VerseD: Psalm 119:11

I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
Psalm 119:11, ESV

This goes beyond memorizing Scripture.

We read, study, and share the Word of God that the Word of God (Jesus) dwells more deeply in and through us.

VerseD: 2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16‭-‬17, ESV

God moved through men to write the Bible. Every word of it can be used for teaching, preaching, correcting sinful behavior, and growing closer to God.

This is why we want to read it regularly. (Daily, if possible!)

VerseD: Psalm 46:10

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
Psalm 46:10, ESV

Do be too busy to leave out time for God.

Do not be anxious, remembering God is in control.

Stop. Spend time with God. Find contentment in His Word and presence.

VerseD: Psalm 19:14

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord , my rock and my Redeemer.
PSALM 19:14, NASB

Not only what we say matters, but what we think. We must let God change our minds – our way of thinking – if we want to be pleasing to Him.

VerseD: Psalm 94:19

When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.
Psalm 94:19, ESV

Sometimes we encounter difficulties in life that weigh on us.

God’s promises and encouragement can make the burden lighter and bring joy.

VerseD: Isaiah 55:11

So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
Isaiah 55:11, NASB

God will do all He has promised, the ultimate goal being the redemption of the Saints to the glory and praise of His Name. (And not necessarily our comfort in this life.)

VerseD: Romans 15:4

For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
Romans 15:4, NASB

All of scripture is to lead us to Christ and help us grow in godliness, encouraging us in growth and hope.
