[God’s word IS A TREASURE worth hiding in our hearts, and there is no place safer than in our hearts; if we have it only in our houses and hands, enemies may take it from us; if only in our heads, our memories may fail us: but if it is embedded in our hearts, and the impressions of it remain on our souls, IT IS SAFE.] “I seek you with all 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. Praise be to you, LORD; teach me your decrees [rulings].” (Psa. 119:10-12) [Everything that God has spoken, every Godly inspiration which the prophets have received, is pure, without error, without waste. Whatever trials it may be exposed to, it is always like gold: it bears the fire, and comes out with the same luster, the same purity, and the same value.] “Every word of God is flawless [perfect]; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.” (Pro. 30:5) [The circumstance which Christ took from this to pronounce those more happy who are his faithful and obedient listeners and followers of the word of God than she was who bore and nursed him. He does not deny what this woman said, nor refuse her respect to him and his mother; but leads her from this to that which was of a much higher importance!] “As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, “Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.” He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” (Luke 11:27-28) [Let us focus on being obedient to the word today, hide it then do it!] “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and HIS NAME IS THE WORD OF GOD.” (Rev. 19:11-13)
Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that we are to HID THE WORD OF GOD IN OUR HEART’S THAT WE MIGHT NOT SIN AGAINST HIM!
