is a lamp
unto my feet,
and a light
unto my path."
PLEASE listen .... REALLY listen ... to the words in the video below and then I'll be back!
I know I did things backwards today, but this is how the Lord had me write for today!
And really there is no normal here on this site anyway!
However the Lord leads is the way we go!!!
"Word of God Speak"
I've heard this song so many times that I've lost count, but on this one particular day as it came up on my Pandora music list, I took the time to REALLY listen to the words.
As the words to the song kept playing over and over in my mind throughout that day, it prompted me to make a list of some of my most favorite Scripture verses.
Verses that may be some of my "go to" verses when I need immediate help or verses that remind me of the unconditional love of my Saviour or verses that bring me great comfort or verses which the Lord is currently "working out in my life"!
As I share some of my "most favorite verses", I pray that you will allow "The Word of God" to speak to you, and as you do, that the Lord will bring to you comfort, blessings, encouragement, challenges.
Whatever your greatest need is at the moment.
"He must increase, but I must decrease"
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
"Pray without ceasing."
I Thessalonians 5:17
“My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.”
“What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.”
“and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:” Psalm 103:1-2
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
“Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.”
“She hath done what she could:”
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
“Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?”
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
II Corinthians 4:17-18
“greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
I John 4:4b
“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”
“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
I Peter 5:7
“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.”
“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
I hope that you were blessed by reading some of my most favorite Scripture verses.
May I challenge you?
If you don't already have your own list of your most favorite Scripture verses, why not take some time over the next few days and allow "The Word of God" to speak to you?
You don't have to start out with a long list. You can always add on to it over time. Just "go" as the Lord leads you. You won't regret it.
"Father, thank You so much that You have preserved Your Word over the years so that we can have it this day to read and mediate upon. Thank You that we have Your Word to receive wisdom and to find comfort. Thank You most of all that we have Your Word in which we find Jesus as our personal Saviour. Lord, I pray for all those who may be reading this post, that they will be blessed, encouraged, comforted and challenged by Your Word and that they will seek out Your Word on their own, because I know for a fact that they will not be disappointed!
In Jesus' Precious Name. Amen."
