Write It Upon My Heart

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
A psalm of David, one of the best known on the subject of writing God’s word on our hearts. There are around 100 of them from the Old Testament through to the new, so we should be in no doubt of their importance. The devout Jews had God’s word on their foreheads and wrists and some still do today, but God clearly wants us to go further than the outward appearance. To live out his truth, his love and his wisdom we need to have it within our very hearts and souls and as we seek to do his will the Holy Spirit will enable and bring it to mind in the circumstances and situations that we face day by day if we do hide his word in our hearts.
The persecuted church knows this well. If you have had your Bible taken away, they can’t take it from you if it’s hidden deep in your heart. This is becoming more important as the secular world and media has virtually closed down the Gospel and governments pass laws against God’s perfect law. Singing imprints powerful thoughts on the hearers and , most importantly, within hearts. It may become almost the only way to express the love and faithfulness of our God and Father and our Saviour Jesus as we seek strength in the trials and tribulations that are coming upon Christians and non-believers alike as our world becomes more and more man-centred.
May the powerful lyrics bless all who hear, just as they have blessed us as we have worked together to bring the message to life.
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
