Memorizing anything.. a poem, a song or a quote is great for your brain. But, the most powerful thing you can memorize is passages from the most popular and influential book of all times: the Bible.
I recently came across a great app for my iPhone: Bible Memory Verses. The app has 1,000 Bible verses and 4 Versions of the Bible: ESV, KJV, NASB, NIV. But my favorite feature is the ability to put in your own verses from your preferred Bible version.
This week I am memorizing Jeremiah 29:11-13: NIV
“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.’”
I added my own version, then using the random blank feature, it looks like this:
You can also use the app to find verses to memorize, or just to discover what the Bible has to say about particular topics. Verses can be reviewed in Bible order, by Topic, or by verse rank (1 – 200) using the Top 200 system which lists the top 200 verses searched for on the internet.
Memorizing the Bible is one of the most powerful tools that you can use to live a great life. Try it… you’ll like it!
