A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Obadiah 1:15

This Week’s Memory Verse: Obadiah 1:15 KJV
For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.

This Week’s Message:
This week our memorization verse is not about us believers, it is about the ungodly people, those who choose to reject the LORD and do evil.
Obadiah was speaking about the coming judgment upon the ungodly people of Edom who were against Israel.
The book of Obadiah is the smallest book in the Old Testament–it is only one chapter, read it to better understand the meaning of this verse.

Then, as you memorize this verse, pray for the lost people and nations of the world who need salvation. Pray that they will repent before it’s too late.

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 upon you this week as you read, pray and memorize.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization: Numbers 23:19

This Week’s Memory Verse: Numbers 23:19 KJV
God is not a man, that he should lie;….

This Week’s Message:
This Week’s verse is short, but powerful. God is telling us that He does not lie. And, we as believers all believe that in our hearts, and we know that in our minds, but….
there are times when we let doubt creep in, or fear, or insecurity. We wonder about this or that regarding a situation instead of just believing and trusting.
So this verse is one we should memorize and keep in our minds and hearts for those times of fear and doubt. Then, we can remind ourselves “God is not a man, that he should lie.”

Memorize this verse–Speak it out loud to yourself whenever you doubt or fear or are tempted. Know that God’s word is always true and that He will always keep His promises.
For, as the whole verse says: “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?”

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 as you memorize His word and live in His love and care.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–1Kings 18:39

This Week’s Memory Verse:
The LORD He is the God, the LORD He is the God. 1Kings 18:39 KJV

This Week’s Message:
I chose this verse for us to memorize this week as a praise and worship verse, it is kind of a cheer leading chant actually. It is saying that there maybe many gods but the LORD He is THE GOD!  Allelujah!  Amen!
This verse is taken from the account in 1Kings where Elijah comes up against the prophets of Baal. When Elijah calls down the fire from heaven he proves that the LORD is the God, as he was victorious over the prophets of Baal. And when that happened–“All the people saw it, they fell on their faces and they said “the LORD He is the God, the LORD He is the God”

There is no one or nothing that is more powerful than the LORD for He truly is the One True God.  Praise Him this week as you cheer for Him daily repeating this week’s verse to yourself or anyone you might choose to share it with.

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.

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.

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–2 John 1:9

This Week’s Memory Verse: 2 John 1:9 NKJV
Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.

This Week’s Message:
To “transgress” means to neglect, turn aside from or abandon trust in. “Doctrine” means teachings and “Abide” means to dwell in or walk with.
This verse is telling us then that those who neglect to walk in the teachings of Christ do not have God, but those who do have both the Father and the Son.
The New Living Bible translates the verse this way:
Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God.
But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son.

Believers, this is a very straightforward verse. It shows us once again that there is only one way to God and that is through Jesus Christ.
It is a good reminder to us to examine ourselves daily in order to make sure we are abiding in Christ’s doctrine.
It is also a very sad verse in that there might be many we know who are not, either because they refuse to believe or because they have have turned away.

Let’s memorize this verse and use it this week as we are led to, either as a reminder to ourselves or to share with others.

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 see it.

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

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–John 14:6

This Week’s Memory Verse: John 14:6 NKJV
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is a very important verse to memorize. It is a wonderful verse to share with others who may not be believers..  It is also a good reminder to us believers for it shows us all we have been given in Jesus.

The book of John has so many wonderful verses that it was difficult to pick just one for this week’s memory verse, but I believe this verse is a very powerful one
for us to keep in our memory and I am sure it will strengthen us as well as be a wonderful evangelistic tool to share with the lost.

Blessings to you as you memorize and share His word this week.

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.
