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 139:1

First of all, it's Monday today, so begin the day by reviewing all the Psalms that you've memorized.  If you've been with us from the beginning, that's Psalm 1, 23, 46 and 121.

Now, moving on to today's verse....

Psalm 139:1
Lord, you have searched me and you know me.

Begin by repeating this verse over and over and over.  That's what memorizing is - repetition until you have gained the ability to say it without looking at the words.  Unfortunately, there's no other way to do it.  Some people memorize quickly and will need less repetition, and others may need more.  But the formula holds true - repeat, repeat, repeat.

Our God is omniscient - He is all knowing.   He knows everything about everything and everybody.  "you have searched me" - God is intentional about knowing us.  He wants to know us, and He does know us - and the amazing thing is, He loves us anyway, despite knowing everything about us, even the things we wish no one would ever know.  Isn't that amazing?
