Reasons to Memorize God’s Word

Forgetting a password can have lasting consequences. The United Kingdom-based British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reports, “One in seven people have lost track of their money sitting in savings accounts or pensions—with half blaming lost passwords.” The article reports that £2.8 billion ($3.5 million) in assets sits unclaimed in the government-backed National Savings and Investments. Remembering passwords in this digital age is essential to resource management. 

Even greater treasure lies unclaimed because of forgotten passwords. God promises to supply all our needs (Psalm 23:1; Philippians 4:19), strength to overcome temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13), and dynamic power to witness for Christ (Acts 1:8). If we forget to claim these treasures in prayer, we will not receive them. We must ask, seek, and knock (Matthew 7:7) according to His Word, if we would receive, find, and enter in. Jesus Christ “always lives to make intercession” (Hebrews 7:25) for those who, remembering God’s promise, claim this treasure. 

The great and precious promises are the passwords by which we access God’s blessings, and we must remember—not forget—them! The apostle Peter assures us that Christ’s “divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises” (2 Peter 1:3-4a). 

Prayer is sweeter when we see God answer. Jesus gives us the key to answered prayer in the Gospel of John: “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7). Glorious truth! There is power in God’s Word to accomplish what He desires when we ask according to His will (Isaiah 55:11; 1 John 5:14). God’s Word is creative (Psalm 33:6, 9), and nothing is too hard for Him (Jeremiah 32:17). 

Knowledge and faith in God’s Word are essential to receiving the answers to prayer we desire. Jesus longs to bless us more than we can imagine (Ephesians 3:20, 21), and we must believe that! Jesus offered to visit the home of a Roman officer, but the soldier believed that Jesus could just speak His Word and his servant would be healed (Matthew 8:8). The centurion had faith in God’s Word! Jesus “marveled, and said to those who followed, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!’” (Matthew 8:10). If you believe His promises and ask Him for what He has promised, it will make Jesus happy! Do not wait to feel or see results before you believe what God has promised. Ask God for blessings according to His Word and thank Him for promising and doing it. 

Often, when we are not abiding in His Word and meditating day and night, our requests are not saturated with His Spirit. When we abide in Christ and His Word abides in us, our requests will be those He will naturally answer affirmatively. “This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him” (1 John 5:14, 15). Amazing promise! 

Learning God’s Word has always been necessary for Christians. Bible memorization offers so many benefits: victory over temptation, knowledge in witnessing, and hope in difficulty. The ability to pray in faith, knowing God’s will and pressing requests fervently to His throne until He answers, is best had by those who abide in His Word. Those who are mightiest in prayer have hearts saturated and transformed by His promises. And one of the most useful weapons of a true Christian is the ability to recall Scripture when darkness brings discouragement. 

In fact, God prescribes Bible memorization and meditation to prosper and bless us. Psalms 1:2, 3 says of the blessed man, “His delight is in the law [teaching] of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” God commanded Joshua, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success” (Joshua 1:8). Decide to saturate your mind with the Word and begin with a prayer to do so, quoting the before-mentioned texts!
