Are you losing your joy?

Do you want to be wise in relationships, finances, business and every other area of your life?

The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. Psalm 19:7-11

My story …

In 2007, I began memorizing entire books of the Bible and it is the one habit that has totally changed my life. In my early years of attending children’s Bible class, I attempted to memorize one verse a week but that did not translate to a life-long habit. Also, by learning only one verse, here, there and everywhere, my theology was somewhat disjointed and it was common to take Scripture out of context.

Doing this changed my life – memorizing books of the Bible. Here are ten awesome reasons why memorizing whole books of the Bible can also change your life:

1) You will remember easier.

The entire Bible is God’s great love story of redemption from Old Testament to the New Testament. It’s messages are beautifully woven through stories, songs, sayings, revelations, poetry, and letters. A verse is connected to verses before and after it and they all come together in chapters and books to relay messages. Everything has cohesion.

By memorizing an entire book, you would be able to connect the entire story of the author and discover a deeper understanding of the author’s message and intention. Therefore, its connectivity makes it easier to memorize books than verses scattered throughout the Bible.

2) You will understand the context of the Scripture.

How many times do we take a Scripture verse out of context? When you repeat an entire book over and over (again and again) as a whole, it’s more difficult to misinterpret. You will be better able to identify when inaccurate teachings and thus protect yourself. Additionally, I have found that my convictions became stronger and my understanding of core doctrines became clearer.

Of course, applying in-depth Bible study will unearth the riches that cannot be found by merely surface reading but memorizing definitely helps with understanding the author’s intent. Going over a text over and over is actually the first step to proper study of the Word.

3) Your faith in God will increase.

My husband thinks that God answers all my prayers. I don’t know about that but my faith in God has grown astronomically because I’ve internalized large portions of Scripture. The Bible is not a composition of mere stories, but its words are in fact powerful. My faith in God made my prayers a true weapon of warfare.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

4) Your prayers will be ignited.

When you know the Word, you can quote the Word when you pray. Since the Word is very powerful, it will give a measure of power to your prayers because they are backed by an all-powerful God who inspired the Word in the first place. Your own words can never compare to the power of God’s Word.

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

5) Your love for God will be revived again and again.

When you memorize Scripture, your heart will begin to appreciate even more what God has done through Jesus Christ. You will be humbled that God extended His love to you because of His grace. You will understand the gospel more and appreciate your salvation in a deeper more meaningful way.

When I’m singing to God, many times I find myself in tears because the Word in my heart brings to my mind God’s love and grace to me through His wonderful gift of salvation. My heart overflows with joy and it revives my love for Him continually. Many times, when I recite Scripture, I even sense God’s presence.

6) It can be so much fun.

Think about the circumstances surrounding the text and the mood of the author. Perhaps you can act it out. I have fun dramatizing a passage than simply repeating it. I go in front of the mirror and let the drama begin! For those of you who like to sing, you can apply a rhythmic beat to it. Do whatever suits your fancy. The important thing is to have fun doing it.

7) It will give you wisdom and change your character.

God’s Word is filled with wisdom for every area of our lives. When you repeat His wisdom of God over and over, it moves from your head to your heart. As you apply it, you will begin to make wiser choices and it will begin to transform your character.

8) It is good for your brain.

I think my ability to remember details has improved since I’ve started memorizing books of the Bible. My focus is also better.

9) It helps to combat over-analyzing and depression.

If you’re the type of person who is prone to overthinking a situation; you have difficulty resting because your mind is constantly racing; you tend to focus on the negatives of life; or self-introspect to the point of depression, then memorizing books may be helpful for you.

Memorizing books of the Bible will help you to train your thoughts. Instead of being bombarded by unproductive thinking, the large reservoir of the Word in your mind will begin to transform your thought life. I heard about two people who overcame depression by memorizing large portions of the Word. The Word will even change any depressing thoughts about being single.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8

10) You will be strengthened to overcome sinful tendencies.

Are you struggling to live the Christian life? Do you consistently feel defeated by sinful habits? The good news is that the truth of the Word has the power to penetrate your hearts; wash your mind; and give you the power to live in victory. Ignorance is stifling your growth and your soul is starving.

You’re living on spiritual ‘crackers’ when God has provided a magnificent delightful spread of truth and freedom in His Word. Knowing a few verses throughout the Bible is insufficient to win the war that is against your soul. As you shower your soul with the Word, you’ll begin to overcome and blossom in ways that you never thought possible. Instead of feeling like a victim, you’ll begin to feel stronger to fight against sinful tendencies.

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:11

My challenge to you

I would like to encourage every single woman to cultivate this habit of memorizing whole books of the Bible. Memorizing the first five books of the Bible was a common practice among devout Jews. If they can do it, we can too!

We’re not doing it to boastfully quote Scripture to impress others. Our motivation is to know the Word so that it draws us closer to God; to become more like Christ; and to equip us to be instruments of blessing to the world.

Honestly, it does require time and discipline but it’s so worth it! Scripture memorizing does not replace Bible study, but it surely helps it.
