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.

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

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.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–3 John 1:11

This Week’s Memory Verse: 3 John 1:11 NKJV
He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is pretty straightforward–it is speaking of the difference between good and evil in those who know God and those who don’t know Him.
The word “seen” is “horaō” in Greek which is a verb which means: to know or to become acquainted with by experience

The word “good” is “agathos” in Greek which means:
of good nature–useful–pleasant, agreeable, joyful, happy–excellent–upright, honourable   All these things are of God.

The word “evil” is “kakos” in Greek which means:
of a bad nature–not such as it ought to be–of a mode of thinking, feeling, acting base, wrong, wicked, troublesome, injurious, pernicious, destructive, baneful.
All these things are done by those who do not know God or who have not become acquainted with Him by experience

Believers, we should be doing good things naturally because we have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Anytime evil thoughts come into our minds or we are tempted to do evil actions we can immediately know these things are not of God and we should cast them out of our lives. Satan might try to influence us to do these wrong things, but we have the power of the Holy Spirit within us to refuse and resist him.,
James 4:7 says: Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

So, this week let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves to do good daily and also to pray for those who don’t—for as this verse tells us, they need to know God
and we believers are the ones who can share Him with them.

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–1 John 5:11

This Week’s Memory Verse:
And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1 John 5:11 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
“And this is the testimony” John says “that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son”

John, one of the disciples who walked and talked with Jesus here on earth, is sharing his testimony. He is saying that in Jesus we have eternal life.

We all have a choice to believe this as truth and receive Jesus as our Savior, or we can reject this and choose to believe there is some other way to eternal life.
All of us have free will. All of us need to make the choice before we die.
The scriptures are very clear that Jesus is the only Way to eternal life.
It is God’s hope that all would believe this truth and receive eternal life in His Son, however some choose not to.

This week let’s memorize this verse and rejoice that we who believe have received eternal life in Jesus.
Let’s also share this verse with others so they may have the chance to hear the truth and to choose eternal life.
Let’s also pray for those who hear and choose not to believe, that they may make the right choice before it’s too late.

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

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.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Haggai 1;5 and 1:7

This Week’s Memory Verses: Haggai 1:5 and 1:7 NKJV
Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways!
Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways!

This Week’s Message:
This week we have two verses to memorize, but they are very short, very much the same, and very important, because when the LORD says something more than once, it is wise to take notice!

In these verses we hear the LORD of hosts speaking to the Jews who had returned to their land after their exile in Babylon. Right after they returned they had begun work to rebuild the Temple that had been destroyed, however, after sixteen years they had not completed the work because they had been letting their personal affairs interfere with doing God’s work.
They had been putting off working, saying it wasn’t the right time, that they would do it later, etc. But now, the time came that the LORD began to sternly remind them thru the prophet Haggai that they needed to start putting God’s work first and finish what they had started.

These verses are a good reminder to us believers, in that Jesus left us with a job to do also. In Mark 16:15 Jesus said: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
This has often been called “The Great Commission” to believers. Perhaps it is time for us to “Consider our ways”. Have we been sharing the gospel as we should or have we been putting it off for a “better time”?  Have we said ” I will speak to so and so about Christ, but now is just not the right time to do so.” ? If so, we need to stop and  “Consider our ways” and begin doing the LORD’s work as we have been told.

Memorize this verse as a reminder to yourself daily to share the gospel with all you meet. Let’s busy ourselves with building the LORD’s Kingdom daily, for this is the most important work we can do!

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.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Ezekiel 12:25

This Week’s Memory Verse: Ezekiel 12:25 NKJV
“For I am the LORD. I speak, and the word which I speak will come to pass;….”

This Week’s Message:
This week’s memory verse comes from the book of Ezekiel, the book of which tells of God’s anger and judgment upon Israel, Jerusalem and the Nations.
Ezekiel, is called to be God’s prophet, to speak God’s words to a rebellious people. Many times throughout this book we read ” Thus says the Lord God”.

God’s word is powerful, When God speaks His words create. When God speaks His word always comes to pass. We can trust in God’s word, it is always true.
This week’s verse was spoken to Ezekiel to give to the people of Israel, but it is a verse that we, God’s people, can claim for ourselves this day, for any word God speaks
is true and relevant.

Therefore, memorize this verse, ponder it and consider if God has spoken a word to you recently or in the past. If what He spoke has not yet come to pass in your life,
trust that it will, for this verse tells us that what God speaks “will come to pass”. Also, know that what God has spoken throughout His word the Bible will all come to pass
in His perfect timing.
