Memorizing Scripture has been an area in which I’ve wanted to improve. I came up with a process that has helped me a lot. I wanted to share this to help others desiring the same thing.
Christians need to know the Scripture. We must arm ourselves with God’s Word and speak life to ourselves and others. The Bible lets us know how important it is to understand God’s Word.
Deuteronomy 11: 18 NLT So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7,9 NLT 6 You must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. 7 Repeat them again and again to your children…. 9 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Some things that helped me memorize Scripture are:
- Flashcards: I make flashcards of key Scriptures that I want to remember. So when I’m in a waiting room, on break/lunch, or have free time, I pull them out to go over.
- Scripture of the Day: I take one of my flashcards and make it my Scripture of the Day. I aim to have the Scripture memorized before I sleep for the night.
- Post Scripture: I take Scripture and post it around my home or desk at work. Examples: My bathroom mirror, my bedroom, and my computer monitor.
- Record Scripture: I voice-recorded all my flashcards and repeated each flashcard more than once. My recording is an hour long. I listen to this when driving, cleaning, walking the dog, and getting ready for bed. Sometimes I play this while I’m in bed.
Prayerfully these things I shared can help you in memorizing Scripture. If you have other tips for retaining Scripture, please post them below in the comments section. Stay Blessed.
