Do You Forget What You Should Remember?

“How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”

Psalm 119:9-11

Ponder This

When you have Scripture in your heart and mind, your heart and mind are tied up in who God is. Casual thoughts and casual reading of the Bible are like a bee just flitting over the surface of a flower. Memorization is like the bee going down into the heart of the flower and gathering the nectar. Meditation is like taking it back to the hive and making honey out of it. We need to gather the Word of God, so we can meditate on the Word of God.

You see, God gave you a memory. So many people remember what they should not remember and forget what they should remember. What Scripture memory does is this, it helps you remember what you should and to forget what you should. The mind is a marvelous thing. A mind can think about itself thinking. It’s an incredible thing. And you can hide God’s Word in your heart. This is why the Psalmist says, “Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You.”
