I decided i’m going to Write a month long devotional, i’m only going to be posting the first day of it but then once it is done i will post the full devotional as a PDF for you all to download (If i can)
Your word I have treasured in my heart,
That I may not sin against You. (Psalm 119:11)
This Verse basically means that we should be memorizing scripture so that you may actually learn it. An atheist can memorize the entire bible and still be no closer to Heaven if they did not learn and take to heart what it says and follow God. People don’t often think about how memorizing scripture can help but think of it this way, when you are tempted to doubt or when you feel hopeless you have an Arsenal of Gods word at hand so that you may be comforted and be able to get through things. When you are evangelizing to people you need to be able to say scripture, you will never know what verses you need or when you need them so start now and keeping going as you go through life. Try memorizing a verse a day, if thats too much then try one a week, maybe even a passage a week.
My Church is doing a 16 week Challenge where we learn 116 bible verses, thats one a day plus a few as a warm-up. Suggest something like this to your Pastor or Youth Pastor or minister or whatever you have.
Challenge: Take the verse for each day and memorize it for the next week
Dear God, thank you for giving us your word so that we may learn from it and you Lord, thank you for letting us know so much about you are your will and for making it available to us all. Lord please give us all that we need to know Lord in the next few weeks and equip us for any challenges that come. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.
