A Note Taker’s Journal

Moses wrote down all the words of the Lord. – Exodus 24:4

One of the most exciting things you can do in your Christian walk with the Lord is to keep a journal of all that He’s teaching you.

Moses wrote down all the words of the Lord. In other words, he didn’t want to miss or forget anything. If he were attending church with you, you could expect him to pull out a notebook and start jotting things down. Why? God directed Moses to do this because he was the one who would communicate what God said to the nation of Israel.

Today, godly men and women teach God’s truth, and we would be wise to pick up the habit of taking notes, as God taught Moses to do. The human mind has to hear or record a fact at least three times before it becomes part of our memory. Sometimes it can take hearing a fact up to fourteen times before it’s actually stored in our knowledge base.

Learn to take notes. Record your thoughts, and when you are alone with the Lord, ask Him to affirm what you have heard in and through His Word.

Godly messages never conflict with what God has written in the Bible—it is the infallible Word of God. This means that it is God’s Word to us, and nothing about it can be changed or taken away.

We live in a devious world because Satan is constantly enticing us away from God’s truth. As you worship the Lord, ask Him to make you aware of the enemy’s subtle and dangerous scheme. There is only one way to worship God, and that is with all of our hearts and minds.
