We are memorizing Proverbs 2 and we are experiencing the blessing of God as he writes these promises and truth on our hearts and minds. We practice saying these several times a day but God is actually doing the etching. Thank you, Father!
“My Child, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and you will find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless. He guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Then you know what is right and just and fair – every good path.”
We will know every good path because – the next verse:
‘For wisdom will enter your heart and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.’
Do you feel wisdom entering your heart as we recite God’s words over and over every day?
There’s this supernatural thing happening as I say these words aloud several times a day. They become part of my thinking. They change how I feel. As I’m memorizing, I meditate over these words so much more than I did when I just read them and went on. God speaks to me all of the time through these words as I’m saying them over and over and adding on the next verse.
Is this happening to you as you memorize God’s words?
I also love the anticipation of what the next verse is going to bring up. Where is this search for wisdom going to take my thoughts?
And the knowledge that has come along with memorizing God’s word is very pleasant to my soul. As his words reverberate through my head during the day, he gives me a peace that doesn’t come from anything else in this world. He is renewing my mind….one verse at a time.
I’m glad you’re on this journey with me!
