The Power of Three. The sequence in which we use the words “how” and “why” significantly shape our journey with Jesus.

If we are going to finish a race, a project, a speech or whatever, the way we begin greatly affects our completion. The same is true in our walk with God. Learning how to memorize scripture, or to have a quiet time with God, or how to study the Bible are for sure blue ribbons. They get us going, but if we don’t know the “why” we are doing these things, we will probably drop them when life sneaks up on us and hits us with real hard stuff.

If we know why we should memorize scripture, it makes complete sense to do it. David said it like this in Psalm 119:9 and 11 in The Word on the Street “The chances of a young guy staying pure? The odds on a girl not getting hurt?…I’ve memorized your words in my heart as my guarantee not to make you frown.”

If we don’t know “why” we should “hide God’s Word in our heart” (memorize it), we’re kidding ourselves about our intention to please God with our life or win the battles our enemy wages against us every day. The same can be said of having a quiet time or reading or studying the Bible. The “why” makes all the difference in what marks our life when we are 40, 50 or 75 years old.

WHAT THIS MEANS: Have you started the race on the right foot? If not, it’s never too late to begin. We must understand the power in knowing “why” we are doing something before we focus on the “how” to do it.
