Our thought-world is vitally important. It touches our entire life. God’s Word is like a seed planted in our hearts that bears the fruit of love and peace and strength. As the psalmist focuses on the fundamentals of life in Psalm 119, he shares that he has hidden God’s Word in his heart and rejoices in it as one does great riches.
It is like a seed planted that gives strength and power to live a fruitful and fulfilling life. When you plant God’s Word in your heart, it begins to nourish your heart and will take root and grow. You will find a new strength for living and a deep abiding joy.
Let your heart be refreshed and strengthened with God’s Word. Here are some selections from Psalm 119:
“How can a young person keep his or her way pure? By living according to your word. 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, O Lord; teach me your decrees …I rejoice in following your statues as one rejoices in great riches. I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.”
Pray with me …
Heavenly Father, help me to find your plan and purpose in your Word, and help me to allow it to take root in my heart and life and bear the fruit of a deep and abiding faith and a life that gives you honour and praise. Fill me with your hope and peace and love and joy that I may live a blessed life and be a blessing to others, through your power and to your glory. Amen.
Open your heart to God’s amazing love!
