In the first part of this teaching we studied David's practice - "I have stored up your word in my heart." We studied what David did. He stored up the Word. And we studied the place where he did this. He stored it up in his heart.
David didn't just read the Word aimlessly. He treasured the Word in his heart because he had made a wonderful discovery. He found, as he loved and studied the Word of God, a process taking place in his life. He found holiness forming in his life. He found changes taking place in his thoughts. He found his desires experiencing a noticeable metamorphosis. Things that were ugly were turning into things that were beautiful.
And he found freedom. He found freedom from sins he thought would dominate his life forever. He could relate to the words of the apostle James in James 1:25 - "But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing."
"The law of liberty." That's it exactly. Divine possibilities open up. The Word treasured in David's heart was unclogging the spiritual arteries of his heart. There was fresh power and life. So David treasured the Word with a purpose - "I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you."
