What’s your favourite memory verse?
How about learning some more?
Have you ever had one of those moments where a verse you memorised has really helped you out? I have.
A number of times in my life, when things have been difficult, Romans 8:28 has really helped me out. The verse says "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
This verse has regularly reminded me that even though things may be tough or difficult, God is using every situation for my good. That doesn't mean that everything is going to turn out super, it doesn't even mean things will get better. It just means God is in control, and I can trust that he is working in my life through the good and the bad.
Why memory verses are a good idea:
When the apostle Paul was writing to his apprentice Timothy, he encouraged him to study the scriptures carefully. In 2 Timothy 3, Paul says this:
"But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 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."
Look how highly Paul values God's word! He can't emphasise enough how good it is to know and understand the scriptures.
Memory verses a great way to focus in and remember one part of God's word. As part of your daily Bible reading, why not try and have a 'memory verse of the week (or month)'?
