I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:11
At 176 verses, Psalm 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible and chock-full of praise and prayer… prayer to God to help us keep His COMMANDS, obey His DECREES, follow His STATUTES, meditate on His PRECEPTS, long for His LAWS… many words to describe His WORD, which we are to hide in our hearts that we might not sin against Him. The psalm is also filled with praise to God for fulfilling His promises! If memorizing verses or large chunks of scripture is intimidating, just remember this: If you know The Lord’s Prayer by heart, you have memorized part of the Bible!
You can prepare for anything life throws your way by learning, memorizing, and hiding His Word in your heart. Let’s challenge ourselves to read and meditate on a psalm, proverb, or Old or New Testament book and learn a new verse that we can hide in our hearts.
Lord, thank you for Your Word! Thank you for Your promises and Your peace that surpasses all understanding. Amen!
