How many Scripture verses can you recite from memory? Perhaps you know a verse or two from Psalm 23 – you know – “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want…” Or maybe you know the whole Psalm by heart. Or how about this verse from Psalm 27: “The Lord is my light and my salvation, of whom then shall I be afraid?”
When we know Bible verses from memory, they become part of our mental furniture, and they go with us wherever we go. And when we need comfort or strength, there is that verse popping up in our mind.
What about this Scripture for comfort and strength from Matthew 11:28-30.
“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
