Last week you put together a list of Bible verses and passages that you could use as arrows of truth to fight the specific lies that the Enemy tempts you to believe about yourself. I encouraged you to read through them daily, to begin wallpapering your mind with truth.
This week, we’re taking it a step further; you’re going to pick one of those verses to commit to memory.
You see, the lies swirling around in your soul have been there a long time, some of them since you were a child. They’re not going to disappear overnight. You need to replace them with something more powerful, more persistent. The way we do that is by renewing our minds with the truth (Romans 12:2).
If you’re caught in a situation that causes those lies to start stirring below the surface of your heart, you want to be able to draw on truth like a reflex. Memorizing Scripture will help you do that.
So, here are some of my favorite tips and tricks for hiding God’s Word in my heart. Choose one of the verses from the list you made last week and try some of these techniques out.
WRITE IT: By hand, with a pen and paper. Write out the verse you want to memorize three, five, or even ten times. Muscle memory will help transfer those words to your heart.
ERASE IT: Once you have written the whole verse out a few times, write it again, but leave a few key words blank. Each day write it out, omitting a few more words.
PRAY IT: Incorporate the verse into your prayers, believing God for the promises in His Word.
Are you ready? Let’s get started! I’ll check in next week to see how it’s going.
