5 SHORT verses

Memorizing scripture is so valuable and can really take you to new places in your faith. When we have God’s word ready in our minds and on our lips we are capable of fighting the days troubles with God’s strength. We do this through His truth found in the Bible which is described as “the sword of the spirit in,” in Ephesians 6:17.

The Bible is our spiritual weapon, and we’ve got to use it!

One of my very favorite memorized verses that is on my Favorite Verses Short List (this will be a future post title!), is:

Psalm 14:19 that says,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

This verse always reminds me that we can and should be meditating on (or focusing on/thinking more intently about) things of God. We can do this more easily and effectively when we’ve got God’s word in our hearts.

Do you desire to commit scripture to memory but just can’t remember anything for the life of you?

Here are a few very short, but powerful verses.

Try to challenge yourself and commit one to memory each week for the next five weeks! Or if you want to get really crazy, try to remember one a day for the next five days!

Practical pointers: Find the verses in your Bible, read them in their context and highlight them. For me it is easier to commit things to memory when I have understanding. Also, writing them down before bed and repeating them a few times out loud is helpful!

You can do it! Try to enJOY remembering them. Remember- it isn’t a chore to read the Bible, it’s a privilege!

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:17- Never stop praying.

  • Colossians 3:2- Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things.

  • 1 John 4:19- We love because he first loved us.

  • Psalm 136:1 - Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever.

  • John 1:4- In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
