Memorize Bible: 20 Ways to Learn Scriptures by Heart!

To memorize Bible means quoting the word of God for the benefit of yourself or people around you without opening the Bible.

This powerful act does not have a thumb rule on how to learn it perfectly because our ability to memorize bible is not the same. But today’s message highlights many practical steps that could help you learn scriptures by heart. I would also share the powerful benefits with you!

I would love to share the testimony of Rebecca Moffitt related to memorizing the Bible:

“The miracle is what happened (and is still happening) in my mind. It’s like the links of my chains began to fall off, one at a time. Where I used to worry, I have peace. Previously I used to be suspicious, but now I have certainty that all is well. Before, I used to dwell on my stronghold, but now forget to think about it.

Verses like, “…But each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed,” (that was me!) and, “…Humbly accept the word planted in you which can save you,” began living and working within me!

I have an amazing new weapon in this battle. The memorization worked to occupy my mind when I replaced those negative thoughts with my daily scripture.  James says, “…Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin…” 

Well, desire didn’t have a chance to conceive when I had my weapon, “The Sword of The Spirit,” at hand and was willing to use it. I’m an analyser (can’t you tell?) so I don’t want to overanalyse how this process began freeing me in a way I’ve never been free before, but God was answering my prayer and showing me the power of “His perfect word that gives freedom.” “
