Memorizing the Word of God and and keeping God's Word in our hearts will protect us from sinning against God.
Getting the Word of God into our hearts as a protection against sinning against God, we must meditate (turn it over and over in our minds so that it will come to mind when we need it).
"But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. 3 He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers."
Christians, take time to memorize scriptures that stand out to you (one or a few at a time). Then prayerfully think about these scriptures so that you understand what God is saying to you and you can apply them to your life.
Having the Word in your heart will protect you from temptations designed to destroy you. You will experience The Holy Spirit bringing the Word to your mind in the right situation. Nothing like it.
