A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Mark 9:23-24

This Week’s Memory Verse: Mark 9:23-24 NKJV
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

(KJV for those who want to memorize in KJV)
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

This Week’s Message:
“If you can believe” Jesus said. “All things are possible to him who believes” Jesus said to this scribe who was not one of His followers, a man who had probably seen and heard Jesus, yet hadn’t really believed in Him. Scribes were teachers of the Law and often argued with Jesus and were against Him. I think the words Jesus spoke to the scribe were an invitation for him to believe in Jesus, not for him to believe that his son could be healed. I believe Jesus wanted the man to be healed of his unbelief first and then he would witness the healing of his son. And, the man did believe for he cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe”
To call Jesus, Lord, was to acknowledge that he did believe and receive Him as Lord and Savior, then he asks for forgiveness by saying “help my unbelief” which could be interpreted as forgive me for my lack of faith. A great thing happened that day for both the man and his son received healing and deliverance!

Memorize this verse and think upon it this week. Give thanks that you know Jesus as Lord. Give thanks that “all things are possible to him who believes” and if you have any unbelief, ask Jesus to remove it from you.

If you would like you can Print the memory verse out in a card format to post to your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, car visor, or other place that would keep it in your daily vision.  It will help to remind you to memorize it as you go through your day and also could be a great tool in sharing with others who might benefit from it also.

Blessings to you daily.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Judges 16:28

This Week’s Memory Verse: Judges 16:28 KJV
…O Lord GOD, remember me,
I pray thee, and strengthen me,…

This Week’s Message:
This Week’s Memory Verse is short but powerful. It is a plea for help.
The entire verse is a plea from a blinded man who is not asking for healing but for strength.
I chose to use just part of this verse for us to memorize because there are always times in our lives when we need the Lord’s strength or help, and this short prayer would be good to have in our memory to use in such times. Whether we need physical, mental or spiritual strength or help, I believe the Lord will hear us as we pray and will respond, just as He did for Samson in his time of need.

Samson’s prayed this prayer to the LORD just before his death. In chapter 16 in the book of Judges we read the story of Samson and Delilah.
If you have read the story you may remember that Samson had superhuman strength, and his enemies, the Phillistines wanted to know the secret of his strength.
So they made a plan with Delilah to entice Samson to reveal the reason for his strength, and Samson finally told her that it was his long hair.
When she shaved off his hair as he was sleeping, Samson lost his strength and when the Phillistines came to attack him he was too weak to fight and they blinded him
and threw him in prison. Then during a party they were having one night they brought him out to make sport of him and he prayed to the Lord for strength to avenge what they had done to him.

And Samson called unto the LORD, and said,
O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee,
and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God,
that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.

If you would like, you can read the rest of the story in Judges chapter 16 to find out
what happened to Samson after he prayed this prayer.)

If you would like you can Print the memory verse out in a card format to post to your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, car visor, or other place that would keep it in your daily vision. It will help to remind you to memorize it as you go through your day and also could be a great tool in sharing with others who might.

May the LORD bless you with His help and strength in your time of need this week as you memorize His precious word.

Fear Not Scripture: Genesis 21:17

Genesis 21:17This Week’s Scripture:
“What ails you, Hagar?  Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.” Genesis 21:17 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
The first part of this verse says: And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven,…

This verse shows me:
First of all—God, Elohiym, the Supreme God, the Creator, heard
(perceived, regarded, listened, understood) the voice of Hagar’s child.

Second–That God didn’t just hear, He responded. He sent His angel to communicate with Hagar, the lad’s mother.

Third–It shows God’s concern, his love and compassion. He wants to let Hagar know that He is aware of what is going on in her life and in the life of her child, for the verse says: “God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.”
God wanted to let Hagar know that He knew exactly where she and her son were and that she should not be afraid for God was going to help.

Believers, isn’t this a wonderful verse for us to memorize and reflect upon? Don’t you think that each one of us could substitute our name in place of Hagar’s name in this verse?
Don’t you agree that God would also tell us that He hears our cries just as He heard the lad’s cries? And that He knows just where we are and that we should not be afraid for He will help us? For,  we are His children.

Plus, God not only hears, He sees also.  In Genesis 16:13 Hagar called Him “El-Roi–The God Who Sees Me.”

In Malachi 3:6 God says: “For I am the LORD, I change not;”—since God doesn’t change, should we not expect that He would also hear and see us today?

“Fear Not”—Our God–Elohiym says.  Are we hearing Him?

Blessings to you as you memorize His word and walk and talk with Him 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.

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–P

Gold Letter PThis Week’s Memory Verse:
Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
Psalm 16:1 KJV

This Week’s Message:
This verse is a Michtam of David. Only two other Psalms are described as such. I believe it is a special poem that David wrote to encourage himself during a time of great need.
The definition of Michtam is not totally known but it is believed by some to mean “golden” or a very bold, special request at a time of great need or during a time of trouble.

“Preserve me” would mean protect me, keep me from harm, watch over me, guard me, and more.
David was speaking to “EL” Jehovah, the One True God. David was telling God that he trusted in Him, that he believed God was near and that God would indeed help him.

I think that this would be a special short verse for all of us believers to memorize as we could recall it to memory in our times of need.

Blessings to you as you memorize His word and walk in it with Him daily.
