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–Song of Songs 2:4

This Week’s Memory Verse:
He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
Song of Songs 2:4 KJV

This Week’s Message:
I chose this weeks verse because it reminds me of a time in the future when I am going to be going into God’s Kingdom in heaven where Jesus will be waiting to take me to dine at His Marriage Supper of the Lamb as spoken of in Revelation 19:6-9.
I am not sure if this weeks verse is referring to that time or if it is just a reminder to me, but I think it could be and I know there will be such a time for me for God’s word says so. Therefore, it seems to be a great, encouraging verse to memorize.

The book Song of Songs does not specifically mention the name of God, Lord, or Christ, however there are several verses in it that I think make reference to one of those names and this verse is one of those.

I hope you will join me in memorizing this scripture this week and that you are as encouraged by it as I am.

Blessings to you this week as you rest in His love and look forward to a great time in the future in His Kingdom.

Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee,…

This Week’s Message:
In this weeks verse we hear a very grateful David praising God for who He is and for all He has done for David and for the people of Israel.
God has just spoken to David through the prophet Nathan of how He has blessed David and will continue to bless David’s seed after him and will establish Davids throne and kingdom forever.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–1 Samuel 15:29

This Week’s Memory Verse: 1 Samuel 15:29 KJV
And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent:
for he is not a man, that he should repent.

This Week’s Message:
In this week’s verse we are reminded that God does not lie, nor repent. God’s word is true. What He says or does will stand forever, because His judgements and actions are always just.
We can be sure that whatever He has spoken will come about. We can stand firm on His word.
This week’s verse reminds us of Numbers 23:19 which says the same:
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”

Memorize this weeks verse as an encouragement to yourself, that in this world that is so unstable and insecure, there is one thing that we can be absolutely sure of,
and stand firm on–it is God’s word.
Then, use this verse as you witness to others, share with them the blessing of knowing there is Someone and something they can absolutely believe and trust in,
Someone who will never lie, Someone whose word is always true and good, Someone who is always just, Someone who is so upright that there is no need for repentance.
That Someone is God Almighty (Gen.17:1), the Strength of Israel (1Sam.15:29), Just One (Acts 22:14), Righteous One (1John 2:1), Spirit of Truth (John 14:17), All in All (Col.3:11).
Praise Him today!

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Ruth 2:12

This Week’s Memory Verse: Ruth 2:12 KJV
The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is what Boaz, an Israelite, spoke to Ruth, who was a foreigner in his land.  It is a Blessing he bestowed upon Ruth because of her actions.
Ruth was a Moabite, not an Israelite.  She was of a people whose lifestyle was very different than the Israelites.
After Ruth lost her husband, who was one of Naomi’s sons, she chose to leave her country, her family, her friends and her people and go with Naomi, her Israelite mother-in-law, to help her and protect her on a journey to a new land, among people whom she did not know, people who worshiped and believed in a God she did not know.
Ruth showed genuine compassion and love for her mother-in-law and chose to trust in God because she saw and admired the faith of Naomi and the Israelite people. Boaz saw this quality in her and chose to bless her because of it.

Let’s memorize this verse this week as a reminder to challenge ourselves to live our life as Ruth did. Selfless, Humble, Compassionate, Loving and Trusting.
As we live out our faith daily, others will see and admire these qualities in us, God will be glorified, and we will be blessed.

Have a wonderful week walking in faith, love. and trust daily.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Romans 6:23

This Week’s Memory Verse: Romans 6:23 KJV
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

This Week’s Message:
Dear friends, I am assuming that all of you who are signed up for this Weekly Memorization are believers in Christ and have received God’s gift of eternal life.

At sometime in your life you had a choice, you could have chosen to serve the world, the flesh and the devil and receive the wages that go with that earthly lifestyle of sin.
Those wages which are spiritual death–a life lived separate from God here on earth and someday eternally.
But…you chose to serve God by believing and receiving His Son, Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and thereby received God’s gift of life abundantly here on earth and someday eternally.  Praise God for that choice! It is by far the best one!

This week’s verse shows us that all mankind basically has this life and death choice.
Believe and receive Christ and choose to serve God, receive the gift of eternal life.
Refuse to believe–reject Christ and you will receive the wages of sin, which is death–eternally. It is a sobering thought.

Memorize this verse and rejoice that you have made the best choice–the one which receives eternal life.
Then, share this verse with all you know who are un-believers and pray that they will make the right choice also.
