___Remember the old nursery rhyme, "The Queen of Hearts, she made
some tarts, all on a summer’s day . . . " Thinking of the good queen
gives us an easy way to remember to hide God’s word in our heart. If
we fill our heart with the word, it helps us know what to do and what not
to do. Knowing God’s word also enables us to quote the Bible to fight
back against temptation. Jesus even did that. When the devil kept
tempting Him, Jesus kept saying, "It is written . . . " then quoted the
Bible (Mat 4).
___One of the reasons God gave us His word was to help protect us
from harm. When we know what God’s rules for us are, we make better
choices and lead safer, happier lives. Furthermore, when the way we go
about our lives is pleasing to the Lord, He likes to open doors of
opportunities to serve Him, too. So hide God’s word in your heart and
live a safer, happier, more satisfying life!
Deu 30:14 . . . the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so
you may obey it.
Ps 40:8 "I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart."
Mat 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Additional Reference Verse
Mat 4:4 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every
word that comes from the mouth of God.'"
I have hidden your word in
my heart that I might not sin
