A Sound “Healing” Heart

July 18, 2015

To my surprise, the study of a sound heart from the below proverb shows how sound doctrine is related to obtaining a sound heart and life/healing to the body.

Proverbs 14:30 NKJV
A sound heart is life to the body, but envy is rottenness to the bones.

From Prv 14:30

  • sound heart[04832] = healing, cure, sound (of mind)
    * from [07495] = to heal, make healthful, to cure, make whole
    * sound heart = a healing heart = a heart at peace
    * A healthy spirit is tranquil, bringing peace to the body

Sound heart = Healing heart = Sound mind
=> is tranquil bringing life, peace and healing to the body!

Luke 6:45 AMP
The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.

Sound doctrine = Sound (healing)heart = Sound mind
=> Sound speech

Titus 2:1-2 AMP
1 But [as for] you, teach what is fitting and becoming to sound (wholesome) doctrine [the character and right living that identify true Christians]. 2 Urge the older men to be temperate, venerable (serious), sensible, self-controlled, and sound in the faith, in the love, and in the steadfastness and patience [of Christ].

2 Timothy 1:7 AMP
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

Sound doctrine = Sound (healing)heart = Sound mind
=> Sound speech & Sound judgement
=> Sound life to the body!

Hebrews 5:11-14 AMP
11 Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your [spiritual] hearing and sluggish [even slothful in achieving spiritual insight]. 12 For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God’s Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food. 13 For everyone who continues to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is a mere infant [not able to talk yet]! 14 But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.

1 John 4:1 AMP
Beloved, do not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world.

When you are afraid – REMEMBER
=>Hold fast to Christ and He will give
… The will to see you through;
… And if you keep on keeping on,
… Your strength He will renew. —D. De Haan -From ODB

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

From NetBible 2Tim 1:7

  • spirit[4151] = Holy Spirit, breath of God
  • timidity[1167] = fearfulness, cowardice
  • power[1411] = strength, ability, might
  • love[26] = agape: brotherly love, affection, good will, benevolence
  • sound mind[4995] = self-control, moderation, discipline

For it is the Lion of Judah who goes with you
Wherever you go.

The Shield of Faith

April 3, 2012

2 Timothy 1:7For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Psalm 91:1,4 AMP … He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]… He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

Conquer fear
Confront it head-on with the power of faith
Hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.

Your shield is based on trust in His truth and His faithfulness
Stand firm under His wings!

Through Christ we are more than conquerors
overwhelming victory is ours!
-Rom 8:37

Ephesians 6 – The Armor of God

12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness.15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.

17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Romans 8:37 NLTDespite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

Psalm 91:4 NLT … He will shield you with His wings. He will shelter you with His feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
