“Let [my words] not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.”
The fan in my living room was making a squeaky noise this entire day. It was very irritating at first but then I got used it. However, while putting myself to sleep in the night, the noise became so clear that it induced irritation and anxiety in me, especially as I am a light sleeper.
When it got too much to handle, I stumbled upon the earphone besides me. Surprisingly when I put the earphones I couldn’t hear the squeaky sound of the fan. I heaved a sigh of relief.
I didn’t move somewhere else nor did the fan squeaking stop. I just did some noise cancellation.
God’s words are the earphones we need to cancel the unnecessary babble of everyday life. We don’t need to move.
Psalm 46:10 says ” Be still and know that I am God.” Jesus brought heaven down.
When our sin was great, His love was greater. When we fill ourselves with God’s word, we will be able to counter the lies which the devil speaks in our ears. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy and he does this a lot of times by instilling fear in us.
However, we serve the Lord, whose name itself is so powerful. The Word empowers us to detect error; it sets us free from sin (John 8:32-34).
It grows us up spiritually (1 Peter 2:2), equips us for ministry and enables us to pray according to the will of God.
Therefore, be full of God’s word.
Lord, thank you for reminding us time and again of your unchanging love. Fill us with your Word. Help us, with the power of the Holy Spirit, to hear you with our spiritual ears, meditate on your Word with our hearts, obey your Word and finally bear fruit unto you.
