Has it ever crossed your mind that you are on a fools errand trying desperately to memorize Scripture? I think it is fitting that this Easter falls on what we call "April Fools Day". Truth of the matter is (and I am sure you know by now) that memorizing THIS MANY Scriptures is daunting & we are only getting ready to start #7. You may even be beating yourself up, calling yourself a fool, because "heaven knows you don't even have the firs six down" & "I might as well stop now" or even "it useless, I haven't been able to do it before, why in the world did I think this time would be different".
What I say to that is this, STOP IT RIGHT NOW!!!!! Have you forgotten that CHRIST is [in] YOU! He won't let you down. With the Holy Spirit's help you will know & remember what you need to remember WHEN you need to KNOW it. I keep saying this & I'm not going to stop. Give yourself GRACE!!! Satan would like nothing more than to convince you [in your mind] that you're a fool. Remind yourself that he is the father of LIES. None of it is wasted. In fact, when this is over your expectations will be exceeded. I truly believe that!
As I was reviewing Scripture that God has allowed me to share with you (see file below), I began to pray, asking God that He would show me which ONE was mine today. I kept coming back to Jeremiah 17:7, a great reminder of how if, my expectations are in the Lord, that He will ALWAYS exceed them. So here is my Scripture for 4/1/18
Jeremiah 17:7 AMP "Blessed [with spiritual security] is the man who believes and trust in and relies on the LORD and whose hope and confident expectation is the Lord." Cheryl M, Peoria, AZ

“For through the Law I died to the Law, so that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.”
