Free In Christ-Wednesday Word

I have stored up your word in my heart,

    that I might not sin against you.

Psalm 119:11

It's that time of year where we make resolutions. This is the year of saving more and spending less. We will finally work out more. It's time to learn that new skill. This goes on and on. For most of us the resolutions fade out around March or so. I think the problem is the whole idea of resolutions to begin with. We have the idea that just because the clock and calendar change then we will experience life in a different way. But without a change of heart we will drag all of our mess from 2014 into 2015.

The psalmist here says that he has hidden the word in His heart so he would not sin against God. To be successful in life you don't need to make resolutions. You need to make an intentional decision to seek The Word with passion and hunger everyday. Decide today to hide the awesome truths of the Bible deep in your heart through daily study and meditation. With God's Word as your lamp in this dark world you cannot go wrong. Then when temptation arises you can say with Paul:

All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be enslaved by anything. 
1 Corinthians 6:12 esv
