Thy Word have I hid in my Heart   Leave a comment

As I was studying the word this morning, I felt impressed of The Lord to write out those scriptures my dad taught me as a child. As I pondered on them, they kept coming to me like a river.. Chapter and verse… Word for word.
I want to encourage others to remember what the Lord put in their heart as a child, through our parents. Forward this BLOG to others and comment on it and we can all learn from each other. We all have different paths, but the same word that is the same yesterday, today and Forever!

Reminds me of these scriptures:

Hebrews 13:7-8 (KJV)
7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

Isaiah 55:11 (KJV)
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Here are the Scriptures my Dad taught me when I was young:

Isaiah 53:4-5 (KJV)
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

John 1:1 (KJV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Romans 6:23 (KJV)
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 8:28 (KJV)
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

1 Corinthians 15:57 (KJV)
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Philippians 4:19 (KJV)
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

1 John 1:9 (KJV)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

So what are those scriptures that your loved one taught you when you were little that you still remember? CHAPTER AND VERSE?

Oh and my mom sat down with me and taught me to memorize this one:

Joshua 1:8 (KJV)
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

About two months ago I was praying with my friend and we were interceding for our siblings to grow closer to the Lord and all of the sudden I stopped the prayer and quoted the verse above from Joshua 1:8
My prayer partner asked me about it and I prophesied that our siblings would remember those scriptures our parents had taught us as children.

The next day I received a text out of the blue from my brother with Joshua 1:8…

This is not typical of my brother.. He couldn’t quite remember who taught it to him.. But he remembered that this book of the law shall not depart from out of my mouth..the whole verse!

The Word of God is true!

Psalm 119:11 (KJV)
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Amazing! Thank you Jesus!
Enough said! Praise be to God!
