Boldness · Memory Work

memory work…

Challenged by the current Bible study to do some memory work… (emphasis on work…) of Scripture…

It is hard…
it is a stretching…
an exercise…
for my brain…

What I’ve found… as I repeat… over… and… over…
is that it does become easier…
however… the most important thing…
is the connecting of verses… phrases…
not only as they go together…
but as they connect with my spirit…
much more deeply than any cursory reading…

Today the phrase that rings fresh…
…we had boldness in our God…

That’s something I want…
that I might not have seen…
without this stretching of my memory…

Boldness in our God…
to trust… obey… serve…
declare His gospel…
live the gospel…
without fear or hesitation…

To be able to say…
I have boldness in my God…
and it be true…
would be something to be sure…

A phrase to pray…
only found because I chose to obey…
the prompting to commit His Word to memory…

Yes… it’s work… but a spiritual work…
well worth the effort…

I challenge you to memorize His Word this week…
a phrase… a verse… or maybe even a whole chapter or book…
see if it increases your boldness in God…

With my whole heart I seek you;
let me not wander from your commandments!
I have stored up your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you.
Blessed are you, O Lord;
teach me your statutes!
Psalm 119:10-12 ESV
Note… I’m currently using ScriptureTyper… a free online service developed specifically to help you memorize Scripture… it’s really helping me…
