4. How to Memorize God’s Word

The “Topical Memory System” is a proven way to memorize God’s promises. You can start with the “Beginning with Christ” packet of five key verses produced by The Navigators.

One reason to memorize Scripture is because our memories are short. After 24 hours you may accurately remember:

  • 5% of what you hear
  • 15% of what you read
  • 35% of what you study
  • 57% of what you see and hear
  • 100% of what you memorize

Noted author, and counselor, Henry Brandt, in his book, The Heart of the Problem says: “I still consider Bible memorization the single most important aid in my Christian life and in my counseling.”

It’s actually easy to memorize verses:

  • Start with one verse.
  • Repeat it several times.
  • Explain it in your own words.
  • Say it to a friend.
  • Test and challenge each other to apply it.

Once memorized, review it without looking for 30 days. It will be yours to take with you wherever you go!

“How can a young person stay pure? By obeying Your Word and following its rules…I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You” (Psalm 119:9, 11).

5. How to Meditate on God’s Word

There is no better way to abide in Christ than to meditate on God’s promises throughout the day. Whenever something stressful happens (and it will), think about a verse that applies to your situation.
