When someone “binds” a label (or a so-called name-tag) around your neck, you might mistake it as your identity.
The truth is actually that the moment you “bind” God’s Word around your neck, (heart) it gives you your true identity in Him and from that moment on He equips you with the weapons to fight the spiritual war.
This word-based “name-tag” gives you access to certain places (God’s presence) just like a VIP tag would give you access to the “VIP places”.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.
Sometimes we get confused and don’t always understand what is going on in our lives, but in verse 5 to 6 we read that God will guide us. We shouldn’t worry about understanding things.
Bind God’s love and faithfulness around your neck.
If we wear our word-based tags around our necks, we will be guided by God.
Queen Latifah once said,
“Be bold, be brave enough to be your true self.”
Don’t let the world define you, let God and His Word define you. Never be afraid to walk in your identity in Him. That is the true you.
