Psalm 119:11 - How to Be Spiritually Strong.

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


   Years ago my wife, Cathe, and I were on a 
flight home when the pilot made an announcement 
about 45 minutes from the airport. He said that we 
would have to make an emergency landing, and the 
flight attendants would be going over the safety 
procedures with us once again. 
   Now, when the flight attendants went 
through those procedures the first time, I was 
reading a magazine and didnt pay that much 
attention. But things had changed. And youd better 
believe that I listened to the flight attendants the 
second time. 
   What made the difference? My life 
depended on it. (And by the way, we landed safely.) 
   When we hear the Word of God, we need to 
listen as though our lives depend on it because 
they do - our spiritual lives do. 
   Think of it this way. Were in a 
spiritual battle, and we fight a spiritual battle with 
spiritual weapons. Ephesians 6:17 tells us, Put on 
salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the 
Spirit, which is the word of God (NLT). Memorize 
and use the Word of God. 
   Soon after the famous evangelist Billy 
Sunday became a Christian, he went to an older 
minister and asked him for some advice on how to grow 
   The man replied, If you will spend 
fifteen minutes a day letting God talk to you 
through the Bible, and fifteen minutes talking to 
God in prayer, and fifteen minutes talking to 
someone about God, they will never write 
backslider after your name. 
   How does God speak to us? He speaks to us 
primarily through the Word of God, the Bible. A 
successful Christian will be a Bible-studying 
Christian, and a failing Christian will be someone who 
doesnt open the Word of God. 
   You determine what kind of Christian you 
will be. [Greg Laurie from Harvest Ministries; 


Christ's humanity was united with divinity; 
He was fitted for the conflict by the 
indwelling of the Holy Spirit. And He came to make us 
partakers of the divine nature. So long as we are 
united to Him by faith, sin has no more dominion 
over us. God reaches for the hand of faith in us 
to direct it to lay fast hold upon the divinity 
of Christ, that we may attain to perfection of 
character. And how this is accomplished, Christ has 
shown us. By what means did He overcome in the 
conflict with Satan? By the word of God. Only by the 
word could He resist temptation. "It is written," 
He said. And unto us are given "exceeding great 
and precious promises: that by these ye might be 
partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the 
corruption that is in the world through lust." 2 Peter 
1:4. Every promise in God's word is ours. "By 
every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of 
God" are we to live. When assailed by temptation, 
look not to circumstances or to the weakness of 
self, but to the power of the word. All its 
strength is yours. DA123 

God's holy, educating Spirit is in His word. 
A light, a new and precious light, shines 
forth from every page. Truth is there revealed, 
and words and sentences are made bright and 
appropriate for the occasion, as the voice of God 
speaking to the soul The promises spoken by the 
great Teacher will captivate the senses and 
animate the soul with spiritual power that is 
divine. There will grow in the fruitful mind a 
familiarity with divine things that will be as a 
barricade against temptation. The words of truth will 
grow in importance, and assume a breadth and 
fullness of meaning of which we have never dreamed. 
The beauty and riches of the word have a 
transforming influence on mind and character. COL132 

The heart preoccupied with the word of God 
is fortified against Satan.  Those who make 
Christ their daily companion and familiar friend 
will feel that the powers of an unseen world are 
all around them; and by looking to Jesus they 
will become assimilated to His image. By 
beholding they become changed to the divine pattern; 
their character is softened, refined, and ennobled 
for the heavenly kingdom." 6T616 

There is only one power that can keep us 
steadfast under the most trying circumstances, - the 
grace of God in truth.  YI 11-10-86
