Memorising Scriptures Is Good Spiritual Exercise

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth;but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous,and then thou shalt have good success (Joshua 1:8).

Some Christians can memorise and quote many scriptures off by heart, which is commendable.Whereas, some others erroneously assume that memorising scriptures is no longer fashionable. With the introduction of
different electronic Bibles and Bible software where scriptures can be located at the click or push of a button, many
Christians have relegated the importance of memorising scriptures in personal Bible study. This ought not to be so.Learning to memorise scriptures is a very fundamental part of good Christian growth and development. Even though you have easy access to electronic Bible reference materials,
you must exercise your mind to retain the Word of God. Your mind is the doorway to your spirit (2 Corinthians 4:4). The Word of God has to be in your consciousness to produce results in your life.When you have read your Bible, pick out certain verses and recite them by heart. This is the beginning of meditation,and the more you do this, the more the Word will get into your spirit. The same way you took time to learn and
memorise things in school, you have to discipline your mind to retain scriptures. You can set a target for yourself for the
rest of the year, to memorize at least one scripture per day,and measure your progress in it. You’d be amazed at the impact it’ll have on your life!

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for the
impact of your Word on my spirit.
As I meditate on the Word, and
retain those priceless thoughts in
my heart and consciousness, my
profiting appears to all! I function
always from a vantage point of
victory, glory, success, and
prosperity, where I reign and rule
over circumstances, in Jesus’
Name. Amen.
