Whether or not you are conscious of this truth; everyone operates from the depth of the well within. Nobody talks for the sake of talking; that is one reason why you can’t just write off anything you hear. You may claim that the person does not know what he or she is saying; but that word has come from somewhere, right down from the “well” within. The Bible says in Matthew 12:34 –

“Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh”. If the “well” within is good, good things well emanate; but if it is an evil well, you can’t help it, bad things will emanate. There is no pretence about it; your real person will always manifest, based on the kind of “well” you have within and the kind of words you speak.

It is a “well” no one can work to suppress. No matter how you try to suppress it, it will always show. You are a product of what you have within. The Bible says in Proverbs 23:7 –

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he”. Seeking for a life of goodness is more of an inward thing than an outward show. If you have it within, it will automatically show up on the outside. If it is not there, deep rooted in you; even when you try to show it on the outside; it will vapourise and leave the real you open for all to see. If you allow goodness to take root in you downwards; no matter how you seek to cover it up, it will show up to bear fruit upwards. The same assertion goes for evil roots which compulsorily gives rise to evil fruits.

There is a “well” within that needs daily attention for those who “by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life” (Romans 2:7).

This daily attention comes by way of a daily renewal and God’s Word admonishes us to be transformed by the renewing of the mind (Romans 12:2). This work of renewal is not a once and for all kind of a thing; it is an ongoing thing and the agent of renewal is the Word of God: “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By talking heed thereto according to Thy Word” (Psalm 119:9). It’s through the agency of God’s Word. Keep your mind saturated with the pure Word of God and deceitfulness will not be able to penetrate.
