I have often found myself being prodded to memorize Scripture. I know that it’s an important spiritual discipline that God instructs us to engage in. I know that the benefits to hiding God’s Word in my heart are immeasurable. I’ve often thought what if one day I didn’t have such easy access to God’s Word as I do today? That surely seems highly unlikely in this technological era but nothing is guaranteed! Or what if, in my later years, my eyesight fails and I’m unable to read the Word of God but have only what I’ve stored within? So I’ve made the decision to memorize the Word. Over. And over. And over again. I start off strong and then fall away. Each time I make the commitment and fail, the harder it is to commit again. The excitement that accompanied that first decision to commit to memorizing has long since disappeared but the proddings to memorize and the reality that making such a commitment is beneficial remain. So I begin again – right here, right now as the ‘M & M’ Monday series begins here on the T2 Women blog.
I really didn’t expect to be making this commitment right now. But this I do know – the Lord is calling me to make it and in obedience I’ll walk forward knowing my only victory will come as He enables me to commit to memory His Word and to stick to my commitment.
How about you? Is He calling you to begin again to memorize His Word? Then why don’t you join me this coming Monday.
