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)

New Year - back in gear! Psalm 1 Review

Time to get this going again.

One of my excuses for not getting back into this was that the NIV 1984 edition was no longer available on my Bible apps, so it was more difficult to review.  Well, I solved that problem by creating Voice Memos on my iPhone for everything I've memorized.  With that no longer a legitimate excuse, here we go :)  And Janet Pope herself emailed me a few app suggestions that might solve the problem as well.

Speaking of Janet Pope - she has a new blog with some great inspiration for scripture memorization.  Check it out!

I am now starting to memorize in the ESV.  In all the new memorizing we do, I will include NIV and ESV options - you can feel free to memorize in any translation you choose!

We're going to take some time to review all the chapters we've memorized previously, and then continue on in James.

Today I'm reviewing Psalm 1.

Psalm 1

Blessed is the man
    who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
    or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
    Whatever he does prospers.
Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff
    that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked will perish.

Tomorrow will be Psalm 23.
