“Your word have I hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”
Children love a game of hide and seek. As one child counts to 10 the others hide. Then the hunt begins to find them. There are often squeals and laughter as each child is found. The better hidden they are the less likely they are to lose the game.
Today’s verse gives us a very important key to building our future. It says we are to take the Word of God and store it in our heart. It’s vital that God’s Word is the very centre, the heart, of everything we do in life. The more of God’s Word we store in our hearts means the less likely we are to sin. We will not miss, forfeit or lack the fullness that God has for us when we have His Word in our heart.
God’s Word strengthens us so we can remain close to Him. It ensures that we won’t easily be led astray. The Bible contains an abundance of great Words all designed to be hidden & stored in our heart. Whenever we feel like we have a little extra heart room let’s fill it with God’s Word for our future.
This week let’s remember God instructs us because He loves us. Let’s respond to His love by taking His precious Word and storing even more of it in our heart. This will not only allow our life to prosper like never before but it will ensure that we are equipped to enter a winning future!
