Do not forget My teaching, but let your heart keep My commandments. Do not let mercy and kindness and truth leave you instead let these qualities define you; Bind them securely around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

If we keep the word of God in our heart and coming out of our mouth.  If we choose to walk in mercy and kindness and truth.  If we bind the word of God around us.  Then these benefits belong to us.

What benefits?

Favor and high esteem with God and man. Health to our body.  Physical refreshment.  Length of day. Years’ worth living.  Tranquility.  Prosperity.  Wholeness of life’s blessings.

Of course, this is not all of the benefits of our covenant with God.  You will find many more in the Bible.  I just wanted you to enjoy a small taste of the wonderful benefits of the word of God.

Today, if you need healing or direction or simply a refreshment, get your bible out and study this chapter.  Declare these awesome benefits over your life.  Keep the word of God and the God of the word first place in your life.  As you do, you will find, there is great power in the word of God.  And it will produce great things in your life.  It is active.  Activate it in your life today!
