A String Around My Finger
by PamFord Davis

How good is your memory?

I’ve never been good at remembering names; I’m terrible now. Memorization of dates in history, telephone numbers, birthdays? Not that great in those situations either. I’ve been giving extra attention to scripture memorization; it’s not easy but it is worth the effort.

“Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You (Psalm 119:11 NKJV).”

Tying a string around my finger ‘might’ help. Visual reminders make great tools to trigger our memories.

The LORD Jesus knows how important reminders are. He knows everything.

“These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:25-27 NKJV).”

The Holy Spirit brings Jesus' messages to our remembrance. We recall His sermons, prayers, promises and commands. The recall is a gift of the Holy Spirit; no strings attached!
