a hardened heart...
A hardened heart scoffs, sneers, derides and despises the Word of God spoken through his prophets, arrogantly questioning the prophet’s merit and pedigree.

the heart and fear…
A mouth exposed to a vocabulary of fear contaminates or pollute; stain; defile; soil; infect; adulterate faith stored in the heart.
A heart piloted or navigated; steered; shepherded; directed by the spirit of fear will lead or usher your life into a desolated or barren; bleak; wearisome land where the fruits of bitterness, offense, depression and grief liberally flourish.
the heart and God’s Word…
A heart of stone, one that refuses to thaw or soften; melt; tenderize to allow God’s Word to permeate will eventually birth a life of toiling, bitterness regret and untold suffering.
A heart that is dedicated or devoted; consecrated; committed and eternally covenanted to honor or revere; respect and glorify God while walking in His precepts births a heaven backed lifetime of favor, honor, power and authority.
the heart and the Holy Spirit…
The Holy Spirit is the sole or exclusive; solitary; single and only authorized or legal; sanctioned; commissioned and rightly empowered and able teacher with the power to change a Man’s heart.
the heart and pride…
A heart void of the Word of God is unstable, increasingly anxious, bitter, easily offended and magnificently depraved of joy and compassion.
A heart that forgets to feed the mouth with hymns of thanksgiving, psalms of praise and verses of gratitude will soon fill you up with the faith asphyxiating, purpose assassinating and vision mutilating cuisine of pride and arrogance.
A heart soaked in the muddy waters of pride, bleached in arrogance, tumbled in the detergent of self-preservation and dried in the mist of covetousness will be robbed of glory and stripped of authority.
