Hiding God's Word in Your Heart

By Kira On October 10, 2010 Under Devotional

?Being a Christian Mom it is my goal to demonstrate a Christian lifestyle for my children. With this in mind we as a family attempt to spend time daily in Bible study and prayer. Usually this occurs during breakfast before our day moves into full swing. We also set aside Sundays for attending Church Services, volunteering at church and doing family activities. As I took time this past week to look at what I would like to share with my readers I felt that Sunday was a day that I would like to share scripture or a devotional type post. Each week I will try to post either scriptures that have had an impact on me during the past week, a devotional I have enjoyed or a christian article that I have found to be of interest to me. This week I would like to share a article on Hiding God’s Word in Your Heart.

One thing that I have learned growing up is that it is very important to memorize God’s words. Psalms 119:10-11 says “I see you with all of my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

What does “I have hidden your word in my heart” really mean?   You can’t place the actual bible in your heart. It is not an organ that you need to live physically. So let’s take a minute and break it down.  What does the word hide or hidden mean?
Hide:
* to conceal from sight; prevent from being seen or discovered: Where did she hide her jewels?
* to obstruct the view of; cover up: The sun was hidden by the clouds
* to conceal from knowledge or exposure; keep secret: to hide one’s feelings.

So basically the word “hide” means to conceal. So why would you want to conceal or hide something? And what would you conceal or hide?  I know I would hide or conceal my most treasured things. If I knew today that I was going to have my house broken into I would hide my most valuable, treasured items so they were protected.

Matthew 6:19-21 talks about storing up treasure in heaven rather than on earth. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Let me ask you, do you treasure the word in your heart? Do you love it? Do you do what ever you can to have it?

Having the word in your heart helps you stand against the devils schemes and standing against the trials and temptations. Ephesians 6:12, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, and against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

There have been so many times in my life that I have needed to stand on a solid rock and remember what God has done for me and that He is there to be my strength. “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.” Is. 40:29,31.  “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Phil. 4:13.  Knowing what God’s says and standing on His promises are very powerful to a Christian.

Have a Great Start to your week!

Kira
