“Your word have I laid up in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”
Psalm 119:11, AMP
The Word of God has the power to protect you and keep you from sinning. Scripture tells us that it is living and active. The Word is powerful in our lives! There is the written Word of God, the Bible, and there is the spoken Word of God which can come in many other ways. The Bible tells us that God’s Word came through a burning bush, a still small voice, and even a donkey! He may speak to your heart through a friend or through a worship song. He may speak through creation. When He does speak, your spirit knows it. There is confirmation in your inner man. God’s Word is always truth, and truth always sets you free. When you hold God’s Word close to your heart, it is a shield of protection.
Today, meditate on His Word. Focus on it, think about it, say it out loud. When you focus on God’s Word, you will move forward in God’s plan. You will be strengthened to live as an overcomer in every area of your life!
Prayer for Today:
“Father, thank You for Your Word which strengthens and protects me. Thank You for speaking truth to my heart. Help me hear Your voice more clearly so I can live a life pleasing to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
