That I Might Not

Psalms 119:9-11How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your Word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You. (NIV 1978)

My Musings – How can we live according to God’s Word? By seeking Him and hiding it in our hearts. There is no situation that we face that we cannot take to Him in prayer. If we know His Word well enough (hidden in our hearts) we often know what to do.

My Advice – Living a life that is pure in God’s sight is easier if you know His Word well. Read it and study it regularly and often. Staying in a close relationship with Him is also helpful, because when you seek Him, He will always be near.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
