I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.-Psalm 119:11
What is the best way to fight against the temptation of sin? Very simply it is to know God’s word and to know it well enough that it can be used to guide and direct your life decisions. The writer of this Psalm starts off this section of Psalm 119 with the same question phrased slight differently, he asks, “How can a young person stay on the path of purity”. And he answers his own question in this way, “By living according to your word” (Psalm 119:9). You can’t live according to God’s word if you haven’t read it and understood it. That is why it is important for you to read your Bible everyday. Not to just check something off a to-do list for the day, but so that you can understand God and what his will is for life. The Bible is your guidebook that God has given to you. Put it to use so that you might not sin against God.
