Treasure God’s Word (4)

Treasure God’s Word (4)

“How I love your teachings! I think about them all day long.” Ps 119:97 NCV

You treasure God’s Word in three ways: (1) By researching it. This calls for writing down your thoughts about it. It also calls for asking the right questions, like: Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? In other words, your Bible study should give you insight, not just information. (2) By remembering it. You may think your memory is poor, but you’ve already memorized millions of ideas and facts. The truth is, we remember what’s truly important to us! And there are enormous benefits to memorizing Scripture. It will help you resist temptation, make better decisions, reduce stress, build your confidence, stretch your thinking, and enable you to share your faith with others. Your memory is like a muscle; the more you use it the stronger it becomes. Start by writing down a verse that has helped you, then carry it with you on a small card. Review it aloud while you’re working, exercising, waiting, and before going to sleep. The key to memorizing Scripture is—review… review…review! (3) By reflecting on it. No other habit will do more to mature you spiritually than reflecting daily on God’s Word. As you do, you’re literally “transformed into his likeness” (2Co 3:18 NIV). God called David “a man after my own heart” (Ac 13:22 NIV). And how did he earn that distinction? Because he loved to reflect on God’s Word: “How I love your teachings! I think about them all day long.” The key to successful Christian living is yours when you treasure God’s Word.
