5 Practical Ways to "Hide" God's Word in Your Heart

This short devotion shares an incredible story of one man's love for the Word of God and offers 5 practical ways to make it a part of our hearts. #BibleLoveNotes #Devotions

Imprisoned for his faith, Haralan Popov went five years without a Bible. When he found one, he knew it would soon be confiscated by the guards, so he memorized large portions, “hiding it in his heart” (Psalm 119:11). 

We can and should hide or keep God’s Word in our hearts, too.

Here are some ways to do that:

1. Meditate on Scripture passages by looking at each word and phrase separately, asking God to give you insight and application for your life. 

2. Write the passage and read it each day for a week or a month. This is especially good when going through a trial or overcoming temptation.

3. Draw a picture of the passage with symbols representing key elements of the verse. See my 1-minute post on Bible Journaling and an example using Psalm 37. 

4. Write the passage in your own words (being careful to stay true to the meaning). 

5. Like Popov, memorize the passage. 

Leave a comment and tell me ways that you hide God’s Word in your heart. And please check out a poem I wrote about this subject: A Woman of the Word
