Keep your Word in my heart


Psalm 119:34    Give me understanding, that I may observe Your law And keep it with all my heart.

To sow for Christmas celebrations at Abide School and our Church, click HERE for details.  This season is the time to share you love with us.


Wow, what a word! This entire Psalm 119 with 176 scriptures is like goldmine oozing with love for God and His Word.  If you have not read it, do it right away.  Your palatial house, your 6/7 figure salary, gold and diamonds are not blessings; when you have knowledge of the Word and hunger for the Bible then that is true blessing.  Hurray! Yesterday my worker in Abide School told me about her landlord who is now in the last stages of cancer and since she is also working in their house, she is watching her die little by little.  Now that lady has lost all appetite to eat or drink, so the doctors have told that she is in her last days.  Are you listening?

Now let me come back to the portion of the Bible that we are meditating today, if you have lost all appetite to read the Bible or receive revelations from God, then you are also like this cancer patient in her last stage, with no appetite for food or water.  Your spiritual life is sinking and you are slowly dying.  Warning! Wake up!
David did not ask for gold or silver but he asked ‘give me understanding that I may observe your law.’ Wow and wow! Apostle Paul said: Colossians 1:10”That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God,’ Observe the words of Paul, he does not say, ‘grow in the knowledge of the Lord’, but he prays, ‘increasing in the knowledge of God.’ This should surely wake us!


There are Christians who read the Bible from morning to evening, yet, their knowledge of God and His ways are very little. We would not be fighting, quarreling, cheating, gossiping, scheming evil plan against each other if we have knowledge of God. We would not be jumping in and out of affairs, groping in the dark for the will of God for our future, daringly getting into atrocious sins and still feel good about ourselves. The Lord says, Hosea 6:6 “For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. “


We show no interest in God nor are we ready to grow in Him? We feel ‘night prayer, fasting prayer, Bible study, 5 am prayer are not for you but for crazy Christians who would separate time for God during the week. Hey Christian, you separate time for ‘friends- get-together, night fun, hang out, fun time and what not but you give ZERO time for God?????? Huh? God is watching! How you treat God is the way how He would treat you!


The person who knows his identification in Christ, will live a higher life and not live a mundane life, their walk and talk would be different. Say Amen.
