How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your Word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
We live in an impure, greedy and self-serving society, constantly bombarded with the temptation to fulfill selfish desires. The only way to keep our way pure is to stay in the Word. If we will seek the Lord with an honest heart He will keep us from straying. Hiding His word in our hearts is crucial to success in all types of temptation.
I pray the prodigal will experience a life spent in the Word and have a heart that seeks after God. May they discover the huge difference it makes when they hide His Word in their heart and draw on it in times of temptation.
