Guarding Your Heart


I want to share something with you that I have been meditating on for a couple of weeks now. It is a help to guarding one’s heart in the midst of madness taking place all around.


Next Sunday on Prayer Mountain

But First, I want to invite you back to Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks for a special Second Sunday Service at Three, July 12. This is the first time we’ve met at the Mountain on Sunday’s for a long time. And we are starting with something really special. Branden and Destanie Brim will minister with the powerful anointing that is upon this young couple. The anointing for healing and miracles is evident upon them. It has been demonstrated in meetings in California and around the world. Come out to Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks and worship with us. If you cannot be with us in person, join us in spirit via the Livestream Internet! (click here for more information)
That’s 3pm Central this very next Sunday! Looking forward to seeing you!


Guarding Your Heart

I was reading in The Worrell New Testament when I came across this comment to Ephesians 4:26, 27. Verse 27 is an oft-quoted admonition:

…neither give place to the devil.

Yet it is the last of a sentence which reads in its entirety as follows.

Be ye angry, and sin not;
let not the sun go down upon your wrath;
neither give place to the devil.

Worrell’s comments have been a guiding light as I guard my heart. They are:

“It is right to feel a temporary anger at some great outrage; and not to feel indignant at such conduct, would imply indifference to crime and wrong; but we must not nurse anger, whatever may be the cause; for anger, nursed, would grow into wrath; and to indulge wrath is to give place to the Devil. Anger, nursed, will turn to hatred; and hatred is of the Devil.”

We must not give the devil the pleasure of pushing us into emotions he so easily promotes and uses.


Screwtape Letter

C. S. Lewis’ fictional classic Screwtape Letter reveals a lot of truth. In it the elder demon, Screwtape, is teaching his nephew, Wormwood, as how to influence a human to the end of damning his soul. He advises something to this effect, “Push him to the extreme on any issue. It doesn’t matter to which extreme you push him. Either to the right or to the left. Just get him into the extreme.”


God’s Word

God never changes. God’s Word never changes. Let it be your guiding Light.
Let it be the path to your feet.


Shalom and Blessings
Billye Brim

    Thank you so much for sharing on this topic. We must possess our vessels abd keep in our emotions under the control and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

    • Grace on July 10, 2020 at 8:43 pm

      Thank you – so needed today with all we see and hear. Thank You Father, for Your Light!

    Thank you, Billye. I appreciate your input and especially the bible verses from different translations. Was explaining to my grandchildren the importance of guarding their hearts via thoughts and words they speak to each other. This quarantine has been difficult on young ones because they can’t go anywhere and I think they get on each other’s nerves more than usual.

  4. Marcia Levy on July 10, 2020 at 12:07 pm

    Good word

  5. margaret petersen on July 10, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    Amen! I have been quite conscious of guarding my heart,as well in all the current turbulence
    God bless you Billye! I find taking communion helps me stay right,and the fear of lord guides my steps

  6. Pachoute Fransca on July 10, 2020 at 12:25 pm

    I am very happy because you speak to me about the bible.I am a musician in my church but I haven’t possibility I want you help me please.

    • Catherine McHan on July 10, 2020 at 2:46 pm

      His word through Billye is spot on. Some of my internet smart, business daughter in laws have opened themselves to the dark side of facebook by simply stating their opinion. The replies have been been vile and is now affecting their businesses by certain organized groups. They are being slandered. This mama bear has and is using the scriptures, spiritual warfare, staying in God’s love and praise. I am paddling up stream with the fear of the Lord in my heart.

      • Sher on August 17, 2020 at 12:09 pm

        Wow! This has confirmed what me and my family have been praying.

        Thank you Lord for directing and guiding us with your word and truth.

  12. Brenda on July 10, 2020 at 5:48 pm

    Makes a lot of sense, very good to keep this in mind and heart everyday, much needed advice in these trying times, thanks for sharing !

  13. Giovanna Borgo-Carrillo on July 10, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    During these trying times, as violence and rage attempts to destroy our peace and focus, through TV, at home, at work, or out doing errands, we must always have our shields up and guard our hearts. What God told Joshua still applies, “keep this book always before you and meditate on it all day long.” If Jesus used the word to defeat satan’s attempts to cause Him to sin by shifting His focus to stray from His purpose to fail in His mission, we should follow Jesus’s example. He SHIFTED the lie to the truth and rewrote the result of the fall of man at the Garden. Jesus is the only Way, Truth, and Life. Thank you Billye.

  14. Jamie on July 10, 2020 at 6:44 pm

    Miss Billye, thank you for your constant direction that is Holy Spirit lead! I have heard this several times this week from several different sources, so I know it is from our Heavenly Father, and it was so right on time, it was almost unexplainable that I had been on several occasions just so quick to be angry, and didn’t even know why! That in itself was frustrating me bc it happened recently more than once! Makes me curious bc the lord has made this point known to me this week I wonder if it was directly to me or others had experienced the same thing!!! But I give no place to the devil and thank our father for making sure that we keep our eyes on him and corrects us through the Generals !!! Love you!!! Loved hearing the word from the Lord on Wednesday noon prayer also! I tried to jot it down as precise as possible, but it was very enlightening! Especially the part where he cautioned our words!!! ❤️ I have seen several times since Wednesday attempted attacked of the enemy and every time sitting in my seat if authority has stopped his maneuvers, and God has turned what he tried to steal into marvelous blessings!!! Praise the lord!!!! I really want to take the prerequisite class so that I can get in on the teachings of Daniel and Revelation, Pray that door will open for me! ❤️❤️❤️

  15. Heidi Honey on July 10, 2020 at 6:50 pm

    I have Proverbs 4:23 on a sticky note on the front of my devotional book. It’s guiding me through this time of easy distraction, reminding me to guard my heart for out of it come the issues of life. Thank you for reinforcing this truth/caution for me. Shalom dear Sister Billye!

  16. Pat on July 10, 2020 at 7:33 pm

    Yes –this blog is a great word! –“Narrow is the way that leads to life” because there are ditches on both sides. Extremes lead to error.

  17. Garry on July 10, 2020 at 8:44 pm

    Greetings sister Billye: When you mentioned “Worrell”, I quickly fished through the small collection of books I inherited from my folks and grandparents. Sure enough there was a dust covered Worrell New Testament!! I even discovered a 1924 book by Smith Wigglesworth, Oral Roberts “If you need healing do these things”, and Rev. and Mrs. Gordon Lindsay, ” Christ the great physician”. Thankyou for making it known, that that dusty Worrell New Testament is a cherished version. Garry

    • Billye Brim on July 11, 2020 at 9:09 am

      Garry, it is a treasure. So hard to find as they are not being published. I was working for him when Brother Kenneth E. Hagin helped bring it back into print.

    Thanks Billye for teaching teaching and prayer guidance. Thank you for your commitment and love for us. It is always refreshing.

  19. Marva Thomas on July 11, 2020 at 1:11 am

    Thank you so much for sharing, I am thankful for this reminder that we can be angry without allowing it to lead to sinning. Blessings to you and your loved ones.

  20. Bonita on July 11, 2020 at 3:23 am

    Thank you so very much for sharing this wisdom it is so needful during this time in our country; for it saddens my heart to see the Body of Christ being divided because of the heated division between the extreme left and right. Many in the church it seems have forgotten about the greatest commandment of love
    This word was right on

  21. Mary and Norman on July 11, 2020 at 4:03 am

    Hi could someone please tell us why our greetings were taken off
    My husband and I support this ministry and have been to israel tour

    Thank you so much for this great nugget of teaching about anger. Also, I plan to visit in spirit 4:00 p.m. ET from Eatonton, Georgia, to worship with you on Sunday afternoon.

  24. Robie Carlson on July 11, 2020 at 3:42 pm

    Thank you Billye! Sharing a “Now Word” like this one is a heads up for all of us at times. It seems that especially with all the changes we need all the heads up we can get. Praise the Lord for you and you ministry.

  25. PeterPritchard on July 12, 2020 at 12:00 am

    Great blog Billye. We can get wound up by the news, politicians etc. let off steam and move on.
    Please pray for our adult children Jacinta, Llewellyn, Morwenna , Donovan and Jemima .

  26. Yvonne Annibale on July 12, 2020 at 3:19 am

    Praise the Lord ! It is no surprise to me that Sister Billye mentioned this scripture in Ephs. 4 it is the same word the Lord has been speaking to me. I Love the confirmation. The Lord keeps telling me get angry at the devil and sin not. Thank you sister Billye for the good word. You expanded my thinking on this scripture.
