Deuteronomy 6:8

And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

Let me ask you some questions. What was the purpose for binding the commandments to our hand? Why would we want to put the commandments as the frontlets between our eyes? If you look at some of the verses before this verse we see that God says and ” these words which I command thee this day shall be in your heart.”

As the topic suggests, we need to hold onto the Word of God. Something the church needs to consider… God gave these commandments for purpose. God knew that the world would come into a place of evil. We are to hold onto the Word of God for this purpose. Holding on to the Word of God is more than just keeping your Bible in your house or on your shelf. Holding on to the Word of God is about reading, meditating, searching, inquiring, requiring, teaching and living. There is a lot more but for discussion reasons I will just talk about the purpose of living by the Word of God.

I believe one of the purposes of having the Word of God in your hands is to keep your hands occupied and not doing foolish things. The Bible is the viable source for everything! It’s important to note that if you are not using your Bible then most likely you are not going to win every victory. God wanted the Word of God to be bound on our hand and as frontlets between our eyes so we can stay focused on Him and on His Word.

If we are going to stay victorious then we will need to have the Word of God on us and in us. We do this by staying consistent in reading and meditating on the Word of God. The scripture that says ” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” means that you can be strengthened when you read your Bible and when you meditate on the scriptures. The Word of God is strength to your navel and health your bones.

Keeping the Word of God before you daily will keep you from walking, talking and acting like the World. It’s a daily process but very achievable. Keeping the Word of God before your eyes will help you to make right decisions and to stand in the midst of adversity. The world is on a major downhill slide and those that are not holding onto the Word of God will begin to grasp at anything. What will you do?

  1. Paul says:

    Pastor Phil, Greeting’s. It good to read your post again. You talk of being victorious by holding onto God’s word. That’s exactly the message I heard last night from my Fijian friends in the Uk. “We are victorious!” When we have money or dont have it. We are vIctorious when we have a job or don’t have a job, we are victorious when thing’s go right and when they don’t go right… Why, we have the Word which is our victory working in us day by day.
    The Lord bless you
    Brother Paul
