The Power Of Memorising Bible Verses

If you are able to, I would strong recommend committing some Bible verses to memory, this is one way to meditate on scripture. The Psalmist talks a lot about meditating on truth such as: God’s promises (Psalm 119:148), his works (Psalm 143:5), and his unfailing love (Psalm 48:9).

On countless occasions the Holy Spirit has gently reminded me of a scripture I know and need to hear in the situation I am facing. I am so grateful for this, God has used scripture in this way to encourage me, to give me strength and peace. Below are some of my favourite Bible verses. Something I learnt when my health was poor is that you don’t have to read chapters and chapters of the Bible for God to speak to you through it. Reading a single verse and mulling it over can be really powerful.

I hope the verses encourage you as an individual, I would also strongly urge you to get into the habit of sending people verses. I don’t think that people who sent me verses when I was chronically ill, will ever know how much I was encouraged and uplifted by them. It made me feel like they were walking with me and helping me keep praying and praising God by. A bit like when Moses was weak and so Arron and Hur helped him to pray by holding his arms up (Exodus 17:11-13).

Next week I am going to explore psalms that I love and that I come back to time and time again.

Verses: 

  • The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still (Exodus 14:14);
  • I can do everything through him who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13);
  • For nothing is impossible for God (Luke 1:37 ESV);
  • ‘Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.’ (Matthew 6:34);
  • ‘The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.’ (Zephaniah 3:17).
