My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: (Prov. 3:1 KJV)
The first step to keeping the Word in your heart is keeping it in your mind. When the Word is on your mind all day, it can be compared to a cloud that continuously pours the rain of God’s life into your heart and body! Having a daily bible verse greatly facilitates this process.
