Psalm 37:30-31 – Is God’s Word in your heart?

Today’s Reading: Job 4:1‐7:21, 1 Corinthians 14:18‐40, Psalm 37:30‐40, Proverbs 21:27

Psalm 37:30-31 – The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
and his tongue speaks justice.
The law of his God is in his heart;
his steps do not slip.

Observations:

  • Describing the righteous:
  • His mouth utters wisdom
  • His tongue speaks justice
  • The law of God is in his heart
  • His steps do not slip

I want to be a righteous man and so I need to be more intentional about putting the law of God in my heart.  As I read this Psalm I am reminded that it is from the overflow of the heart that the mouth speaks.  I also see that God’s word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.

Apply:  After my time in the Word today, I talked with Rebecca and we have decided to start memorizing scripture together again.  Our current plan is to start with two verses a week.

What has helped you to get the law of God on your heart?

  1. Sam, I don’t memorize scripture much, but I do read it a lot. Memorizing is great, but just reading the word over and over does seem to put it on your heart.
    Hope your memorizing goes well! When our children were little we would help them memorize using sign language. We have a book called The Joy of Signing that we went by, but made up hand signals would probably be good, too.
    God bless!

    1. I love the thought of using sign language in scripture memory. This is what Rebecca and I started on today: Isaiah 41:16b-18 “But you will rejoice in the LORD and glory in the Holy One of Israel. 17 “The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. 18 I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.”

  2. Wow, what beautiful word pictures. Wonderful promises! I’ll work on that one, too. I think I need it 🙂 All praise and glory to the Holy One.

    Thanks for sharing and encouraging through your posts.
