God has given you the best computer ever constructed—your own mind—but it’s up to you how you fill it. It has to be filled with something, good or bad, and your reflexes are mentally conditioned to react in a certain way according to what you have learned or experienced. That’s why you could hardly accomplish anything more important than to memorize the Word of God.
God Himself is like the Great Central Computer. You can plug into Him and by His power, His Spirit, He can give you all the information, all the wisdom, and all the answers you need. If you’ll be faithful to read, study, and memorize His Word, then He can spiel it off by the Spirit when you need it. He will just pop it up in your little computer whenever you make the right connection in your programming (John 14:26).
Once you’ve downloaded God’s Word into your heart and mind, you just need to be a yielded instrument. Then God can sit down at the keyboard and get out of your computer the information that He wants, because your little memory chips will have the right data, as much as you’ve programmed them to contain.
Psalm 119:11 ESV – I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
Joshua 1:8 ESV – This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Deuteronomy 11:18 ESV – You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
Jesus, please help us to store your Word in our hearts so that when we need it, we have it ready to help us through the difficult situations in our lives.
