“I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself.”
When we take the time to remember what God has done for us in the past, it brings comfort in the present. He is the same God today as He was when He came through for us back then; and He is the same God that parted the Red Sea and fed the multitudes. He never changes.
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
Remembering a verse or passage from the Word of God is invaluable in the time of need. We have the opportunity to hide the Word of God in our hearts not only apply the Word to our lives, but also to share the Scripture with others.
Memorizing the Word with keep us from sin.
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
Memorizing the Word will make us ready to share.
1 Peter 3:15
“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:”
The more we know the Word of God, the more we will love the God of the Word.
One day we may have the freedom of reading the Word of God taken from us, and be left with only those Scriptures that we have written upon our hearts.
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we must make an effort to memorize His Word.
Leviticus 11-12 | Luke 3 | Psalm 21
