A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–1 Thessalonians 5:18

This Week’s Memory Verse:
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV

This Week’s Message:
This weeks verse tells us believers to “give thanks in everything for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
That means whatever circumstances we are in we should be thankful because in the end we know God will work all things together for our good. (See Romans 8:28)
So in various trials we should stay in an attitude of thankfulness that we have God to lean on, we should trust that He is aware of our circumstances, we should believe that He is working things out on our behalf.
Staying in this attitude will keep us from discouragement, grumbling, anger and worry, which are all forms of unbelief and therefore sinful on our part.

This week then as we memorize our verse, let’s give thanks daily and also put into practice the verses before and after it.
Each day this week let’s:

  • Rejoice evermore. 1Th 5:16–for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1 Thessalonians 5:18
  • Pray without ceasing.1Th 5:17–for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1 Thessalonians 5:18
  • Quench not the Spirit.1Th 5:19–for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1 Thessalonians 5:18
  • Despise not prophesyings. 1Th 5:20–for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1 Thessalonians 5:18
  • Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.1Th 5:21–for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1 Thessalonians 5:18
  • Abstain from all appearance of evil.1Th 5:22–for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1 Thessalonians 5:18

Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 31:6

ThisDueteronomy 31:6 Week’s Scripture:
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.  Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV


This Week’s Message:

This week’s verse is so uplifting and encouraging!
Moses is speaking to Israel just before they are to cross the Jordan River.
At this time they are feeling fearful because they are about to cross a river, go into a new land where they might face hardships, challenges and enemies, plus their wonderful leader, Moses, who has been leading them for many years, will not be going with them for God has chosen Joshua to be their leader.
They are facing a lot of changes and unknown circumstances.

Moses was telling the people:

  • Strengthen yourselves in mind, body and spirit so that you will prevail against all odds
  • Be brave and bold
  • Do not dread, tremble or resist
  • Do not stand in awe of the enemy

Why was Moses telling them this? He was reminding them of one important thing that they needed to never forget!
That the LORD=Jehovah = the existing One, the Supreme God, the One True God, Elohiym, is your God.
This LORD God goes with you, He walks with you. As you depart He comes alongside you. He proceeds with you.
As you move, He moves. He will not go away from you. He will not abandon you. He will not leave you alone.
So don’t be faint or feeble. Don’t become dishearted or worry or doubt.
He will hold you up. He will not fail and therefore, you will not fail.
As long as you walk with Him you will be safe and you will succeed!

What a great message for us today! Believers, this same LORD God is also our God. He has not changed. As He did for Israel He will do for us.
Memorize this verse and claim it for yourself! Do not fear nor be afraid as He leads and you walk with Him daily.
