You probably get the idea by now. I have left a lot out and I could go on and on all the way to Revelation. Heck, I haven't even included the 230 times the word KEEP is in the OT in the NLT. This is just the beginning, food for thought. Do a word search in your Bible and look for the word KEEP. How does that change the scripture for you? It sure has made me look deeper into what God is trying to convey to me. Don't just read over your words, think about the very meaning they are trying to convey. KEEP, God's word in your Heart, KEEP God's word in your mind, KEEP God's word in your soul and KEEP seeking God always!!
