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 for it.
