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 139:2

Today is Tuesday, so review the book of Titus before moving on to today's verse.

Psalm 139:2
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.

Begin by reviewing yesterday's verse.  Then add on today's.  Repeat over and over throughout your day.  Find moments during your day when you can redeem the time - moments when your hands are busy but your mind is idle.  Running on the treadmill, loading (or unloading!) the dishwasher, sweeping the floors - they're almost endless when you start to purposefully look for time.

Today's verse follows directly on the heels of yesterday's.  God is omniscient.  He knows everything.  When I sit and when I rise really covers everything - He knows everything we physically do.  And, He knows our very thoughts!  The idea of that is conscience pricking, is it not?  All those thoughts you're so glad nobody can "hear you think".  Someone can.  There is no use pretending with God.
