Commitment Day 9
Memory in the Mind and the Heart
I mentioned in yesterday's post that I was planning to learn a verse by heart. I believe the ability to recall verses is so important. It can make the biggest difference in your mind frame, in reaching out to others, in comfort, healing, and guidance.
Scripture speaks to keeping Christ's word in our heart too!
"Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You." Psalm 119:11
Growing up with family and friends who know Christ was a blessing. A somewhat downside at time was always hearing about memorization of verses. I believe scripture speaks to knowing verses! I have done an inadequate job of learning verses by heart.
So, I am committing to learning verses. I think to begin I will learn a verse at a time. I hope it will become a verse a week, but I am not sure my mind is sharp enough to start that right away.
How do you hide His word in your heart?
