A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization: Zechariah 4:6

This Week’s Memory Verse: Zechariah 4:6 KJV
Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

This Week’s Message:
Zerubbabel was the head of the tribe of Judah during the time the Israelites returned to their land after their exile in Babylon.
The LORD spoke through the prophet Zechariah that He wanted the temple rebuilt and He chose Zerubbabel to be the one to accomplish this task.
However, the LORD made it clear that the task would be completed not by man’s might, nor by any ruler’s power, but by the LORD’s Spirit.
The LORD was going to work supernaturally through men to accomplish this rebuilding of the temple. It wouldn’t be done by the strength of men, nor the power of an earthly king, but by the LORD.
Yes, men would have to co-operate and do the daily tasks but the LORD’s Spirit would lead and guide through the whole process.

We can learn so much from this verse. As we believer’s live and walk in the Spirit daily, we need to remember that if the LORD wants us to accomplish something for Him, it will happen, not because
of our might or power, but because of His. We believer’s have His Spirit dwelling within us. Each day we have the ability to do great things for the LORD in His might and power.
So, let’s memorize this verse and daily ask the LORD what it is that He wants us to do for Him, and then go forth to accomplish it by His Spirit.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–2 Timothy 1:7

This Week’s Memory Verse:
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is one of my favorites. I have often recited it to myself or others when fear rose up, and indeed it was a reminder that fear is not of God, so we should not allow it to come upon us.
God has given us power, love, and a sound mind ( which is self-control or discipline). We receive those from His Holy Spirit that lives within us. The spirit of fear will try to come upon us in certain situations we may face, but we should not entertain it.
We should use the self-control He has given us to cast fear out of our minds and we should face it and overcome it with the power God has given us.

So, this week let’s memorize this verse so that we have it stored in our minds and hearts to use whenever fear rises up.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization- Matthew 28:19

This Week’s Memory Verse: Matthew 28:19 KJV
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

This Week’s Message:
Believers, before Jesus left this earth He instructed His followers to go, teach, and baptize–all nations. He said to teach the nations to observe all the things He had commanded.
I guess if that is our purpose in life, then we should know what He had commanded, therefore we need to be reading and studying the gospels to learn what Jesus taught His followers and then we need to ask Him out how we can share that with others today.

This is not something Jesus said lightly, this is a command to us, His followers, to do. This week as we memorize this verse let’s really think upon it and make plans to act upon it also.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Leviticus 26:12

This Week’s Memory Verse: Leviticus 26:12 KJV
And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.

This Week’s Message:
God was reminding the Israelites of the Blessings of Obedience. He was telling them to remember it was Him who brought them out of Egypt and reminding them of His Commandments and the importance of always obeying Him and honoring Him. He told them if they did He would walk among them and be their God, and they would be His people. He would dwell with them in the Tabernacle and would go where
ever they journeyed. He would bless them and provide for them. They would have a close personal relationship with each other. The choice was theirs, Him or the World, unfortunately their fleshly desires always seemed to lead them astray and they were never able to obey. That is why Christ had to come to fulfill the Law and bring those who believe in Him into a right relationship with God.

To me, this verse seems to be the promise of of what we believers have in Christ, for His Holy Spirit lives within us and is with us always and in Christ we can have a close personal relationship with God and receive His many blessings, peace, protection, and provision.

So, let’s memorize this beautiful, encouraging verse this week. Let’s give thanks that we are God’s people and that His Spirit dwells within us because of Christ.
Then, let’s walk and talk with God daily as His people.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Jude 1:20-21

This Week’s Memory Verse:  Jude 1:20-21 NKJV
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith,
praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God,
looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

This Week’s Message:
In this Week’s Memory Verse Jude is speaking to believers, reminding them to remain in the true faith of which they had first been taught because, he is saying, False Teachers have crept in among them, people who are not true believers, but who say they are, and who are causing many to go astray from the truth.

In this week’s verse Jude is telling true believers to build themselves up
(strengthen their belief in order to stand strong) in the most holy faith (the true faith of which they had first been taught).

He is telling them to:

  • pray in the Holy Spirit
    (praying in the Spirit strengthens and uplifts believers–it is also an effective tool in warfare)
  • keep themselves in the love of God
    ( stay true to the One True God, be obedient to Him, read His word, follow His teaching, so as not be led astray by false teaching)
  • look for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life
    (look for the return of Christ who is our Savior and soon coming King in whom we have the hope of eternal life)
    (Please take note—Jude is speaking of the Trinity here–Holy Spirit, God, Jesus Christ.)

So, this week let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves, as true believers, of what we should be doing daily.

If you would like you can Print the 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.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Joshua 1:9

This Week’s Verse: Joshua 1:9 NKJV
Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

This Week’s Message:
Three times the LORD told Joshua to be strong and of good courage. Moses had just died and Joshua was to take over leading the people of Israel.
The LORD knew Joshua would be feeling unsure, perhaps a bit frightened at this great task. The LORD wanted to ensure Joshua that he could do this because the LORD Himself was going to be with him night and day where ever he was, the LORD would be there helping him, telling him what to do.
And so, as Joshua believed, and trusted, he led the people as the LORD told him and he saw the power of the LORD come to pass.

The LORD God has told us believers the same thing. He has told us He would be with us always. He has told us His Holy Spirit is within us. He has told us not to fear,
but to trust Him in all things. As we believe Him and do as He says we see His hand at work in our lives just as Joshua did.

Memorize this verse as a reminder to be strong, be courageous, and to not be afraid or dismayed, for if you are a believer, the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

Scripture Memorization–Spiritual Blessings: Enlightenment

Ephesians 1:18 This Week’s Scripture:
the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,  Ephesians 1:18 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
Before salvation we were lost, living in darkness, our minds were blinded to the truth.  However, once we believed and received Christ, it was as if a light was turned on, because Christ is the Light of the World and His Holy Spirit within us fills us with light and reveals truth to us as never before!
Therefore, one
of the Spiritual Blessings we believers receive in Christ is Enlightenment, which means, spiritually we are no longer in the dark.
Our understanding of scripture is increased, our minds are open to the knowledge of God’s will, and we are able to know the truth.

Let’s Memorize this verse and use this Blessing daily so that we can learn and grow and bring glory to God, every day in every way!
