Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
When facing the enemy we have to fire on targets that support his mission. It’s not that you send a sniper with a unit and he just goes to kill people. No, you need to aim for the leader, you need to aim and take out that which will produce the most psychological devastation on the enemy and the most functional, when you study war and snipers. Usually they look for the leader. They find out whose being saluted to, they find out who is the one directing the show. They fire on the target that best supports the mission.
What does God have in his sights in your life; he has your inner man, your heart, the center of your affection, the center of your emotions, the center of your will, and the center of your purpose that drives you. Remember, God is looking for willingness inside of us, to work with Him in our hearts. We read what God said about David in Acts 13:22, “I found David son of Jesse a man after my own heart for he will do anything that I ask him to do.”
God’s looking for watchfulness. He wants our hearts to be something that we watch over and protect so that the wrong thing, the wrong affections and the wrong passions don’t get into it. We looked at the passage where it says” look over your heart with all diligence for from it flow the springs of life.”
You are fighting a force that you are unable to defeat. Only God who has placed his Holy Spirit in you will bring victory. He has already alerted you as to what to zero in on. Pull the trigger.
Thank you Father you have made me a sniper in training.
