Becoming A Keeper

Becoming A Keeper…

In Hebrew, policemen are called ‘shomreem.’ In ancient times the guards were also called the ‘shomreem.’ Shomreem comes from the word ‘shomair,’ which means to ‘keep.’ It’s a real important word in the Bible.

The Lord is called ‘Shomair Yisrael,’ the Keeper of Israel. Yet the word isn’t just for the Lord. It says in God’s word… ‘You will be blessed if you shomair.

It’s important to keep. Keep the covenant. the command, keep My way, keep My word, keep My Torah… keep. It’s all a matter of keeping. It’s written, we have this treasure in earthen vessels.

It’s not enough to have a treasure. A treasure must be watched, treasured. A treasure must be kept. It’s written that Miryam, Mary, kept all these things in her heart. If you want to live a life that is precious you must do the same. Become one of God’s shomreem. Become a keeper.

Keep His word in your mind, His love in your heart, His wonders in your testimony, His presence in your Spirit. Learn to be a keeper. For what God has given you… is for keeps.

“‘Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land.” Leviticus 25:18

Memorize Jude 1:24 – and dwell on it today: To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy–

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
