I’ve been challenged over the years to put God’s Word to heart & in following Beth Moore’s blog I have decided to join her in memory work this year. While all she is asking of those who follow her blog is one scripture every 2 weeks, I am committing to 1 every week. I’m very excited to have 52 new scriptures put to heart at the end of 2011 to be able to battle the enemy with that I’m not starting this new year with. This week’s scripture that I will be meditating on, memorizing, putting in my heart is below:
Psalm 103:1 (New Living Translation)
A psalm of David.
1 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Feel free to join in. The more of us memorizing, meditating & taking to heart God’s Word the better we are able to take on the enemy that is running wild in this world we live in. I’ve taken Beth’s suggestion & picked up a little spiral note card book to write the scripture down in. As one writes the verses it is better taken to heart. The process is not just about memorizing scripture. Our minds fail us when tough times come. When tough times come and I can’t think of any scripture I will have my spiral bound note cards to reflect on and fight back with. As I meditate on these scriptures they will become ingrained on my heart so when my mind goes blank in a crisis God’s Word can just spill out of my heart. I hope you’ll join me. Feel free to use my scripture for the week or pick your own that speaks to you in your life where you are at. Either way, how cool will it be to be meditating on scripture together & what a difference will it make in the world around us the more of us doing this.
Praise God & Happy New Year! Watch out 2011 here we come!
