An Introduction to Christian Meditation and Memorization
SPECIAL NOTE: I experienced a computer crash this week and have spent most of my time uploading all my software and documents to a new Windows 10 laptop. Consequently, I have not had time to write my next post in this series. However, during my devotions I read this encouraging word from Joyce Meyer and wanted to share it with you as it is directly on-point to this series.
I Know This for Sure
“I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth.” ~ Job 19:25
“Let me tell you what I know” would normally be an arrogant statement to make, but today, I want to tell what I know about you and me as Christians. I believe this will be good news that will encourage you all day long and every time you remember it.
I know that we are children of God, and that we are called, anointed, and appointed by Him for greatness. We are destined to bring God glory and be molded into the image of Jesus Christ. We have – right now – righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. We are forgiven for all our sins and our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of life. Jesus has gone before us to prepare a place for us that where He is we may be also.
I know God loves us with an everlasting, unconditional love and that His mercy endures forever. I know that we can do all things through Christ who is our Strength. I know that God never allows more to come on us than we can bear, but He provides a way out, a safe place to land. I know that all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose.
Because you have trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, the words on this page are true for you. I want to encourage you to study and memorize God’s Word so you will be able to open your mouth and strengthen yourself with these truths and others anytime you want to do so.
Love God Today: Begin to recite your very own “I know…” statements. Build a good supply of them in your heart. 
Without taking the time to develop Biblical affirmations, we miss out on so much of what God intends for us through His Word.
In my next post, I hope to get back to looking at some techniques that we can use to meditate on God’s Word.
