Memory Verse Monday – Week 31

Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. Psalm 119:11

 

If you are looking for a reason to memorize Scripture, this is a good one. I like the phrase “hidden in my heart”. It’s almost intimate and personal. It’s like a special secret tucked away in a special spot. But it is so much more than that. The word of God is living and powerful (Hebrews 4:12) When that living word of God is hidden in our heart, it has power. Power to change us from the inside out. Power to resist sins and every form of temptation.

 

In his book Warfare Praying, Mark Bubeck highlights the significance of memorizing Scripture. “When we memorize the word of God, we actually put within our minds the mind of Christ. That word becomes a helmet of salvation to the mind”

 

It was significant then for the Psalmist to hide God’s word and His laws in his heart so he could remind himself to stay away from every sin that the word instructed. It is equally significant now in our lives to hold His word close to our hearts. His living word, hidden in our hearts is a recipe for a sanctified life that God wants for us.

I enjoy learning from God’s word, it amazes me, the wisdom and treasures of God and the way He reveals them to me day after day in a profound manner. In this space I share with you what I’ve learnt through my time with the Word. I earnestly believe that learning alone isn’t sufficient but walking in the word is crucial in a believer’s life. As much as I desire to walk in the word, it’s not always easy. My hope is to encourage you, my dear friend, in your walk with God with words that He has used to strengthen my own walk with Him.
