Hide God’s Word In Your Heart
I have hidden Your word in my heart that I might not sin against You. (Psalm 119:11)
We all struggle with sin, and the key to overcoming it is by hiding God's Word in your heart. This can be achieved through the memorization of Bible verses.
What is the main sin with which you struggle? Go to Google and search for "Bible verses about [the sin you struggle with]." You will find a variety of verses that specifically address your sin.
Choose the verse that resonates with you the most, keeping it short. Then, write the verse down on 3x5 cards and dedicate time each day to memorizing it.
The key to successful memorization is to spend time daily on the task. Many people claim they cannot memorize, but the issue lies not in their ability but in their lack of discipline. Begin by memorizing the first part of the verse.
Repeat it out loud five times. On the following day, try to recite that portion of the verse from memory five times. Once you can accurately recite the first part without referring to the written text, proceed to the next segment.
Recite the first part, followed by the second part, all from memory, repeating this five times. Continue this process for a week, and you will have successfully memorized the verse.
Throughout your day, try to recite the verse from memory, and also share it with others. By dedicating just five minutes each day to memorization, you will discover that you can memorize a significant number of verses over time. This disciplined practice will assist you in concealing God's Word in your heart.~ Jeff M Newman
