A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization: Philemon 1:4

This Week’s Memory Verse: Philemon 1:4 KJV
I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,

This Week’s Message:
This Week’s Memory Verse reminds us to give thanks for and continually pray for our brothers and sisters in the Lord.
As we read the whole chapter of Philemon we can see that Paul is grateful for and praying for:

  • his fellow labourers in the Lord ( 1:1 and 1:24)
  • his fellow soldier in the Lord (1:2)
  • his fellow labourers home church (1:3)
  • his fellow servants, brothers, partners (1:16-17)
  • his fellow prisoners (1:23)

As we memorize this week’s verse, let’s also remember to pray for our fellow believers in the Lord. Let’s pray for those brothers and sisters in our church community,
and our fellow believers who are friends or co-workers. Let’s remember to pray for those who are in prison for their work for the Lord or those who are being persecuted for their faith.

This week just take time to remember, give thanks and pray for all those you know who are fellow believers.

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.

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–Jeremiah 10:10

This Week’s Memory Verse: Jeremiah 10:10 NKJV
But the LORD is the true God;
He is the living God and the everlasting King,
At His wrath the earth will tremble,
And the nations will not be able to endure His indignation.

This Week’s Message:
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.

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 upon you as you memorize and share His word this week.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Ezra 8:22

This Week’s Memory Verse: Ezra 8:22 NKJV
“The hand of our God is upon all those for good who seek Him, but His power and His wrath are against all those who forsake Him.”

This Week’s Message:
Believers, we who seek Him, God’s hand is upon us for good. This is a comforting thought and one which we should remind ourselves of often.
God loves us. He continually is bringing us good. We are never alone for His hand is always upon us.
Therefore, we should rejoice and give thanks in that daily as we walk through this world.
Also, we should pray daily for those who don’t know Him, or seek Him. We should pray for those who reject and forsake Him, for their choice will not end up good for them.
God does not want anyone to perish, but He is a just God and cannot bless those who do not seek Him.

Therefore, memorize this verse as a reminder to:

  • give thanks that God’s hand is upon you,
  • give thanks for the good He brings into your life,
  • continue to seek God daily
  • pray for those who don’t know Him or seek Him.

If you would like you can Print the verse out in a card format to post to your refrigerator, bathroom mirror, 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.

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.
