Your Word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against You. Psalm 119:11.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
What do you put in your treasury? What do you treasure? What do you store in your heart, what do you write upon the tablet of your heart? What is the most important thing of all to you?
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:20.
What is My treasure?
You are precious in My sight, you are honored and I love you. Isaiah 43:20.
I made the world for you, I gave My Son for you, and I gave My Kingdom to you. I was in Christ reconciling you to Myself not counting your trespasses against you but accounting your sins to My Son so that you would become righteous with My own righteousness in Him.
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21.
Above all I give you the treasure of My Word in your mouth to heal you and deliver you from all destruction. Psalm 107:20. When I give you My Word I give you Myself and all that goes with that.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it. John 1:1-5.
My Word is the most precious treasure of all. I made and sustain everything by My Word and I offer My Word to you. And My Words are words of power.
“As for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the LORD: “My Spirit which is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your offspring, nor from the mouth of your offspring’s offspring,” says the LORD, “from now and forever.” Isaiah 52:21.
And I gave you Jesus as the High Priest of your words in agreement with Mine (homologia) so that they would be performed in your life.
Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession (homologia, which means speaking the same words in absolute agreement);
My Words are not idle words, they are your very life. Do not let them depart from your eyes, keep them in the midst of your heart, write them on the tablet of your heart. If you want a successful and prosperous life, you must hear, meditate upon, speak, and guard My Word. Joshua 1:8.
You got it! What? My Word, which the answer to everything. If you have My Word you have everything you will ever need or desire, but above all you will have fellowship with Me and My Son in the Holy Spirit, which is eternal life. When you have My Word, you have Me. And when you have Me, there is nothing higher, stronger, or better positioned to take care of you now and forever.
All the paths of the LORD are lovingkindness and truth to those who keep His covenant and His testimonies. Psalm 25:10.
My Word is My testimony to you. I gave plans to Moses for the Ark of the Testimony. And what do I testify to you? I testify to you by My Holy Spirit of who I am to you and of all I have freely given you. I testify to you in My Covenant Names that I am the LORD who heals you, that I am the LORD who sees ahead and provides for you, I am the LORD your refuge, I am the LORD your deliverer, I am the LORD your strength, I am the LORD of Hosts, and I am the LORD your shepherd and that you shall not want.
My Holy Spirit testifies to you that I remember your sins and offenses no more. Hebrews 10:17. I testify to you that by the Blood of the Cross you have peace and right standing with Me and are holy and blameless, beyond reproach before Me.
My Holy Spirit witness with your spirit that you are My child and heir and a joint heir with Christ. My Holy Spirit testifies to you about Jesus.
“When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me, and you will testify also, because you have been with Me from the beginning. John 15:26-27.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, testify to the good news of who Jesus is and be witnesses of all I have done for you in Christ and how I have been pleased to give you the Kingdom. A witness gives testimony.
Revive me according to Your lovingkindness, so that I may keep (shamar: guard, watch over, protect) the testimony of Your mouth. Psalm 119:88.
I directed Adam to cultivate and guard (shamar) the Garden. Genesis 2:15. He did not guard My Word and that left the Garden unguarded with respect to the take over by Satan of Adam’s dominion authority.
I have inherited Your testimonies forever, for they are the joy of my heart. Psalm 119:111.
My Word is My testimony to you that I am faithful, filled with lovingkindness (chesed) and truth (emet).
My Words are My testimony to you that My Name is wonderful and nothing is too wonderful for Me to do. That I am love and light and that I have prepared a life of good deeds for you in advance that you will enjoy it every day, all day. I am good and keep My Word to heal, provide, love, and help you.
My testimony to you secures you and anchors you in My magnificent promises. And My Holy Spirit testifies to what I have freely given you and to you in Christ Jesus your Lord.
I give testimony about you and you give Me testimony about Me. Just as My Word is testimony to you of who I am and what I have freely given you in Christ so your testimony to Me is about who I am . I tell you not to worry ahead of time of what to say to witness to Me, but that My Holy Spirit will be speaking in you of just what you should respond and say.
Can you imagine the Holy Spirit gossiping? Or complaining? Or letting off anger and disappointment? Never. Such talk would grieve him. Well, the Holy Spirit is in you, let Him speak through you and give you just the right answers.
Magnify your redemption and cleansing of sin and not your faults. Set your mind above where Christ is seated at My right hand. Your testimony will depend on where you have fixed your attention.
The Word must be settled in your heart of who you are in Christ to have victory. To speak victory you must know you have it. If you do not know to testify to who I have made you in Christ, you will not have peace.
“All your children will be taught of the LORD, and the well-being (SHALOM) of your children will be great. In righteousness you will be established; you will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; and from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. Isaiah 54:13-15.
You are My children in Christ and you have great peace only when you are taught by Me. My Spirit in you teaches you all things and reminds you of all I have said to you. Without being taught My Word you have no peace. You do not know you are right with Me no matter what you have done when you are in Jesus and have been washed clean in His Blood and the only way you will know that is by knowing My Word.
My Word is the most precious treasure of all. And I have entrusted My Word to you. You have a whole book of them. The Bible is the most precious, valuable, and important thing you possess. If you do not have and read the Bible, you have no defense against the fiery darts and attacks of Satan. He comes to you for one reason, to steal My Word from you and thus take you captive to do his will to kill and destroy your peace, your joy, and your fruitfulness. And that was the first parable My Son told, the parable of the sower of the seed of My Word into your hearts. Only those who received My Word, guarded it, cultivated it, and refused to let go of it prospered and had beautiful, fruitful lives.
There is a reason I tell you to seek My Kingdom first and My righteousness. These are precious gifts to you—for you who are in Christ, it has pleased Me to give you the Kingdom and all it holds now so you can access it in your life on earth as one in but not of the world. And it has pleased Me in Christ to give you My righteousness by putting all your sins on Him and cleansing you of all your unrighteousness.
And once you have received the gift of My Word, you are born again by that imperishable seed and through the birth canal of My Word you again become My child, My heir, and a joint heir with Christ. And knowing you are righteous and beyond reproach before Me by the Blood of the Lamb you are ready to resist the attacks of Satan by knowing who you are and what you have in Christ. You are ready to testify.
For the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night. And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony. Revelation 12:10-11.
Your greatest defense against the devil is knowing who you are in Christ. And it is only in My Word you will find that out. I have honored you by sharing My Word with you, by giving you My very self in My Word. Learn to live by, in, and through My Word.
The struggle is over, you have it all in My Word. You are forgiven, blessed, healed, redeemed, ransomed, and well cared for in every area of your life. I have given you SHALOM. Great is the peace of My children. Never again yield to the accusations of Satan to remind you of your sins, do not be sin conscious, be righteousness conscience. Stop looking back at the old man and look unto the new. I am doing something new, forget the past, it is time to go forward and take your promised land. But you can only do that and have direction and assurance for it by treasuring My Word and keeping it as the apple of your eye. A treasure you would give all to have and that still would not be enough, and yet I have given it to you freely.
Do you treasure My Word? Do you cling to My Word, keep it before your eyes, and treasure it in your heart? My Word is good news, the “too good to be true” news that gives you an awesome life of fellowship with Me, healing, righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
I love you. You are My treasure, am I yours? You will find Me in My Word and that is where I find you as well. Live, love, give, and hold fast to My Words. I can give you no higher or more functional gift. In My Word you have everything you need for life, abundant life, and godliness. And in My Word is pure delight and you will find it delightful to spend time in My Word with Me and get to know all I have freely given you for you to enjoy.
