I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you – Psalms 119:11
Word of God (Scripture) is given to mankind for living a Godly life as mandated by God. We read in 2 Timothy 3:16, All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for instruction, conviction, correction, and for training in righteousness.
Even when Jesus Christ was tempted by the devil, He used the written word of God to respond to Satan. To escape the snare of the enemy we need to know the word of God (Scriptures). We can use the word of God as a defensive(like Buckler) or as an offensive weapon(It is a two-edged sword) against the devil.
By reading and obeying the word of God, we can overcome the temptations of sin and can lead a victorious life. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path – Psalms 119:105. The Psalmist (Man after God's own heart) was able to finish his race successfully because he treasured and valued the word of God. May God help us to memorize the scripture and apply the same in our life so that we may be able to fulfill the purpose of God in our lives.
Prayer: Father God, help us to meditate on your word day and night so that we may be able to lead a life that pleases you. In Jesus name I pray – Amen !!!
