Psalm 119:11

11 I have stored up your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you.

This article at Reformation 21 makes an excellent point about how our electronic devices may be preventing us from truly hiding the Word in our hearts. This quote is my favourite:

How long was Christ in the wilderness? Forty days and forty nights. (You know the batteries on pretty much any device have died by then.) What state was he in? Desperately hungry and thirsty. Who came to him? The arch-enemy, the Adversary. What were flung at him? A series of pointed and powerful temptations striking at his very identity and destiny. And what did the Lord do, without the help of any electronic aids or ready-references? He dug into the depths of Deuteronomy to bring forth three perfectly-forged weapons with which to smite the foe, three mighty “Thus says the Lord” declarations which shattered Satan’s assault and sent him from the field a beaten foe. The word was hidden in the Saviour’s heart, and he did not sin against God.

Excellent point. Let’s pray that our conveniences don’t prevent the Word from taking root firmly in our minds and hearts.
