To me, Proverbs 30:5 is the key to a lot of spiritual Truths!
5Every word of God is tried and purified; He is a shield to those who trust and take refuge in Him.
1If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
We are to live this life on Earth as ambassadors from Heaven! We should be spending time in His presence, time in praise and worship, time in prayer, time in study and meditation of His Word and time with like-minded believers! That doesn't leave much time for anything else! That's good! There isn't anything else in THIS world that can get us where we want to go - the middle of God's will for our lives! AMEN!
16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
How do you "let" the Word of God dwell in you richly? By doing what the rest of this verse says! Singing the Word is one of the BEST ways to get it inside of you! Then make sure that you are being a "doer" of the Word!
Shalom in Him!
