Colossians 3:16 (Amplified Bible)

"Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness,"

John 5:39-40 (Amplified Bible)

You search and investigate and pore over the Scriptures diligently, because you suppose and trust that you have eternal life through them. And these [very Scriptures] testify about Me!

And still you are not willing [but refuse] to come to Me, so that you might have life.

2 Timothy 3:15 (Amplified Bible)

And how from your childhood you have had a knowledge of and been acquainted with the sacred Writings, which are able to instruct you and give you the understanding for salvation which comes through faith in Christ Jesus [through the leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ Jesus in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness].

Hebrews 4:12-13 (Amplified Bible)

For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.

And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, naked and defenseless to the eyes of Him with Whom we have to do.

1 Peter 1:11-12 (Amplified Bible)

They sought [to find out] to whom or when this was to come which the Spirit of Christ working within them was indicating when He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that should follow [them].

It was then disclosed to them that the services they were rendering were not meant for themselves and their period of time, but for you. [It is these very] things which have now already been made known plainly to you by those who preached the good news (the Gospel) to you by the [same] Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Into these things [the very] angels long to look!

The Hebrew word used for the WORD here is "logos" meaning Divine Expression, the LORD JESUS CHRIST in the Scriptures not yet revealed, the written WORD as opposed to "rhema" which is the Revealed WORD. It only means that from now and then, we have to memorize a lot of scriptures (bible verses) from time to time to accomplish this. Memorize scriptures in categories, for example, if we need healing, memorize healing scriptures such as Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24, Exodus 15:26 and so on and so forth, and learn to quote them from memory from time to time, in such a way that we are embedding GOD'S WORDS in our hearts. Our memory are not as good as as the LORD's obviously for we are only His creatures but frequently calling out these verses in categories will help us retain them in our hearts and minds. That's why the WORD OF GOD need to occupy a huge portion of our hearts and minds richly, make it the center of our mind and heart.
