Obedience is better than sacrifice. “Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.” Psalms 119:11.
The Word is the daily manna for our souls for divine health and protection. Everyday there can be stress, pressure and frustrations in our plans of work, ministry or in family. Emotional and mental distress is a spiritual battle. We cannot guard our hearts without the Word of God. Proverbs 4:23. God’s Word is the shield, bulwark and rampart of our soul, emotions and thoughts against the enemy forces. “My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life and peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man.” Proverbs 3:1-4. Commit all your plans to God’s daily and he will direct your path with His favour. Praise God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, For You, will bless the righteous and with favor You will surround me as with a shield. Let my heart hides your Word so that sin will not come in. Your presence is my hiding place and may the prayers of my mouth and faith in my heart be ever to please you and abide in your commandments with delight. I love your Lord, my strength, and lead me with your plans in Jesus' Name, Amen.
