"Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee."
- Psalm 119:11
 
The Psalmist speaks of divine revelation as God's Word. Jesus does the same when He says: "If you continue in My Word."
 
The Word of God is a unit. It is closely knit together and presents to us God's Law for man. From beginning to the very last chapter, God speaks to us. This Word the Psalmist has laid in store in his heart. It has become an intimate part of his life. It is an arsenal containing the weapons necessary to ward off any attack that may be made upon his faith.
 
So you ask how do I memorize Scripture? While living summers with my grandfather, who was a preacher, and grandmother, who at times spoke like a preacher, I learned to memorize. Grandmother had a jar full of capsules and inside the capsules were verses.  Every morning my cousin and I were asked to pick one.

By the evening meal we were able to recite it after grandfather read from the Bible.  He would ask what we learned from our verse. One evening I had trouble reciting my verse, but it happened to be part of the text grandfather had just read. He then asked what I had learned from my verse. I said. "I learned to try to pick one that grandfather might read."  We all had a good laugh and I never forgot that verse. It was Romans 12:1. My cousin got Psalm 119:11 (the easy one).
 
Hiding God's Word in our hearts
Will strengthen our spirit within
Giving the help that we need
To turn from temptation and sin.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - When the Bible becomes a part of you, you'll be less likely to come apart.
