“Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” – Psalm 119:11
The home is a good place for the Bible. The hand is a better place. The heart is yet a better place. We must learn to hide God’s Word in our hearts. And in order for it to get in our hearts, we have to read it. We have to study over it.
How much time are you spending with the Word of God? Do you wonder why you can’t live a pure life? Or live in victory? Why you cave in when temptation comes? Why you can’t be an overcomer? How much time are you spending daily with the Word of God? Many spend far more time with the television or the newspaper than with the Word of God. And then they wonder why they fail. This is the book God has given to help you to live victoriously.
Many of you are just playing at Bible study. You never really get into it. You say, “Oh, the Bible is a wonderful book.” What good is that going to do you? What good are the promises in God’s Word unless you appropriate them into your life? Do you have a quiet time, a time when you get alone with God? Do you get up every morning and saturate your soul with the Word of God and bathe your soul in the presence of Jesus?–Adrian Rogers
