What is stored in your heart decides how you live your life. It either builds you up or it destroys you and those around you. How can a person live a life that is holy, wise and good?

The Psalmist in the Bible says: “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you” (Psalm 119:11).

We all have our own sinful behavior and weaknesses. It can be a short temper, a tongue that likes to gossip, or it can be a heart that is easily worried or upset. You need to memorise Bible verses that address your problem. Then, in moments of weakness when you are about to behave in ways that are displeasing to God, the Holy Spirit will recall to you the Bible verse that you have memorized to stop you from sinning or direct you in the way you should walk because

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Tim 3:16-17).

The reason why God’s Word is so powerful is because it is truth and hence will direct you to walk in ways that are safe and life giving. God’s Word has also been worded in such a way that it is persuasive so that it moves your emotion to obedience. It is powerful and is capable of defeating the great adversary of our soul, Satan.

If you faithfully memorise God’s Word, you will be richly rewarded because the Word of God will direct you to live and walk in ways that are safe, wise and life giving. Hence, work hard at scripture memory.
