For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
hat has God written on your heart? How about that prompting to call someone, take someone a meal, or stop at the street corner and give that person holding a sign that needs money your lunch? Maybe it’s to call someone who you saw crying at church or to send a card to the widow whose anniversary is coming up. How often do we get that prompting from God when He writes on our hearts to reach out to someone, and we put it off, procrastinating, until it’s too late.
God often told His people to write things down, and I wonder, what He wants us to write down to remember.
And Jehovah said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. Exodus 17:14
What should you write down for your children and your children’s children? What miracles and how God provided do you want passed down? What about your love story with your spouse or Jesus? Maybe start a blog?
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deut. 6:6-9
We have a verse written very largely across our dining room wall where it is seen numerous times a day. Might there be a verse to write in a prominent area of your home as a reminder to yourself and family?
