Good morning all-
I only have a few minutes today. I just wanted to share a little about my commitment to memorize Scripture this year through the Siestas of Living Proof Ministries blog.lproof.org. Beth Moore has been one of my very favorite Bible teachers, even though I often couldn't spend the time in her studies. This year, I felt God prompting me to memorize Scripture. It's one of those things I've said I would love to do but God wants us to do it. So, I committed and here we are.
I was having trouble with Scripture number six. Not because it was complicated but because I just didn't have time this last two weeks. That's more of an excuse really, so I asked the Lord yesterday to help me memorize it before today, so that I could pick another one. I am a procrastinator at heart. And glory to God, I woke up this morning and could say it. I remembered where it was; I just couldn't remember the verse. So, today I leave you with the words God wrote on my heart. Here it goes:
The Lord is the strength of His people, the fortress of salvation for His anointed one. Psalm 28:8 NIV
I need this verse. I'm going into battle today and I need to remember that only my salvation matters. It was His life for mine and no matter what, that's what I'm called to remember. I am so thankful to God for giving me this verse. It was down to the wire but I've got it and will have it for all eternity. His word lives and it will live in me if I commit the time to memorize and think upon it. I needed this verse more than you know. I challenge you to pick a verse and think about it. You don't have to commit to a number but commit to learn His word. It's more powerful than you know!
Until tomorrow, remember Your God is with You. He is powerful, mighty and worth our praise and supplication! We are His by His blood and we will be for all eternity! AMEN
