KEEP THE WORD OF GOD IN YOUR HEART
It is important that we, God’s people, keep His Word in our hearts. We cannot deviate from the Word. It must be rooted deep within us so that we might live according to His will and His way. Our entire being, our hearts, souls, and minds, are offered unto God. The Word is clear that where our heart is, there we will be also. Therefore, as one thinketh, so he is. Let our minds be in Christ. With heart, soul, and mind we dwell upon His Word. There is richness, power, and love in His Word. Our scripture reference is in Deuteronomy 11:18 and reads in this manner.
“So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders.”
In these moving and powerful words, the writer makes clear that the Word must be within our hearts. As a nation, the people are called to keep God’s commandments to love the Lord and serve Him with all their hearts, souls, and minds. They are to honor Yahweh with their entire being. They ought to teach their children to honor and to love God. The writer knows well that God has showered His love upon the people. They must respond with the words that are planted within them. That is our challenge today that we might keep the Word of God in our heart and that He has first place in our lives as we worship Him in spirit and in truth. I pray today that He will get the glory out of our lives as a result of our worshipping Him.
