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

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–S

Gold Letter SThis Week’s Memory Verse:
“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. ” –Jesus [Matthew 6:33 NKJV]

This Week’s Message:
In the verses previous to this verse Jesus was talking about worrying. He was telling the people not to worry about material things, like clothes and food.
He was telling them to look at the nature around them and see how God provided for the birds and the flowers. He was saying we should first seek God’s way and will for our lives
and if we do, then God will take care of us, just as He does with the birds and flowers, yet even more so because we are even more precious to Him.

When I think of God’s kingdom and righteousness, I immediately think of Christ, for Jesus is the righteousness of God and He is the Messiah who is coming back to rule and reign someday soon.

So believers, let’s memorize this verse to remind ourselves daily to “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” and then we shall not need to worry about anything.

Blessings to you daily.

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–Q

Gold Letter QThis Week’s Memory Verse:
Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth. Psalm 119:88 KJV

This Week’s Message:
‘Quicken me” I have always loved the word “quicken”. It isn’t used today, I wish it was for, to me, it has a certain urgency to it, kind of a desparate plea.
Quicken means: revive, restore, give life. In this verse, David is asking the LORD God to revive his strength, restore his faith, give him grace to obey and proceed in God’s word.
David so wanted to live according to God’s way and will that he often asked God to show him loving-kindness to help him keep on the right path. David knew without the daily help of God, he couldn’t make it on his own.

Jesus said in John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”

And so, we should pray daily, as David did, that God will quicken us, so that we can abide in Jesus and bear much fruit.

Let’s memorize this verse and pray it daily.
