If you do this hard thing, there are some big wins in it for you. Really big wins. Are you tired of doing the things that you don’t want to keep doing? Do you wish you could change? Do you want your life to be different? This is a big resource for you. This could be what you need to get things moving in a new direction. Know why? Because... This. Is. Powerful. That is why it is hard and daunting. Satan does not want you to do this because it gives you access to God’s power. The enemy will fight you in this because he would much rather you stay where you are rather than see you move forward in strength and in the authority of God.
Memorizing scripture brings focus to your life. Memorizing verses will cause you to spend time directing your thoughts to the things that God wants for your life rather than the things that this world is pressuring you to do. When you need to make a decision, these words will spring to mind in just the right moment. God will use these words to guide you and protect you. The Spirit will use these truths to shape you to look more like Jesus. These words will make you better at life.
Scripture verses you can say with your mouth, head, and heart at anytime of the day or night, when you are facing any situation, can bring clarity and direction for how you should act. These words of truth and power can inform your decisions. If you want to know what God wants you to do, learn His Words. Consider this an invitation from God. Each challenge verse gives you an opportunity to change how you live your life.
My brain cells are abandoning me!
Some have run off...
Some snuck away when I wasn't looking...
Some have been lost...
Some have been donated to lots of great causes....
Some just gave up.
Some walked away.
Rally the rest. Close the hatch. Reconvene the party.
My brain cells have a new mission...
a new PURPOSE!
“Could there be any better investment of our time, or any greater exercise for the mind than to fill our heads with memorized scripture?
