“Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
Psalms 119:11 KJV

On the surface, this is a simple verse, and yet the implications of it are immense. “Thy Word,” the all powerful Word of God, “ have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” What a wonderful verse! In one short phrase, we are reminded and reassured of what a powerful armor we have in the Scriptures. They give us strength to withstand temptation, provide us with the courage to stand up for our Christian beliefs, restore our faith when we are beset by doubt, comfort us when we are lonely, remind us of forgiveness, and, the main inference of this verse, keep us walking in God’s path. Just memorizing them is not enough, however. We must also get in the habit of using them when we need to. How often when you are faced with a puzzling situation, or have a decision to make, do you turn to scripture for the answer?
Remember, the “sin” referred to in the Scripture includes having sinful thoughts, saying non-Christian words, and doing inappropriate acts. Learn to use the wonderful tool of His Word that you have hidden in your heart.

Oh Lord, we thank you for giving us these Scriptures as an effective armor against sin and doubt. Give us the wisdom to hide these words in our hearts, so that we may not sin against Thee in thought, word, or deed. Help us to learn to rely on Thy Word for every aspect of our lives. Amen

Closing Thought: Too often we think it’s too difficult to memorize Scripture verses. Yet, as the Psalm says, these verses are a viable tool, given to us by God, to use as an armor to protect us against this sinful world. As you study the Scriptures, notice how many of them are appropriate for use in strengthening our Christian lives. Memorizing Scripture is one of the best ways to grow in your Christian faith. And, as you memorize them, learn to use them in every aspect of your daily life.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
