As we get older we realize there is one skill that really doesn’t matter- memorizing. When we do something enough it becomes second nature, but that is not the same as memorizing. Memorizing is defined as Learn by heart. It is not until we let it INTO OUR HEART that it will create a change in us. And that is how it is for your career, your faith, your spouse, anything. Once it becomes a matter of being in your heart you will cherish it and hold on to it.
I need you to quote that Bible verse from memory. It doesn’t matter until you take Christ into your life and the words on the page become real to you and you have a relationship with Him. You can memorize The Bible from Genesis through Revelations, but until you have a personal revelation of who God and His Son Jesus truly is, it does not matter!
