From The Quiet Place: Daily Devotional Readings by Nancy Leigh DeMoss:
Both we and the generations coming behind us must endure a world that is often dark and distressing. We are confronted by challenges that seem to leave no other option than worry and panic. But His Word is our sanity. It is what keeps us from losing our equilibrium when all around us appears to be spinning out of control. It tethers us to truth, mentally and emotionally, protecting our minds, and reorienting our perspectives.
Store up God’s Word in your heart. Memorize it; meditate on it; allow the Spirit of God to personalize it to your life. And be continually renewed as God uses it to transform you into the likeness of Christ.
If you’re not already in the habit of memorizing Scripture, select one verse to memorize and meditate on this week. Watch how God brings it to bear on your current circumstances.
I’m taking her counsel to heart and will be meditating on Psalm 116:7 today — “Return , O my soul to your rest; for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.”
