7/14 "The Sentinels of Peace, the Angels of His Presence are guarding your heart and mind"  



Today I saw the phrase "Guard your heart" two separate times and I knew the Holy Spirit wanted to say something on this. So I started researching. In the Old Testament in Proverbs 4:23 we are commanded "to guard our hearts with all diligence.”



I asked," Oh Lord, how do we do that?" He responded," You can't." 



"We can't?" I asked. 



"No, My Daughter, no one ever could. It is for this reason I sent My Son. This is the New Testament through the Blood of the Lamb. Now through faith in Him, your heart is well guarded. Your heart is Mine.”



And I saw in the Spirit, Angels surrounding a heart, which are the mind, will and emotions of each Believer. As we look to Jesus,  His Sentinels of Peace protect our heart from the intruders sent by the enemy. The Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts and the angels always protect His Presence. Know this, Beloved of God, His Peace which is His Wholeness, surrounds and protects you from every fiery dart of the enemy! 



If you have never given your heart to Jesus, may I encourage you to do so now. 




"Beloved. Your heart is under constant attack. Because you are Mine, you are living in a combat zone. You have an enemy who is bent on your destruction. He is opposed to you because he is opposed to Me. But do not fear. I will contend with those who contend with you. I have made provision for your safety and peace of mind. It is finished. 



"Trust in Me to keep you safe. Entrust your heart to Me fully by faith. Your mind, will, and emotions shall no longer be subject to uncertainty, depression, and fear, but My Peace which surpasses all understanding shall guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus. My Heart was pierced so that yours could be whole. 



"You are hemmed in on all sides by My Sentinels of Peace. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge your Savior, and I will direct your Paths. The heart that so trusts in Me will be safely guarded from the attacks of the enemy. 



"Your faith in the One who died for you opens the Door to Wholeness and Peace. My Presence, the Holy Spirit Himself, has come to dwell in the hidden chambers of your heart. No evil can touch you here, My Child. For the Lord is your Keeper. I will keep you from all evil, I will keep your soul.



"You cannot guard your own heart, Beloved. It is an impossible task and a burden you were not meant to bear. I am your Divine Keeper. I am your Divine Protector. I am the Prince of Peace. I give My Angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways. They Guard the Treasure within you. They are your Sentinels of Peace, watching over you to protect your heart from all the attacks of the enemy. Not just physically but also emotionally and mentally. 


"This is the Divine Wholeness you have in Jesus. For I am well able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the Presence of My Glory with exceeding joy. Believe and be persuaded that I AM able to keep that which you have committed to Me until that Day. For I have your heart surrounded by the Peace of God. 



"The Hedge of Protection can never be broken. The Demarcation Line of Shalom Peace can never be breached. The Blood of Jesus cannot be crossed. I have enclosed you in My Circle of Protection. 

"You are hemmed in, behind and before! I was broken that you would be made WHOLE! I am still the Mender of Broken Hearts, Dear One. This is how you fight your battles. Give your precious heart to Me. You may feel like you are surrounded, but you are surrounded by Me!" 





SENTINEL: A soldier or guard whose job is to stand and keep watch. A soldier stationed as a guard to challenge all comers and prevent a surprise attack. 



PEACE OF GOD: Strong's Greek: 1515(from eiro, "to join, tie together into a whole") – properly, wholeness, i.e. when all essential parts are joined together; peace (God's gift of wholeness). 


Specifically, the Messiah's peace. The tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and content with his earthly lot, of whatsoever sort that is" (Biblehub)

GUARD: Strong's Hebrew 5341: To hem in, protect, to guard, watch, watch over, keep, to preserve, guard from dangers,  guard with fidelity, watchman. Strong's Greek 5432: From a compound of pro and horao; to be a watcher in advance. To mount guard as a sentinel.



HEART:Strong's Hebrew 3820: inner man, mind, will, heart, understanding, midst, soul, mind, knowledge, thinking, reflection, memory, conscience, seat of emotions and passions, seat of courage

HEMMED IN: Strong's Hebrew 6696:confine, secure, shut up, enclose, encircle, surround

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
