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

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Ezra 8:22

This Week’s Memory Verse: Ezra 8:22 NKJV
“The hand of our God is upon all those for good who seek Him, but His power and His wrath are against all those who forsake Him.”

This Week’s Message:
Believers, we who seek Him, God’s hand is upon us for good. This is a comforting thought and one which we should remind ourselves of often.
God loves us. He continually is bringing us good. We are never alone for His hand is always upon us.
Therefore, we should rejoice and give thanks in that daily as we walk through this world.
Also, we should pray daily for those who don’t know Him, or seek Him. We should pray for those who reject and forsake Him, for their choice will not end up good for them.
God does not want anyone to perish, but He is a just God and cannot bless those who do not seek Him.

Therefore, memorize this verse as a reminder to:

  • give thanks that God’s hand is upon you,
  • give thanks for the good He brings into your life,
  • continue to seek God daily
  • pray for those who don’t know Him or seek Him.

Scripture Memorization–Spiritual Blessings: Deliverance

Ephesians 2:5
This Week’s Scripture:

even when we were dead in trespasses, [God] made us alive together with Christ
(by grace you have been saved), Ephesians 2:5

This Week’s Message:
When something is dead, it cannot do anything, it has no life unless God gives it life.
When something is delivered it is taken from one place to another place. It does not take itself, someone or something takes it.
This verse makes it very clear then, that our salvation was of God, not of ourselves.

When we were spiritually dead, we were destitute of a life that recognized God. We weren’t devoted to Him because we were given up to our sins.
We were not active in doing right according to God’s will, word and way. We were blinded to the truth. We needed to be delivered from this way of life.
We needed to be taken out of the kingdom of darkness and delivered into the kingdom of light. In His grace God did this for us thru Christ.

This week as you memorize this verse, think upon how your life was before Christ and think about how it is now in Christ.
Then, spend some time daily thanking God and Christ Jesus for your deliverance!

May you have a wonderful week as you walk in and memorize the Spiritual Blessings of Christ daily!
