Scripture Reading: Psalm 119:11
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Reflections: The psalmist words ‘ Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee’ is by far one of the most favorite scriptures of people. The hebrew word ‘tsafan’ translated ‘hid’ means ‘to store up’. Figuratively, it also means ‘to deny’. When applied in the sense as used by the Psalmist, it lays bear the secret to overcoming conscious sin in your life. As you store up the word of God in your spirit and mind (through Bible study/reading and listening to undiluted word based sermons), it produces a powerful irresistible urge in you to deny the access of sin into your life. How much word you store up will determine your success over the power of conscious sin. Jesus is a perfect example. He overcame the access of sin into his life by the stored up word in him.(Matt 4:1-11). The stored up word in you is your power to deny sin’s access into your life! Keep storing up!
Prayer: Oh Lord, help me to give attention to the study of scriptures in my life. Let me store up scriptures more and more in my life.
Confession: The stored up word in me is my power to deny sin’s access into my life!
