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.)

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.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Jonah 2:9

This Week’s Memory Verse: Jonah 2:9 NKJV
But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.”

This Week’s Message:
Jonah was in repentance for his disobedience to the LORD. He had deliberately disobeyed what the LORD had told him to do and then paid the consequence for his actions.
When he was in the belly of the fish that the LORD had sent to save him from drowning he repented of his disobedience and offered a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD for saving him and he also vowed to the LORD that he would obey in the future, for he acknowledged that his salvation was of the LORD.

We can all learn from the story of Jonah that obedience to the LORD is always necessary. And, by memorizing this week’s verse we can remind ourselves that if the LORD tells us to do something, we had best obey and do it, for otherwise we may not only jeopardize our life but we may also endanger others.
Therefore, this week let’s offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD
for His Salvation and let’s  be sure to be obedient to whatever He has told us to do.

Also, we must always be careful in making vows to the LORD, for He does not take what we vow lightly.
He loves us with an everlasting love and He will discipline us if need be to keep us from going astray. So, this verse gives us plenty of food for thought this week.

As we memorize this verse, it would do us all well to read or re-read the book of Jonah, for there are some valuable lessons we can all learn from this short book.
It will be good to share this Jonah story with others who have never read it or heard about it for as we see in the story, the LORD even used Jonah’s disobedience and consequences to cause unbelievers to come to know Him and to call upon Him.

Blessings to you this week as you memorize the word of the LORD, obey what He is telling you through it, and share it with others.

But the LORD is the true God;
He is the living God and the everlasting King,

This Week’s verse contains four of the many Names of God that are found in scripture. Memorizing this verse will help to remind us what a great and wonderful God we have.
The LORD is the true God, He is the living God and the everlasting King. Reciting this verse out loud or even to yourself quietly every day will surely be a blessing.
Speak it out as a declaration as you pray. Praise Him by using each of His names. All these will help you memorize but will also bring Him glory.

The last sentence of the verse show us that God is in control of all things. That someday those who choose to reject Him will feel His wrath. This sentence should cause us to pray for the lost that they will see the truth and believe before the time of His wrath comes. It should also cause us to witness whenever we can and share the gospel with all we meet.
