We are to store the word of God in our heart because out of the mouth speaks what the heart is full of and the tongue has the power of life and death.
Storing his flawless word in our heart better equips us to respond to people and circumstances in our lives with the power, authority, love, grace, kindness, peace and goodness found only in the heart of the Father making it more likely to speak life and less likely to speak death into another.
If you are not storing up God’s word in your heart, what are you storing? Will it bring life such as cheer, joy or encouragement or will it cause sorrow, anxiety or discouragement?
“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
Proverbs 18:21 NIV
“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”
Psalms 119:11 NIV
