit trying to enter in our lives (water unable to fill pitcher)
Psalm - "If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.
