It’s easy to “keep, guard and protect” something when nothing is wrong. It is easy to protect something when you’re not under attack. Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV states, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” When the storms, challenges and obstacles of life head your way, choose to keep, guard and protect His Word. Keep His Word close to your heart.
David declared, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” Psalms 119:11 KJV. Sometimes you have to hide God’s Word in your heart. Let His Word be absorbed in the borders of your heart. Let His Word be the bedrock of your spiritual DNA. Let your character reflect His Word.
As you walk out and live out the Word of God daily, let His Word and your reputation become one. Let your heart be married to His Word. Let every fiber of your being cherish His Word. God sent His Word to lead you and to pursue you. His Word became flesh and died for you. His Word Loves you. God is Love and there is nothing that can separate you from the Love of Christ.
Let the Love of Christ lead you. Let His Love pull you out of the wilderness. “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:34-35 KJV
