Keeping From Sin Psalms 119:11

Ps 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.KJV We need to remember verse 10. The psalmist asked God to help him not wander from God’s commandments. This I find to be a very Good prayer. We know God will accomplish this thing we ask. Now the problem that I find, is that if we stop there, then things most likely will not happen and we will wander away. After praying that prayer what we need to do is exactly what the psalmist proclaimed. “Thy word have I hid …

Wandering From God Psalms 119:10

Ps 119:10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.KJV In the first half of this verse we see that the psalmist is saying he has sought God with all of his heart. In reflection to this lets apply that verse to our lives. Can we say that we are seeking God with all of our hearts? Is God our all in all. Do we say we seek him but in reality we seek our own well being. We feed our appetites for entertainment, friendship, lusts of worldly goods. Lust …

But there is one problem. Yes we became born again, Yes we became the temple of the Holy ghost, Yes we became a …

Psalms 119:8

Ps 119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly. KJV As Christians we should purpose in our hearts to keep God’s word. Not to be saved or earn any favour with God, but because we are saved and love Him. Jesus said John 14:15 ” If ye love me, keep my commandments.” KJV We can see that the word IF means a lot. If we love him we will keep His commandments. In other words because we love him, out of our love for him, our love cause a desire to keep His commandments. If …

Psalms 119:8

Ps 119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly. KJV Here is a very interesting verse. What I love about the bible is you can meditate on one verse for a very long time and get so much out of it. This is a very small verse but it has so much meaning. If we just glance over it we can miss the importance of it. If we do not look at it through the covering of Jesus Christ and His Grace we can miss so much. From discussion I have had with other Christians, I …
