Fear Not Scripture: Exodus 20:20

Exodus 20:20 Fear NotThis Week’s Scripture:
And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. Exodus 20:20 KJV

This Week’s Message:
In verses previous to this verse we see that God (Elohiym–the One True God–Jehovah) is speaking out His Ten Commandments to His people.
After He speaks, the people see and hear signs of His presence.
Exodus 20:18-19 says: And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar
And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.

The people were afraid. They had fear–but not the kind of fear that they should have had. They had earthly, fleshly fear.  They needed to have a godly fear. A fear of God which was reverent fear.
A healthy respect for God, reverencing Him for who He was. Showing honor to Him for His great power and authority.

Moses corrected them. He told them to “Fear Not” which meant do not be afraid in your flesh that God is come to harm you, but realize that He is speaking these things to you for your own good.
He wants to test you in these things so you will not sin, for He loves you and wants the best for you.

Let’s learn from this verse today. Let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves that we should have a healthy fear of God, which is a reverence for Him, respect for Him, awe for Him.
We should regard His authority and honor who He is. We should remind ourselves that He loves us and wants the best for us, therefore whatever He commands us to do is for our good.

Let’s realize how to “Fear Not” and do it daily.

Fear Not Scripture–Genesis 46:3

Genesis 46:3This Week’s Memory Verse:
And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation: Genesis 46:3 KJV

This Week’s Message:
I am El (Mighty God) the God (Elohiym–the One True God, Jehovah) fear not.

In this verse God is telling Jacob three things:

  1. that he should not fear because He, God, is the same God that Jacob’s father, Isaac knew, loved, trusted and followed. God was in a sense telling Jacob to recall how He, God, had always been there for Jacob and his father Isaac in the past and that he would always be there now for Jacob.
  2. God was telling Jacob where to go in the present time–He was giving Jacob direction for his life.
  3. God was telling Jacob what He was going to do for him in the future. God was promising Jacob the same thing He had promised his father, Isaac.

God was showing Jacob He was there for him in the present just as He had been in the past and would be in the future. Jacob should not fear, but just trust God.

I feel this verse has a lot to teach us today. I feel God could also be speaking this to us believers as well. He is saying “Trust Me” I am Mighty God, the One True God, Jehovah, have no fear, I will direct your paths, I will show you where to go. I have plans for you for the future and they are good plans.

Let’s memorize this verse and repeat it to ourselves daily as a reminder that God is with us, just as He was with Jacob.

Blessings to you daily,

Fear Not Scripture–Genesis 26:24

Genesis 26:24This Week’s Scripture:
And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham’s sake. Genesis 26:24 KJV

This Week’s Message:
In this verse we see the LORD having a conversation with Isaac, the son of Abraham.

The LORD (Jehovah=One True God)–I AM–The God of Abraham–Says:
“Fear Not”

Why?–Because of His Covenant Promise He says: “I am with thee, I will bless thee, I will multiply thy seed”
The LORD is telling Isaac that He is his provider and protector in the present and in the future.
He is guaranteeing Isaac that He remembers His Covenant that He made with Abraham and that He intends to keep His promise.

Well, believers, in Christ we can claim this verse for ourselves because Galatians 3:29 says:

“And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Therefore, let’s memorize this verse and claim it’s goodness.
For in Christ, the LORD is our God, He is with us, He will bless us, and He will multiply our seed as well.

Give Him thanks and praise, for who He is! And give thanks and praise for who we are in Christ!

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–Z

Gold Letter ZThis Week’s Memory Verse:
Do not let your heart envy sinners, But be zealous for the fear of the LORD all the day;
Proverbs 23:17 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
“Zealous” is not a word we hear very much nowadays, it means: ardently devoted, eager for something, actively or intensely diligent, enthusiastic or passionate about something.
and “fear of the LORD” means: a reverential awe for the One True God=Jehovah. It means to have respect for Him, not to be afraid of Him, but to reverence Him for who He is.

So, to be zealous for the fear of the LORD all the day would mean that we believers, should be ardently devoted to the LORD.
We should be in reverential awe over Him daily.

We should be actively pursuing His word, His will, His way. Our passion should be in and on the LORD, not on anything or anyone else.

Let’s memorize this verse as a daily reminder to ourselves.

This is the last memory verse in this “Nuggets of Truth” series.
Next week we will begin a new weekly memorization series–which will be announced soon.

Thank you and Blessings—L.J.  SGLY Ministry

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–W

Gold Letter WThis Week’s Memory Verse:
Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!
Psalm 27:14 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
Wait doesn’t just mean to languish or sit dejectedly, it means to expect, place all your hope in, look for the LORD–the One True God-Jehovah! It means to prevail, stand strong, press on.
It means to gather together all your faith and encourage yourself in His word. The root word for wait is actually to bind together or twist, quite like the stands of a rope are put together.
Therefore, we could look at our waiting time as one where we bind all our beliefs in God and His word together into a strong rope which we then hang onto and look for Him to come to us.
When we do that, He will come, He will strengthen us, He will build us up even more. He will confirm His word to be true to our hearts, our inner man, He will make us even stronger and bring us His assurance. Let’s wait on Him in this way and see what He does for us!

Let’s Memorize this verse and then put it into Action!

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–T

Gold Letter TThis Week’s Memory Verse:
Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Psalm 37:3 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
This verse is one of my life verses. I often recite it to myself.

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.
