a smörgåsbord of Bible memory methods

The benefits of hiding God’s Word into your memory are innumerable. It’s a good cure for spiritual Alzheimer’s. Recently I have been challenged to get back into the daily habit of digesting the Word. It’s proved to be a delicious buffet that I am eager to go back to for seconds, thirds, and much more.One of the most unique and purposeful ways to memorize the Word is this suggested method:

Prepare – survey it, visualise it, see it, carry it

Repeat – read it, say it, write it, hear it, walk it, sing it

Recall – reread and check it, reflect and pray it, use it

Reinforce – trace patterns, know why, learn with others, study it, teach it

Review – forget it, review it

This method was taken from a post by at The Briefing on June 21, 2012. I encourage you to read the full version HERE. If you want more ideas here is a Smörgåsbord of helps for Bible memorization:
