Memorizing Scriptures

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

Remember when you was a child 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 don’t 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 aren’t 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’s even hard to even think about right? It’s 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. thy word have I hidden in my heart! I am afraid we have become very lazy in this useful discipline. We have become so used to being spoon fed that the joy of even reading and meditating on God’s word is seen as a chore. This is one thing every believer should rediscover… the act of memorizing God’s word…
    Thanks for sharing Minister Desiray. God Bless!

    1. I agree Brother Walter we have become very lazy we have enjoyed being spoon-feed that we don’t wanna do nothing on our own. And that is very sad and I know it doesn’t please the Lord.

    1. thank you Debbie, we all need to do our best to memorize scripture it doesn’t matter how much we remember it’s that we do it, and than when we need it, it will of already been in our hearts and we can speak it.

  2. I find especially in the hard times that being able to pull those scriptures out of memory to speak over myself and/or others is very comforting. Thanks for sharing, and reminding us to memorize!

    1. You are welcome Sarah it does help and it pleases God, because there are times when we don’t always have our bible with us and we can’t look up a verse but if we already have a few verses in us we can draw from it.
