LeRoy Eims on the importance of Scripture memory: "I think two of the master strokes of the devil have been to convince people he doesn't exist, and that Scripture memory is only for children. He remembers the humility of defeat when Jesus Christ, who was tempted in all points like as we are, met him with the Word of God." (What Every Christian Should Know About Growing; p. 26-27)

Psalm 46:7

Psalm 46:7
The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Begin your day by reviewing v1-6.

Verse 7 is another short one, but if you need to take it one phrase at a time, that's ok too.

It does take some people longer to memorize than others.  It does take some people more repetition or shorter phrases.  And that's ok!  Even if it takes you longer, it's still possible.  It's simple repetition, over and over until you have it solidly in your head.  If you need to do one phrase a day, do it!  This is not a race.  This is a process of hiding God's Word in your heart, for all the spiritual benefits that come with it, and out of obedience to Him.  Anything you know today, no matter how short, is something you didn't know tomorrow.  And that's all He's asking for! Do not get hung up on perfection.

This verse is so comforting.  Despite the storms in our life - whether from nature, from people, from circumstances, etc - this truth remains.  The Lord Almighty is with us.  He is our fortress.  He is our strength.  And He will never leave us or forsake us.  He is with us through the storms, every single one of them.
