Old Videos and Scripture

My son decided to pull the video Aladdin from our archived collection, circa mid-nineties, and indulge himself in some reminiscing. Awesome.

I sit here at the computer with my ears close enough to hear the dialog and songs. I am amazed at how many words I recognize from the movie, and how many words of the song I can still repeat as a result of seeing the movie numerous amounts of times.

I want God's Word to stick in my memory like an old movie I've watched over and over again. I want His Word's to be etched in my memory and to stick like glue. I want someone to begin the first words of a scripture, and be able to finish the verse from memory.

This comes from repeating verses over and over again. Filling our minds with scripture is so important. It is our best and greatest defense against the enemy and the lies he feeds our minds.

I love writing verses on sticky notes and putting in places I visit often. This is my favoirte tool for memorizing scripture. The sticky note in front of me now is a verse found in Ephesians 6:10-11.

"Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes."

I need God's Word. I need to be armed. I need His promises. I need Him.

Songs! When I learn a Bible verse to a tune, it is forever etched in my brain. There are also a ton of other little ditties in there, taking up valuable space.
