Memorization versus Technology

We are losing our minds to the world’s way of thinking. Even Christians are forgetting that God gave us the gift of memory by which to store His precious Word.

Electronic devices are good in their place, but they can never give us life or accompany us to the grave.

When we are dying, we cannot hold a phone in our hands. If the only data we have is stored in our devices, our spirit and soul will have nothing to hold to.

As God’s people, we must commit to memory the truths of His Word. This is the only means for living and dying in peace with Him.

Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, teaches us the importance of God’s Word. The following are a few of these verses as my prayer.

 Psalm 119:

11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.

33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.

34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

58 I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.

83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget thy statutes.

92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction

.93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.

105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

109 My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.

111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.

130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

152 Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.

154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.
