I know of no other single practice in the Christian life more rewarding, practically speaking, than memorizing Scripture. . . . No other single exercise pays greater spiritual dividends! Your prayer life will be strengthened. Your witnessing will be sharper and much more effective. Your attitudes and outlook will begin to change. Your mind will become alert and observant. Your confidence and assurance will be enhanced. Your faith will be solidified.(Growing Strong in the Seasons of Life, [Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1994], 61).
1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
