This book of the law shall not depart out of thy
mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and
then thou shalt have good success (Joshua 1:8).
Today, having several Bible translations and the emergence of Bibles in electronic devices has made it increasingly difficult for many to memorize Scriptures. Very easily, you can search and locate
verses, and in different translations, at the click or push of a button.
But this shouldn’t take the place or relegate the importance of memorizing scriptures as part of your personal spiritual growth.
Memorizing Scriptures helps you exercise your mind to retain the
Word of God. Your mind is the doorway to your spirit (2 Corinthians 4:4).
The Word of God has to be in your consciousness to produce results in
your life. When it’s in your consciousness, it’ll be in your mouth; and the Word in your mouth is a creative force.
As you read your Bible, pick out striking verses and recite them repeatedly by heart. This is the beginning of meditation and the more
you do this, the more the Word will gain the ascendancy in your spirit.
Set the target to memorize a verse of scripture per day and measure your progress in it. You’d be amazed at the impact of the Word in your life.
The Word of God is working mightily in me, prevailing in every area
of my life, making me excellent in all things and in every way. As I
meditate on the Word, my profiting appears to all! I walk in victory,
heaping success upon success, reigning and ruling over circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
