THE BIBLE

Step 1: Read and Meditate. The most common way most of us try to memorize Scripture is to read it over and over again.

Step 2: Write It Into Your Heart. Reading the Scripture is a great place to start. Reading the verses we want to memorize gives us understanding of the meaning of God’s Words and helps us to meditate on God’s Words.

Step 3: Recall the Verse. Recalling the verses you are memorizing is the hardest step. Repeat just the keyword a few times until it sticks in your memory. Those keywords will enable you to recall Scripture much more easily.

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

Psalm 119:11 NIV
