I hope all of y’all have had a wonderful beginning to your week! 🙂 With school already starting and activities picking up, I’m sure life has sped up for you as it has for me.
Henceforth then, with this thought in mind, I decided to share a few of my favorite Bible verses with you! Continuing to spend time with the Lord even when life gets immensely busy is incredibly important. We do not allow ourselves to starve physically, then why would we ever intentionally starve ourselves spiritually?
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go,” ~ Joshua 1:9
I love this Scripture because it can apply to literally every area of your life either now or in the future. Fear and discouragement are two feelings that we experience whether we are five or fifty. This is a great verse to recall whenever fear has snatched onto your mind.
“Even perfection has its limits, but your commands have no limit,” ~ Psalm 119:96
This short verse is a good one to use if you struggle with perfectionism like myself. It reminds me that human attempts at perfection are limited and few, but God’s Word and grace have no limit.
“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit,” ~ Psalm 34:18
Unlike the other verses, this one was told to me specifically by the Holy Spirit during a moment where I was struggling with anger towards Him. I find it amazing how this is the Scripture He chose to speak to me. Out of all of the ones in the Bible, this one talks about the person or people being discouraged and shattered in spirit while their hearts are broken. It does not say anything about anger or judgment. How marvelous it is that God can see into the deeper issue when we ourselves do not even know it is there.
I hope one of these three Scriptures has ignited an interest and fervor for the Bible within your heart! Have a wonderful week and remember to spend time with our Heavenly Father!
