Memorizing Scripture


Emily Miller

We hear that we should be reading the Bible each and every single day. That is not a challenging thing to do once you get into the habit of it.

However, I believe that most of us, no matter how much we have been reading the bible as of late, struggle to really commit it into our hearts.

The act of Memorizing scripture is something that I believe has fallen by the wayside in today's culture.

It is all because too many things compete for our time.



Our marriage.

Our children.

These are all things that should have part of our time. Yet, we need to make sure to put a priority on being with God and committing his word to memory first and foremost.

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

-Joshua 1:8

The Bible should be the book that orders the rest of your life, but this only begins after you start committing the word to memory.

Not only does memorizing scripture create for a more orderly life, it creates a more joyful heart.

If you struggle with anxiety and depression like I do, memorizing scripture is a way to combat this.

For the more you commit the word to your heart, the more the word comes to mind over your anxious or sad thoughts and feelings, instead filling you with joy.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

- 2 Timothy 1:7

I would like to challenge you for the rest of this summer to commit to memorizing a portion of scripture, both for yourself and for your family.

You will be surprised at the profound impact it begins to have on your life.
