Put God's Word in Your Mind, Heart and Soul.
If the word of God is in your heart, you will be able to
use it when faced with temptations and troubles in everyday
life. In John 15:7 it says “If
ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what
ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” That
one verse say’s a lot, so let’s break it down
piece by piece. The first five words are “If
ye abide in me”. The definition of the word “abide”
is to accept without opposition or question. That means to
me, that Jesus is saying if you accept me as your savior.
Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal saviour? The
next six words spoken are “and
my words abide in you”. This should be pretty
clear, have you studied and memorized God’s word? The
only way that you can accept his word is by putting it in
your mind, heart, and soul. The word of God gives us guidance
in everything we do today and into the future. The next six
words spoken are “ye shall ask
what ye will”. This again is pretty clear cut;
just ask him for whatever you need or wishing for. Now for
the last of the verse “and it
shall be done unto you.” Yep, that’s right;
it will be given to you. Now that doesn't mean it will appear before your
eyes in that instance. Everything will be given to you when God wants you to have
it and will it help you live life as a better Christian.
If we were given everything we asked God for, the world would really be in trouble.
This one verse is pretty small but
when you break it down and start looking at it, it’s
like the whole world is laid out before you. Memorizing God's
word can purify your heart and will make a profound impact
on your life. What are you putting into your mind and heart?
The more we know of God’s word, and the more we meditate
and memorize it the closer we will grow to God and be better
