Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You!
Psalms 119:11 NKJV
Treasure the words of God more than gold and silver. Keep them in the best and most suitable place which is the heart. Delight in His words for you to grow in holiness. They are food for the soul. Man cannot live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.
We should take them daily without skippping to ensure your spiritual health and avoid sickness which leads to death. The soul becomes sick when it is weak. It falls into sin which causes it to die. Because the words of God is so important in our spiritual growth and in righteous living, we have to devote time for hearing, reading and studying them.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the words of God. The more you hear God’s words the more will be your faith in God. Faith is proportional to hearing the words. You should also devote time in reading the Bible. Most people even Christians spend a lot of time in gadgets, telenovelas, games and facebooks and neglect to feed their souls.
Reading allows you to meditate and encounter the Holy Spirit to guide you in your study. It makes your faith stronger. It equips you with to fight against temptations and leads you to a successful life in Christ. Blessed are those who reads and hears the words of God and keep them in their hearts. The words of God is His power for salvation. Be doers and not hearers only.
