I will meditate on your precepts
and fix my eyes on your ways.
I will delight in your statutes;
I will not forget your word
Memorizing scripture is a habit worth investing in. Sowing the seed of consistent scripture memorization can bear fruit in every area of our life. Memorization causes us to continually meditate on the truths of the word of God and provides immediate access for applying them to our thoughts, actions and life situations.
Psalm 119 reminds us that storing up God’s word in our heart is an antidote for sinning. Memorization is one of the ways we store up God’s word in our heart. We are hoping through this guide to provide a simple approach to memorization that is both easy to remember as well as practice. We have also provided some other helpful resources to encourage your growth in this important discipline.
Once you have identified the scripture you are planning to memorize, check to ensure that you are not memorizing a verse which can be taken out of the context of the general passage. You can typically do this by choosing to memorize the entire paragraph which contains the specific verses you are planning to memorize.
