Memorizing Scriptures


Psalm 119:11 says” I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

Remember in Sunday School? Your teacher gave you scriptures you had to recite? Oh, I surely do remember those days. When we read this verse here the Psalmist is reminding you and I that we are to hide the word in our hearts so that we do not sin against the Lord.

When we memorize scripture, it helps us so much because we can use it the moment we need it, but if a person does not memorize scripture they are prepared.

The Lord in His Grace knows that you and I are not going to remember the entire bible verse for verse, but what we can do is start remembering some of the verses. Imagine if you would what would happen if a child of God never knew one verse in the Bible? It is even hard to even think about, right?

It is like a person having a flat tire and no spare in the trunk no jack and your stranded on a road all alone and there is not a single car riding by for miles. Surely you can imagine the panic look on our face as your jaw drops. In a situation like this it would take an act of God to come to your aid to help you get your car running.

Same analogy when it comes to memorizing scripture, there is a need for us to memorize God’s word. AMEN.

Lord God help us to memorize your word for your word is life to us.

  1. Once you get it inside of you it never leaves. It is always there for me with every answer.

    That is good. That is why we need to have a word on the inside of us. So we can quote it . We can not always run and get our bibles or phone to look up verses we need it on the inside of us.

    Have a great day.

  3. You too my friend!

  4. Memorizing the word of God is vital to our spiritual health! Now that we have scriptures on the the go with our phones, we tend to think it isn’t necessary. But when I lie in bed at night and I meditate on the word, there is something in my mind upon which to meditate. Peace floods my soul as I use those passages to commune with Jesus! Wonderful Jesus!

    We have all these things at our disposal. But there are moments when we will not be able to use phone, iPad, computers and bibles.

    Then what? We must have that word already in us. Amen.
