Proverbs 7:1-3

“My son, keep my words,

And treasure my commands within you.

2 Keep my commands and live,

And my law as the apple of your eye.

3 Bind them on your fingers;

Write them on the tablet of your heart.”


Jesus taught us the Lord’s Prayer so that we pray to the Father to give us our daily bread. Jesus said in John 4:32-34, “…I have food to eat that you know nothing about…My food…is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” There is something more important than the food on the table, healing, blessing, breakthrough that we are looking for in this life. Notwithstanding, we need those things as long as we live here on earth, they are all earthly things. Therefore, do not set your heart on what is earthly. Let us remember there is life after life. What are we going to bring to the life after life, before God? Earthly things end as life is over. But there is only one thing that is eternal that we will one day bring to see the Father – the Word of God in our heart, His commands. The Word of God in our heart is our ticket to eternal life.


In Matthew 22:21 Jesus said, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” What is of God must return to Him. With the Word of God in your heart, you can one day return to Him in the world of glory. God’s Word is Spirit that created the material world. This means, the Spirit is superior. Why then, today do people adore the inferior, instead of the superior?


Do you know that from the beginning, God wanted men to appreciate the superior? Adam and Eve failed the test of faith to keep the superior command of God because the inferior looked very tempting. I pray that God would strengthen you to treasure the Word of God with all your heart in all you do as it is the ticket to eternity, in Jesus’ name.


“Those who serve God with their heart are those who allow God to give birth to their heart’s desires. These are those who put God to where He really belongs: not in the luggage compartment, not in economy class, not in business class not in first class by in the cockpit !!! For them God IS THE PILOT IN COMMAND. Their heart is the cockpit where God dwells and files the flight plan: God decides the destination and the itinerary leading safely to that place at God’s appointed time.”


“If we were to see things the way God does, we would see the immense value of godly character that comes from loving God and shunning evil. In fact, it is the most precious thing that we possess in God’s sight.”


“Ask anyone and they will tell you that they long to hear from God, to have a personal encounter with Him, to know His will and direction for their life. But many of us fail to realize that often God gives us an appointment in the wilderness.”
