Day 14 Biblical Womanhood "Taking a look at verses 11 and 12 of psalm 119"

Today we will take a look at verses 11 and 12 of psalm 119

 Verses 11-12 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.  Praise be to you, O LORD; teach me your decrees.

 First of all memorize His word!  It can help us when we are being tempted. We can remember  Gods absolute truth and apply it and obey it. " To have God’s word of promise laid up in the heart is the only security against being surprised into sin." *1    Second we must  humble  ourselves and submit ourselves to Gods authority in order to be taught His decrees by His Spirit. “We need to be disciples or learners— ‘teach me;’ but what an honour to have God himself for a teacher: how bold is David to beg the blessed God to teach him!” (Spurgeon) 

*1 The Pulpit Commentary
