I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Psalms 119:11 NIV
It has never been easy for me to memorize scriptures. I often remember the words but not the text. I have-sword.net on both my computer and cell phone. If I can’t remember the text, I can search on the words or phrases that I remember. Search for a scripture enough times and I eventually will remember the text.
So why even bother memorizing scripture? It exercises your brain, but then you can memorize other things to do the same thing. God’s word helps us to understand God and His character. The promises give us strength during difficult times. You can share favorite scriptures with others when they need to be encouraged. Most important, as you hide His Word in your heart you become more like Him.
