DO NOT LET THEM DEPART FROM YOUR EYES

DO NOT LET THEM DEPART FROM YOUR EYES

Proverbs 4:20-23 (NKJV) 20 My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.

So, we have seen that we need to give the word of God our attention, and we are to tilt our ear towards it.  Now it says that we are not to let it depart from our eyes.  Well, how can we do something like this?  Can we just walk around with a Bible attached to our head so we are looking at it all day long?  No, I do not think our bosses, or others, would like that.

I believe He is saying to get the Word in our hearts so we can see it all day long.  We can write verses out and put them in our pocket, or different places, so that we will see it, and we can put it on our screen saver on our computer so it jumps out at us, but there is something about getting God’s Word in our hearts so that you see it all the time.

As we meditate on and ponder the Word of God, it stays before us no matter where we are.  The thing that I love is that when you need a verse, it just happens to come up at the right time.  Jesus said in John 14:26: “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”  Let us get the Word in our heart, and it will not depart from our eyes.

Confession: I make a decision to get God’s Word in my heart and as I do, it will always be before my eyes.  When I need His Word to help me, it will come up at the right time.
