What are we to do with the Word of the Lord?
“You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.
“You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up.
“You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates,
so that your days and the days of your sons may be multiplied on the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens remain above the earth.
We are to have the Word in our mind and heart.
We are to allow the Word to guide our hand.
We are to allow the Word to guide our thoughts.
We are to teach the Word to our family.
Not limited to a particular “devotional” time…
Not limited to “sunday school”…
Not limited to “worship” time…
As we are sitting in the house.
As we walk/ride/drive along the road.
As we lie down.
As we rise.
The Word of the Lord should/must be upon our lips with every breath.
Think on this.
We have a choice.
To speak the Blessing of the Word of the Lord.
To speak that of the flesh, soul…perhaps even the curse of the enemy.
The Word should be so prevalent in our lives that it is written upon the physical structures in which we live.
Why all this?
So that our days may be multiplied upon the land…ours…our offspring.
Too many “professing believers” live a fragmented existence.
They have “their life.”
They have a small portion reserved for their “spiritual life”.
Such should not be.
We should overflow with the Word of the Lord, His Power and His Presence.
