“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
When I think of hiding the word of God in my heart, I first think of memorizing scripture. And to be painfully honest, most of the scripture that I can quote from memory, I memorized as a child.
However, on the upside, there are many principles that I have learned from the Bible as an adult. I may not be able to quote some verses verbatim, but I can usually go and find them if I need. The meaning of said scripture is definitely hidden in my heart!
Some of those things are still works in progress, mind you. They are there, nonetheless. One of the ways I use to hide the word of God in my heart is by taking sermon notes. I use a notebook that is solely devoted to Church and I take notes using these headings:
3. Scripture passage
4. Message notes
5. Specific verses I want to remember
6. How this applies to me
It’s amazing to go back and see the notes from the past. Sometimes I am convicted all over again and sometimes I can see just how far Jesus has brought me! The latter is definitely the goal!
Blessings to you and yours!
