One of my favorite verses is found in Psalms 119:105. It’s a verse that even young children are taught in a hymn titled, “Thy Word.” Singing verses helps me memorize scripture a lot faster. While I love worship songs and songs that talk about everyday life with scriptures to comfort, lift, and empower my faith, hymns can also help with learning scriptures.
Psalms 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.” A lamp, in ancient Bible times, was a small handmade ceramic bowl filled with olive oil and a flax wick used to provide light. At night, this lamp provided just enough light for the person to see where their feet were walking along the path in which they were headed.
God’s Word, the Bible, is the lamp and the light that helps you in the direction you’re headed. When things look dim, when trials come your way, when your faith is being tested, remember God’s Words in the Bible as you read and meditate on them. It is His very words that provide you with the strength, the hope, and the faith to move forward.
Place yourself in God’s path daily. It’s not a race. It’s not a marathon. You don’t even have to sprint. Just place one foot in front of the other. Just take one step at a time, and watch how God’s Word will light the way.
If you’re just starting out your journey in memorizing scripture, write them down on 3×5 index cards, a 3×5 journal that you can easily take with you wherever you go, or buy a journal specifically for writing scriptures to meditate on daily.
Always remember, You are Magnificent, a Marvelous Work, and His Masterpiece.
