"I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." NIV
"Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." KJV
There are many people who have learned the Bible and can quote many passages and scripture. Too often, their use of scripture is from a sense of responsibility or to show others how learned they are in the Bible. If we do not take what we learn from the Word and bury it within our hearts until we are saturated with it, we will be in danger of sinning against God. A heart that is filled with God's Word is sufficiently protected from giving in to sin.
Heavenly Father, we ask You to give us more hunger for Your Word and to allow it to fill our hearts. Show us how to use Your Word to protect us from sin and the evil one. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
