I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
My husband and I were talking the other morning about why people do what they do in certain situations. My husband was
thinking out loud theorizing that maybe they do what they do because of this or that reason, or maybe they justify their actions because of what other people do.
As he was talking, I had a vision of a boat being tossed about on the waves……and the Lord really opened up my mind to understand in a new and deeper way that without His Word in the heart a human’s thinking is like a dark ocean of waves upon which unstable thought processes are carried. (Just think of the internet and all of the
waves false ideas, suggestions, teachings, doctrines in that deep ocean alone)
…so that we may no longer be children,tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Ephesians 4:14
I shared the vision with my husband and we stood in awe of God. We also stood in humility at how God has worked in our lives to bring us to the provision of His word as an anchored hope in our lives.
We have this hope as an anchor for our lives, safe and secure.
Jesus, Your word is so powerful that, with it, we have the ability to destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey You (2 Cor 10:5). That is what it means to walk in truth. You are Truth. We need Your Holy Spirit to do this, Lord, so like David, we cry out, “Do not take your Holy Spirit from me!” You are our Sure Foundation-our Life-and we have this anchor in our soul because your cross was anchored to a hill outside of Jerusalem 2,000 years ago. We cling to The Anchor. It is in Your name I pray. Amen.
For they call themselves after the holy city, and anchor themselves upon the God of Israel; The LORD of hosts is his name. Isaiah 48:2
The song starts a little after the 6:00 minute mark…
