FINDING GOD’S WORDS THAT ARE HIDDEN DEEP IN OUR SPIRIT
BY SHIRLEY RHODES
Understanding law and grace then applying it to our lives will encourage our hearts as God lives and breathes his spirit in and through our mortal bodies created for that purpose. When God redeemed mankind they had wandered from his original purpose; however, through love and compassion for his creation, he prepared a body and sent his Son to redeem mankind back to himself. This act of Love walked, breathed and talked as we do, his journey was one spirit filled.
He created a pattern for sharing all that God had given him by using parables as tools for understanding to everyone. We choose to follow after Jesus by keeping God’s Words Hidden Deep in Our Spirit; God’s Words hidden deep in our hearts makes us one in him.
Life (animation, salvation) is a gift to be cherished, Jesus says, “I am the light of the world; he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life (John 8:12). God’s Word Hidden Deep in Our Spirit is a light that beckons our weary hearts to look up, be strong, stead-fast, unmovable always abiding in the Lord for he cares for us.
Teach me Lord the way (Psalm 119:33), grant me understanding (34), my soul melt for discouragement: strengthen me according to your word (28). Your hands made and fashioned me; give me understanding (73), that I might be aware of all your ways.
God encourages each of us to diligently be studious of his Word thereby gaining knowledge, wisdom and understanding for living. The Psalms are filled with words of encouragement, praise and prayer. With teachings such as these, God’s Words are Hidden Deep in Our Spirit, our hearts are encouraged in all things that pertain to life.
Now let us understand and seek out the meaning to these words that are found in the book of
Fret not (1)
Trust in the Lord, you shall be fed (3)
Delight in the Lord; He will give you the desires of your heart (4)
Commit your way to the Lord; he shall bring it to pass (5)
Rest in the Lord; wait patiently for him (6)
Cease from anger; do no evil (7)
Wait on the Lord and keep his way (34)
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord; and he delights in his ways (23) Psalm: 37: 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 23, 34
So when life seems to be swirling about, and you feel broken and confused; lift your head up, pull your shoulders back stand tall and smile. With an eye on the prize, and that prize is Jesus, we can say to ourselves with God’s Word Hidden Deep in Our Spirit:
“This I know, he favors’ me, because my enemies do not triumph over me” (41: 11) and keep moving towards your destination while living out the purpose for which you have been created.
