Have you seen the Pixar movie Inside Out? It shows the inside workings of a little girl's memory bank. From time to time an annoying bubble gum commercial ditty randomly pops into her head.
Do you have a certain tune that pops into your head from time to time?
When I was a kid we used to sing this verse to a fun, little tune. From time to time it pops into my head and sticks around for a while.
He that dwells in the secret place of the most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge
and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
Psalm 91:1-2 KJV 2000
Singing the scripture is such a great way to get God’s Word in your heart. Once you’ve learned a verse to song, it stays in a place in your brain for years. At any moment the Word can spring forth into your memory.
This basic memory function is what advertisers who write jingles depend on. If they can plant messages in our minds, we can definitely do it to ourselves too.
It’s so great to have scripture playing in the soundtrack of your day instead of negativity. As you meditate on God’s Word, the enemy’s lies and accusations get blocked out.
Putting scripture to song is a fun way to fight back. It really is a powerful weapon for you. Think of it as part of putting on the full armor of God.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
Intentionally get God’s Word into your heart and mind, then meditate on it as you go about your daily routine!
