Day 24: Plan for next time {Tools for memorizing}


4  And you will say in that day: “Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted.
5  “Sing praises to the LORD, for he has done gloriously; let this be made known in all the earth.”
Isaiah 12:4-5 (ESV)

2  “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.”
3  With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

1. Recite it to someone else.

Try reciting all the verses in your chapter to someone else today. It’s a great way to review. And it’s also a great way to invite others to help you stay accountable in this powerful spiritual discipline.

2. Prepare for Monday.

Use this weekend to cut out next week’s verse (our last! Isaiah 12:6).


* Plan ahead

We are almost finished memorizing Isaiah 12. It’s not too soon to start thinking about what you want to memorize next.

Maybe it will be another chapter. Maybe it will be individual verses. Memory Classics was a summer challenge we undertook at Do Not Depart in 2013. This list of memory verses includes ones you may already be familiar with. Check it out and see if these are verses you’d like to learn next, or verses that you’re ready to review again.



There may be many verses that you’re familiar with from your past but don’t fully recall anymore. Don’t discount those from your list of verses to learn (again). Whenever I return to scriptures that I once knew but have grown hazy, I’ve been blessed even more the second time around. (Plus, they’re much quicker to relearn the second time than they were the first!)

Implanting truths deeper and deeper into your soul is always time well spent.

    So thankful for this series on Isaiah 12. It has made me realize how much I need to go back and review other chapters that I have memorized in the past — and also what a treasure it is to have Scripture in the heart.

      I’m glad this series has been encouraging to you, Michele! It’s been helpful for me too, even though writing everyday hasn’t always seemed like a good thing. ha. Going back to review previous chapters is probably the hardest part about memorizing for me, but I know it’s necessary. Thanks for your encouragement.
