The verses I have been memorizing this last week are all about the Word:
2 Timothy 3:16: All Scrpiture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuke, for correcting, for training in righteousness.
Hebrews 4:12: For the Word of God is living and effective and sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as to divide soul, spirit, joints and marrow; it is a judge of the ideas and thoughts of the heart.
Joshua 1:18, Deuteronomy 6:4-7, Psalm 119:11, Hebrews 4:16, I John 5:12-15
But here's what I have learned the most-
- When I practice the verses I have been learning, I forget about myself.
- Memorizing verses makes me want to memorize more verses.
- As I think about the verses I am memorizing, I learn about God.
- And I realize just how much I need Him - His mercy and grace, because I am such a sinner; and His daily presence within me, giving me strength, compassion, patience, love, and everything I need to become a little more like Him each day.
