Choices

Psalm 119:11

It is so important that we are memorizing His Word. When we do that we are imprinting on our brain the things we need for life. It brings us closer to God. It protects us from sin. It helps us encourage others.

There’s more to memorizing the Word than repeating it over and over until it is firmly branded on our minds. We need to be meditating on it, discovering it’s meaning, and becoming aware of how it applies to our lives.

This morning I was doing that with the verse above. God had put it in my mind while I was falling asleep last night and I woke up thinking about it. (Has he done that with you, too?) I think He wanted me to discover this truth: If His word is not part of our choices then the choice we’re making is not in line with what He has purposed for our lives.

Let me tell you, I was ‘blown away’ with that thought. How many times have I simply made a choice instead of letting His Words guide me? How many times have you done that? Many times the consequences have been good but sometimes…

That’s why we must have His Word planted deeply in our heart, mind, and soul. Making decisions based on His Word keeps us on solid ground.

Abba, Father, open our hearts to Your Word. Give us great desire to know it so well that each time we face a decision we can call a verse to mind that applies to it.

  1. You are so right. When we go through life making decisions based on God’s word and not simply our emotions or thoughts, we can be sure we’ll be directed to the right path!
