He That Keepeth My Commandments. 


“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” John‬ ‭14:21‬ ‭KJV‬‬ 


According to Strong’s Concordance, the Greek word for “Keepeth” is, ‘’tēreō” (G5083) which means, “To attend to carefully, take care of and to guard.” When you guard, attend to, and take care of God’s Word carefully, you’re making a decision to prioritize His Word above everything else in your life. 


To carefully guard His Word means to keep His Word as a treasure. When you choose to protect His Word, you are choosing to protect what you deem valuable. Choose to cherish God’s Word and let His Word protect you. He is mindful of you and you are invaluable to Him. 


Psalms‬ ‭8:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬ states, “What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?” God is mindful and thoughtful of you. He directs and orders your steps daily. Let His Word flourish in the ground of your heart and home. Let His Peace cultivate your garden. God desires that you protect His Word within the borders of your heart. 


God wants you to keep His Word at the forefront of your mind. Let your life follow His Word. Let your life follow His Pattern. Let your life reflect His Heart. Let your heart reflect His Character. Keep, trust and obey His Word in every season of life. Keep His Commandments. Let His Word regulate your borders.
