Top Five Tuesday — Top Five Verses For “His Word The Last Word”

In the summer of 2012, I learned an about an approach to the devotional life taken by The Navigators, a campus ministry known for their Scripture memorization techniques.

It’s called His Word The Last Word and involves a very simple concept: in the moments before you fall asleep, speak out a verse of Scripture (or think that verse as loud as you can!).  Those words will then seep into your subconscious, give greater peace to your rest, and focus your mind for the next day. 

I’ve found the practice remarkably helpful.

So here the top five verses that I use as His Word The Last Word helps me sleep. And wake.

5.  Romans 1:16:

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 

4.  John 10:10

I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.

3.  Psalm 46:10

Be still and know that I am God.

2.  Colossians 1:17

He is before all things and in him all things hold together.

1.  Colossians 3:11

Here there is not Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all and is in all.
