Here is one of a million confessions I could (and should) make:
I have been a follower of Jesus Christ for 25 years, but I have never made it a consistent priority to memorize Scripture.
Oh, you too?
I could write a whole post about reasons why I haven’t made it priority, and reasons why I should have. But let me instead just share with you two key verses:
Your Word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against You.
~Psalm 119:11 NASB
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.
~Psalm 1:1-3 NASB
I discovered a fantastic Scripture memory tool that I have been faithfully using (because it’s fun and does much of the logistical work for me) for about a month and a half. I LOVE it. In fact, I wrote the above Scriptures from memory because of it! If you’re like me and you’ve tried various memory systems throughout your life with little success–for whatever reason–then you might want to give this one a try. You might just love it! And you’ll definitely NEVER regret hiding the Word in your heart.
