For Walk with Him Wednesday, Ann Voscamp of @ Holy Experience asks us to post about the habit of memorizing Scripture.
There's that word ...habit.
But the habit ...of memorizing Scripture?
If you click on my 'About Page' on the upper right sidebar, you'll read the following:
"The focus of Heart Choices is ...your day to day choices will determine what your tomorrows will become. These choices impact your body, soul (mind, will and emotions), and your spirit."
Memorizing Scripture was much easier for me as a child. I vividly remember attending Vacation Bible school as an eight year old. Throughout that week, we memorized the whole chapter of Romans 12.
How often do you pray and ask for God's will in your life?
Memorizing Scripture is a perfect way to replace the lies of the enemy that often crowd our mind and thinking.
Will you make the choice to begin to establish the habit of reading the Bible and memorizing Scripture? This is a perfect way to allow His Word to renew and transform your thinking. Then you will know His will.
As an adult, I've found it a bit more challenging to memorize Scripture.
But I've made the decision and choice to become a life long learner. So, I refuse to excuse myself because of:
- My age
- No time
- Too hard
- I'll look it up when I need it
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge."
Will you make the choice to begin to allow God to transform your mind and thinking through memorizing Scripture?
