Friday Favorites: Bible Verse

July 15, 2011

This one might have been the most difficult for each of us … narrowing down to just one verse!  For Bible teachers this was a tough challenge.  But here you go … as of today, these are our favorite verses.

Teri Lynne:  Psalm 19:14.  Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. {ESV}

This is my daily prayer:  That what is seen and unseen in my life will be pleasing to God.

JuliePsalm 121. Part of our current ministry involves traveling around the world in missions. In so many places around the world, I’m reminded of this declaration from Psalm 121:1-8 :   “I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”  The rest of the Psalm gives specific examples of how our God “keeps” us. What comfort in any place!

Sandra:  Isaiah 43:4.   I don’t have a favorite verse really. I have verses that are my favorites for a certain season or a specific situation. Right now I’m reading through Isaiah and really meditating on 43:4, “Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you…” Even though God is speaking to Israel in this passage, He loves me with the same redeeming love. I need to hear that. Every day.

Kathy:  Galatians 2:20.  I have too many favorite verses to list, so instead I will share what I consider to be my “life verse.” Galatians 2:20 clearly teaches the biblical truth I try to live by. Because Jesus gave His life to save me, my life belongs to Him, not to me.

Stephanie: Philippians 3:7-14. If you’ve ever received any emails from me, you know I write “Phil 3:7-14” under my signature. Obviously, it’s more than one verse, but this segment of Scripture reminds me that there is nothing that can compare to knowing Christ; that there is nothing better than being apprehended to do that for which He has apprehended us and that there is nothing better than forgetting what is behind and pressing for the mark. These verses echo the cry of my heart.

Kristi: Revelation 21:3-4 – “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He will dwell [tabernacle] among us – complete physical, emotional, spiritual restoration. Knowing the end of the story puts everything in between in context!

    This week it is Isaiah 35:2, ” yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy.” This is the promise that is kept, and it is the prayer of my heart.

    Bright blessings and thanks for sharing,

    love these all!

    The Lord your God is in your midst,
    a mighty one who will save;
    he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
    he will exult over you with loud singing.
    -Zephaniah 3:17

    One of mine is Ephesians 3:20-21: Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask of imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

    This is a very comforting verse to me. It reminds me God can do more than I’ve ever dreamed of. It also reminds me to give him all the praise and glory.
