The Watered Soul: Keep it Tied Tight

Mar 29, 2011

Keep it Tied Tight

Behind those crisp pages a new story unfolds. There lies a new truth to be discovered. Big ones, little ones, entertainment ones, or enlightening ones…I am never too far away from a book. Even with all the advances in technology, I still prefer to clutch them in my hands.

Today as I read this passage in Deuteronomy 29:18, So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders, I was reminded of the importance of maBOAT_HANDS_(2)king THE BOOK the number one book I keep grasped in my hands.

His Word was not meant to be tucked away on shelves only to be brought out on special days of the week. The more our hands are found tied to His Word the more seeps down into the crevices of heart. And just when life dishes out something you think you can’t handle, the Holy Spirit brings to your remembrance a word…the Word that sustains, comforts, guides or corrects.

May a hunger for His Word be stirred a fresh in each of us today.

When I quench my thirst with the Word of God, nothing else matters.

The answer to every problem is in the Word, we just need to keep digging deeper.

Praise the Lord:)
