I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.

Psalm 119:11 NIV

Listen to Words from the Heart

Hidden

In the Globe and Mail’s 2021 article of the best hidden places in Canada, it lists Waterton National Park in Alberta. It says this of the townsite: “With a population of about 100, the entire town is walkable in an easy hour, along the lakeshore and past Cameron Falls, circling about a dozen streets lined with independent restaurants, small hotels and retailers – it feels like stumbling onto a real-life movie set nestled into a 360-degree rocky mountain backdrop. Hikes throughout the park are world-renowned.”

Some things never change. It was raining over this past Easter weekend when our grandchildren were here for the day. After dinner the little boys decided to play hide and seek – and some were so good at hiding the parents had to get involved. As the old humorous adage says, “good hide and seek players are hard to find.” The Bible speaks of the importance of hiding. Psalm 119:11 says, “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” It takes work to hide something. The importance of taking the time to ensure God’s word is placed deep within us cannot be overstated. Persecuted Christians who have spent months and even years in prison for their faith tell of the importance of having God’s word memorized. For the rest of us, having God’s word in our heart helps us stand strong when faced with temptation and the pressure to walk away from Biblical standards. Take time today to hide God’s word in your heart. Put it to memory daily and you will walk, daily, in victory.

These have been words from the heart.
