I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
(Psalms 119:11 ESV)
- What kind of things do you store up? - Things that you will need later and things that you can't live without. - If you find out that there is going to be a shortage of water, it would be wise for you to store up jugs of water so that it is available when you need it. - That's what Gods Word is like. - We should all be regularly memorizing God's Word and storing it up in our heart. - Without His Word, you are bankrupt. - Without His Word you are lost. - Without His Word you are blind. - Psalm 119:105 says that His "word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." - Psalm 119:165 says, that if you love His Word, you will have great peace and will not stumble. - There is not one thing that it could hurt if you memorize God's Word, but if you choose not to, you can suffer great loss. - If you are not memorizing it, then you must have decided that you can Live without it. - According to Psalm 119:11, it can keep you from sin. - To "sin" is to miss the mark, or the bullseye. - The bullseye should be a right relationship with God. - To really know Him and His ways. - To know His best for your life and to walk in it. - God has a best way for you to go and the best plan for you. - 1 Cor. 2:9 says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” - The way to God's best is to get His Word in you! - Memorize it - Meditate on it - Dwell on it - Eat it - You are going to need it and you can't live without it! - Have a great Wednesday!
