“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.”
Tying a string on your finger is a way of remembering to do something that you may otherwise forget. We are a forgetful people; often forgetting to do those things we should, and remembering only to do that which we should not.
The Apostle Paul admitted this trait in his letter to the Romans. He confessed that his flesh often got in the way of what his new nature desired.
Acknowledging and depending on the power of the Word of God is the only one way to resolve the conflict between our flesh and our spirit.
Three times throughout the Book of Proverbs it is written to “bind them” upon ourselves.
“Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.”
An ornament is often placed around the neck for safekeeping and held close to the heart with special meaning.
What are you keeping in your locket?
“Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.”
The heart of the person is displayed in their actions.
What is written on your heart?
“Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.”
We must do whatever is necessary to remember what the Word of God has to say in order to apply the Truth to our lives.
What is tied upon your fingers?
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
Binding His Word upon our lives is imperative to fulfilling our God given purpose.
