Accept my Words, Store my Commands

Accept my Words, Store my Commands
Proverbs 2:1

During harvest, farmers haul their grain in a truck either to a local elevator or to their own bins for storage. Before storing the grain’s moisture is checked; wet grain will not store long without spoilage. Dryers are sometimes used to dry out the grain in the bin until optimal moisture is reached.

The elevator probes the grain while the truck is on the scales getting weighed. The probe allows grain to be sucked from the truck into the office where moisture, and test weight are measured. Test weight is the weight of one bushel of grain, it measures the grain density. The higher the density, or test weight, the better. In addition to moisture and test weight, the grain is also checked for foreign material and insects; both are bad.

If all numbers are good, the manager or attendee directs the truck driver, with a green light, to dump the accepted grain. If the numbers are bad, the manager rejects the load of grain as it the grain is unfit for storage. Poor numbers lead to multiple factors of and methods of spoilage if left unresolved. Good, wholesome, grain may be stored for years if properly managed, the grain is stable and nutritious.

God tells us we are to accept His Words and store up His Commands in our bodies, and our hearts. Only good, wholesome, Words may accepted and stored; just like grain. God’s word, scripture, is stable and nutritious. Just like grain, it’s content remains the same; however with study we keep finding new uses and benefits of grain and Word.

If His word lacked purity, we would reject it like we reject poor grain; at the very least we would not store in our body and heart. Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Is wisdom found in storing poor products in this temple? Absolutely not! Knowing we are to accept and store the Word in our hearts and the temple of the Holy Spirit, our body, assures us of the Word’s quality and stability.

As you read and study scripture, God’s Word, give your heart, body, mind and soul the green light for accepting and storing the Word and commands of Christ – the Word made Flesh.

See Christ, Believe Christ, Achieve with Christ!
