Scripture Memory With No Excuses

January 16 2014

- Fighter Verses phone app Rocks!

Do you ever find yourself wishing you could memorize Scripture?  …perhaps washing out on a Scripture memory program after a couple of weeks?  This is certainly my experience personally and as mother.  No Christian who has read their Bible can deny the overwhelming blessings promised to those who store God’s Word in their heart.  God’s Word encourages, protects, and leads us through every obstacle we encounter—whether temptation from within or hard times from without.  Even though most of us would attest to these blessings, we also struggle with Scripture memory at times.

Two barriers for me are time and organization, and I have found an App which beautifully addresses both problems.   My family was already a fan of the Fighter Verse Program from Bethlehem Baptist Church, but adding this inexpensive app has made the program easier to use than ever before.

We began our year with Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed….”.  The verse has a song to make memorization easy and long term retention more likely.  It can be saved as your phone’s lock screen, and each time I pick up my phone, God’s Word is the first thing I see. How incredible is that?  If you fall behind a week (or several), you can just pick up your phone and that week’s verse is waiting for you.

The Fighter Verse Program comes with 52 verses a year for five years. There are quizzing options and you can save the verses you have memorized.  It brings memorized verses back up periodically to aid long term retention. There is even a “Foundation Verse” collection of very short verses with pictures for younger children.  It is highly customizable and searchable as well. The only thing I can think of that this app lacks is a brain memory chip to electronically insert the verses into your mind.  If you desire to fill your heart with more of God’s Word,  here is your chance to scrap the excuses and grab this app.  I can’t think of a better use of $2.99.

The battle lies before us, but we have access to “…the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God…” (Ephesians 6:17).  Fight the Good Fight, friends!
