Dwelling On God's Word Can Change You from the Inside Out - Psalm 119:11

God's Word Changes us, God's Word is alive
Do you have difficulty overcoming anger, negativity, procrastination, irresponsibility, bitterness, worry, jealousy ...

Years ago I discovered a way that helps me deal with specific sins in my life. I think it will work for most people if they do it sincerely, from the heart.

Here's what I do: I look for Scriptures dealing with the sin I'm struggling with, write them on 3x5 cards, and go over them daily or 2-3 times a day, meditating on them.

This might sound simplistic, but it works because the Bible is living and active, penetrating our hearts (Hebrews 4:12).

God's Word accomplishes its purposes in our lives (Isaiah 55:10-11) when we let it dwell in us richly. (Colossians 3:16).

No, we can't change ourselves. But God's Spirit and His Word can change us. Like the Psalmist, we can say, "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." Psalm 119:11
