Hiding His Word in my heart – Week 1
Happy Easter Sunday! He is Risen!
In our last blog we shared about a new memory initiative we are starting today called #hidingHisWordinourhearts. For the next 7 weeks, we will post a new scripture every Sunday and give you resources to help memorise scripture.
The first scripture is Philippians 4 v 6-7 which centres on us not being anxious, but with thanksgiving and faith, to pray and give across those things which weigh us down.
As promised, we’ve provided cue cards to print out at home. There are 5 larger cue cards, which have gradually more blanks in them. This is to help you to test your memory as you move through the week. There is also a smaller pocket cue card, so you can take it with you wherever you go.
You can download the cue cards and pocket card A4 file here.
Maybe these verses are already familiar verse. Do you think you know it by heart? If yes, then add in a few verses before and after this chunk of scripture and stretch your memory further.
The verses here are planted between some incredible truths in Philippians 4. We gently challenge you to read around this week’s verses, and see the context they are written in. We don’t want to only memorise scripture but desire it to sink deeply into our hearts and change us. So, what is God’s Word saying to you? Think on the ‘doing’ words of the verses. How has this verse been important to you in the past? How can you apply its Truth?
May His peace guard your hearts and minds as you pray, dwell, and give those burdens to Jesus that we often carry for too long.
We would love to hear how you’re getting on! Why not do this alongside others and practice together.
We pray God will bless you as you purposefully dwell on His word and allow the Holy Spirit to write it on your heart.
Enjoy the journey! We’ll be memorising right alongside you!
Love the Come Closer Team
P.S: Because we like looking at other translations, here is the Passion Translation of our verse for this week!
