“The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail .” -Isaiah 58:11 (NIV)
The things we hear over and over again are what automatically come to us when we need to know that information. For instance, my third grade teacher put such an emphasis on the multiplication tables that someone can call out numbers such as “eight times nine” and my immediate response is “72.” I received that knowledge 57 years ago, yet it is still deeply embedded in my memory. It is there because I practiced those multiplication tables so much and because I have continued using that knowledge each day. Therefore those math formulas have become an automatic response in my life when I need them.
