MEMORIZATION OR ASSOCIATION?
The New Covenant established that GOD'S "Chosen People" was no longer based on "physical descent", but on Spiritual faithfulness. Those with GOD'S Words written on their heart would be GOD'S people. Have we become disillusioned and discouraged because we don't (or can't) rapid fire book, chapter and verse? When we read GOD'S Word don't we want to know how it applies to our lives, don't we want to know about GOD, know HIM personally, HIS ways, HIS character and to experience HIS guidance daily? "I have plans for you..."; "I know your name, you are MINE..."; "If you can't be trusted in small matters, you can't be trusted in large matters", or "You have not denied MY name..." Do you know where in Jeremiah, Isaiah or Revelation those come from, or do you have them on your heart and call them up daily for guidance, encouragement and sharing with others? Is part of of HIS Words being on our hearts, being selective what T.V. or music we listen to; who we associate with; or what we read? Psalm 119:11, "I have hidden YOUR word in my heart..." Psalm 139:23, "...Search me O GOD, and know my heart..." Did these scriptures go deep within you, where you trust the promptings of your heart more than the sight of your eyes? Did you use MEMORIZATION OR ASSOCIATION?
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
