Day 31: Keep moving forward {Tools for memorizing}


We made it!

Today is the final day in our 31 days of “Tools to Memorize a Bible Chapter.” I hope you picked up a new tip along the way, and that you were encouraged by a new verse or two that you memorized.


* Review and pray through your chapter one more time.

Include thanks to God for sharing his Spirit with us in so many ways this month.

1  You will say in that day: “I will give thanks to you, O LORD, for though you were angry with me, your anger turned away, that you might comfort me.
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.
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.
6  Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.”
Isaiah 12 (ESV)


* Keep going.

In the weeks ahead, I hope you’ll continue to both look back over the chapter you memorized as well as keep moving forward with new scriptures to memorize.

Scripture memorization is a spiritual discipline you can practice your entire life, regardless of age or season. 


God is always willing to send us fresh insights into eternal truths if we’re willing to accept them.

Sometimes that means being uncomfortable. Occasionally we have to release an old belief that we’ve been clinging to, if we discover that it was wrong.

But the temporary discomfort of releasing old patterns of thinking and behaving is worth the trade for the lasting peace of transformed minds and renewed relationships.

God is consistently at work in us, bringing us into alignment with his beautiful message (and action!) of love and grace.

Scripture is one of his many tools he uses. As we learn how to properly discern and act on them, let’s stay dependent on God to lead the way and to motivate us to follow.
