Today is a Rest Day. There is no new Bible reading to do. Today, the goal is simple: rest in the presence of God. Maybe you need to use today to get caught up on the reading plan if you’re behind, maybe you want to journal what you’re learning so you don’t forget what God is teaching you, or maybe you want to spend time in concentrated prayer–do that. Above all, just spend time in God’s presence. Each Rest Day, we will also introduce a memory verse for the week. Meditate on this week’s verse and begin to memorize it.
“The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.”
Exodus 33:14-15 NIV
One thing that helps in Scripture memorization is hearing the scripture repeated over and over again. That’s why songs are so easy for us to memorize; we hear them repeatedly and then they just start to stick in our brain. Apply that same principle to Scripture memory. Use an audio Bible, or even record yourself saying the verse, and then listen to it repeatedly throughout the day–while you’re driving, making dinner, on your lunch break. You’ll have it memorized in no time!
