Repeat to remember. That’s the ticket for memorizing God’s Word. Follow a progression of saying the verse 25-20-15-10-5 times on consecutive days. Then put the verse on a 3×5 card and keep reviewing. Walks are a great time to review verses, provided you can see. . .
For years, I would take a stack of Bible verses on walks. In one walk, I could easily review 50-100 verses.
Then I found that I needed reading glasses. While image is not something I worry about too much, I thought it looked a little strange to wear reading glasses on a walk.
My children started to protest when I wore both reading glasses and sunglasses. They thought it bad for their image.
Finally, I found a solution compliments of our friends at L.L. Bean. I discovered sunglasses with bifocals. Granted, they’re not Ray Bans. But I’m looking cool (or as cool as I can look) and hiding God’s Word in my heart.
Today when I go out for a walk, the 10 commandments are the first verses on my stack. I started memorizing these verses on July 13, 1991. I’ve been reviewing them ever since. Just give 10 minutes a day to memorizing Scripture. You will be amazed at the difference it makes. The Word of God is the means He uses to revive the soul! (Psalm 19:7-11)
