A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Luke 2:11

This Week’s Memory Verse: Luke 2:11 KJV
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

This Week’s Message:
I can remember hearing this verse and memorizing it as a child. I would hear it read in church every Christmas and I loved it. It, of course, didn’t have the full meaning to me then as it does now because as a child I didn’t really understand the amazing truth of what this verse was saying, but today it is a very special verse to me because it tells me that at some point in time God came to earth as a baby to deliver and redeem mankind from the curse of sin and death.
He came down from heaven to be our Savior. He was born of a woman and became man. He was called Christ which means Messiah,and Lord because He is Master of all.
What a wonderful event this was! We should celebrate everyday that Christ was born!

Memorize this verse and give thanks to God saying “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:14
for Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace and He, as God incarnate, came to
earth to bring good will toward all who will believe and receive Him as Savior and Lord.
For, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us” Matthew 1:23
.Hallelujah!

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Lamentations 3:24

This Week’s Memory Verse: Lamentations 3:24 NKJV
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!”

(Here is the KJV for those who want to memorize that verson:
“The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.”

This Week’s Message:
The word “portion” means inheritance, share, possession or award (from God).
I this chapter of Lamentations we read the laments of Jeremiah. He speaks of his many sorrows and trials and says he feels the LORD has forgotten him,
and his strength and hope are waning, but then.his soul remembers who it belongs to and what it has inherited and it rises up inside of Jeremiah to strenghten him
and remind him that he should hope, for the LORD Himself is Jeremiah’s inheritance, and with Him he will receive eternal life.

This verse is a good one for us to memorize and recall to our minds when we might become discouraged and feeling that the LORD has forgotten us.
We can use it to encourage ourselves that we have so much more than these earthly possessions, we have a heavenly inheritance, a share in the LORD’s kingdom,
our souls will dwell with the LORD for eternity, so let;s memorize this verse and encourage our souls with it daily.

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.

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.

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

So rend your heart, and not your garments;
Return to the LORD your God,
For He is gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger, and of great kindness;
And He relents from doing harm.

This Week’s Message:

It is also a good reminder of who our LORD is. He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness. Aren’t we glad to be reminded of that!

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–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.

    This week’s verse is probably a familiar one to most of you. It is an important one and a very good one to not only memorize but to also commit to doing daily.

    Moses first spoke this verse to the Israelites, but Jesus also spoke it to his followers.

  • In all we say, think, do, we believers should live for Him every moment of every day.

A to Z–Book by Book–Scripture Memorization–2 Chronicles

This Week’s Memory Verse: 2 Chronicles 20:20 ESV
Believe in the LORD your God, and you will be established;
believe his prophets, and you will succeed.”

This Week’s Message:
This week our Memory Verse is short but powerful.  It is the words of King Jehoshaphat when he spoke to the people of Judah and Jerusalem before a big battle.  The people were afraid because their enemies were much greater than they.  However, King Jehoshaphat prayed to the LORD asking Him what they should do and the Spirit of the LORD answered him through one of the prophets in attendance.  The prophet told them that the LORD said:
Not to be afraid or dismayed at the size of their enemy, for the battle was not theirs but it was the LORD’s.
The LORD told them where the enemy would be and when and what they should do.
They were not to be afraid, not to be dismayed and not to fight!
They were to go out, stand firm, hold their position and watch what the LORD would do!
(You can read the whole account in 2Chronicles Chapter 20.)

Now, in order to be successful the King and the people had to BELIEVE!  And then they had to act on that belief.   They had to believe in the LORD God and believe in His prophet and then prove they believed by doing what the prophet said the LORD had told them.  The same holds true for us today. Let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves of the importance of prayer, belief, and action.

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.

Judges 6:10This Week’s Memory Verse:
And I said unto you, I am the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice.  Judges 6:10 KJV

This Week’s Message:
Jehovah the existing One, the One True God, the God who brought you through many previous battles, trials and troubles, is speaking.
He is reminding the people of who He is. He is reminding them that He once before helped them conquer the Amorites.
He is reminding them to not fear those enemies and little gods, because He, their God is with them and for them.
He is their strength, protection and provision in the present day as He was in the past days. Yet….the people do not listen, nor obey His voice.

Is the LORD speaking to you today? Is He telling you to “fear not” ? If so, listen to His voice, believe Him and obey whatever He is telling you to do.

Fear Not Scripture: Joshua 10:25

Joshua 10:25This Week’s Scripture:
And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage:
Joshua 10:25 KJV

This Week’s Message:
Here we see Joshua telling the people of Israel, once again, to “Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage”

Joshua and his people of war and mighty men of valour, had previously fought and won two great battles, one of which was Jericho. because the LORD God had given victory.
Now, Joshua and his troops had defeated five more cities and their Kings, because the LORD had told Joshua He was giving them into his hand to conquer.
The LORD even listened to Joshua and made the sun and moon stand still for about a whole day. ( Read about it in Joshua 10:12 thru 10:14 )

So, Joshua again is telling the people of Israel to “Fear not” for the LORD would continue giving them victory over their enemies, as He had done, if they would remain loyal to Him and honor and obey Him.

And so shall the LORD do for us. In Christ we have the victory over sin and death and God will continue to protect, provide and give us victory over any enemy that might try to come against us, if we trust Him and obey Him daily.

Memorize this verse and “Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage” for the LORD is with you.

Once again the LORD is saying “Fear not”. First, He was telling Moses to tell the people of Israel, then He was telling Moses to tell Joshua, and now He is telling Joshua Himself.

Joshua is now in charge, Moses is gone and Joshua is the new leader of Israel. He led the people across the Jordan River. He led them to Jericho where God caused the walls to fall down and the Israelites o conquered it. However, now, Joshua is troubled and greatly upset. He is in fear and is in dismay because his army has lost a battle, one which he thought they should have won and he is questioning God as to why. God tells him it is because some of the Israelites have been disobedient. They have sinned against God by taking things that God had forbid them to take. Joshua did not know this, but God knew, and God had not been with them when they went into battle because of it—so they lost.

Now, God is telling Joshua to find the ones who stole the goods and punish them and destroy the forbidden goods. Then, God will once again be with Israel and Joshua will lead them into victory against the enemies.

There is a lesson to learn here. It is obedience. God loves us but he requires obedience. As a just Father he will discipline those who disobey Him. Just as our parents love us, they also expect us to be obedient to them, otherwise we have to face consequences. God will never forsake His children, but He will discipline them for their own good, just as our parents would do.

Let’s think upon this and be obedient out of love and reverencere to God. For He is with us and He says “Fear Not” to us as well. He will lead us to victory if we listen to Him and do what He says.

Memorize this verse as a reminder to “Fear Not” and neither be dismayed.

Blessings to you daily as you memorize His word.

Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 31:8

Deuteronomy 31:8This Week’s Scripture:  And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed. Deuteronomy 31:8 KJV

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is very similar to last week’s.
Last week Moses was speaking to all of Israel before they were to cross the Jordan River.
Here, in this verse, Moses is speaking to Joshua, who he has appointed to be the new leader of Israel. Joshua will be the one to lead the people across the River.

Joshua has big shoes to fill as he is replacing Moses as leader. Joshua at this point is probably getting a bit fearful, perhaps doubting his ability, and Moses sensing this, encourages him.
Moses personally calls Joshua out and reminds him in front of all Israel that he is to “Fear Not” for the LORD (Jehovah=the Supreme God) will be going before him.

In essence Moses is saying” “Don’t worry or be afraid Joshua. You can do this because the LORD is going before you into that River. The LORD (Jehovah) will be with you every step of the way.
The LORD (the Supreme God) is not going to fail you, nor forsake you. Don’t let fear overtake you. Don’t doubt. Just trust the LORD and go forth!”

Believers, are we not all leaders in some way? Are we not supposed to lead others to the LORD? Are we not supposed to encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ?
Think about it. Memorize this verse and use it to encourage yourself and to perhaps encourage other leaders that you know.

Yes, the LORD is always with us. We need not fear new horizons, for He will go before us to show us the way. Let’s not fear, nor doubt. We can trust Him.

Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 31:6

ThisDueteronomy 31:6 Week’s Scripture:
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.  Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV


This Week’s Message:

This week’s verse is so uplifting and encouraging!
Moses is speaking to Israel just before they are to cross the Jordan River.
At this time they are feeling fearful because they are about to cross a river, go into a new land where they might face hardships, challenges and enemies, plus their wonderful leader, Moses, who has been leading them for many years, will not be going with them for God has chosen Joshua to be their leader.
They are facing a lot of changes and unknown circumstances.

Moses was telling the people:

  • Strengthen yourselves in mind, body and spirit so that you will prevail against all odds
  • Be brave and bold
  • Do not dread, tremble or resist
  • Do not stand in awe of the enemy

Why was Moses telling them this? He was reminding them of one important thing that they needed to never forget!
That the LORD=Jehovah = the existing One, the Supreme God, the One True God, Elohiym, is your God.
This LORD God goes with you, He walks with you. As you depart He comes alongside you. He proceeds with you.
As you move, He moves. He will not go away from you. He will not abandon you. He will not leave you alone.
So don’t be faint or feeble. Don’t become dishearted or worry or doubt.
He will hold you up. He will not fail and therefore, you will not fail.
As long as you walk with Him you will be safe and you will succeed!

What a great message for us today! Believers, this same LORD God is also our God. He has not changed. As He did for Israel He will do for us.
Memorize this verse and claim it for yourself! Do not fear nor be afraid as He leads and you walk with Him daily.

Fear Not Scripture: Deuteronomy 1:21

Deuteronomy 1:21This Week’s Scripture:
Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged. Deuteronomy 1:21 KJV

This Week’s Message:
Moses was speaking to the Israelites, refreshing their memories of when he had told them what the LORD God had said for them to do.
He was reminding them that the LORD God had told them to go up and possess the land because He, the LORD God, had set it up for them to be able to take it.
Moses was saying “Remember, I told you that you should fear not and neither be discouraged, yet you did not listen and you did not obey. You rebelled and did not go because you were afraid!”

What is the LORD God telling you to do today? What is He setting before you? Is He telling you to go forth and fear not? Is He saying do not be discouraged ?
If so, do not be like the Israelites. Listen to Him, trust Him and obey Him.
Go forth believing in Him and do not fear.

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!

Fear Not Scripture: Genesis 21:17

Genesis 21:17This Week’s Scripture:
“What ails you, Hagar?  Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.” Genesis 21:17 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
The first part of this verse says: And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven,…

This verse shows me:
First of all—God, Elohiym, the Supreme God, the Creator, heard
(perceived, regarded, listened, understood) the voice of Hagar’s child.

Second–That God didn’t just hear, He responded. He sent His angel to communicate with Hagar, the lad’s mother.

Third–It shows God’s concern, his love and compassion. He wants to let Hagar know that He is aware of what is going on in her life and in the life of her child, for the verse says: “God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.”
God wanted to let Hagar know that He knew exactly where she and her son were and that she should not be afraid for God was going to help.

Believers, isn’t this a wonderful verse for us to memorize and reflect upon? Don’t you think that each one of us could substitute our name in place of Hagar’s name in this verse?
Don’t you agree that God would also tell us that He hears our cries just as He heard the lad’s cries? And that He knows just where we are and that we should not be afraid for He will help us? For,  we are His children.

Plus, God not only hears, He sees also.  In Genesis 16:13 Hagar called Him “El-Roi–The God Who Sees Me.”

In Malachi 3:6 God says: “For I am the LORD, I change not;”—since God doesn’t change, should we not expect that He would also hear and see us today?

“Fear Not”—Our God–Elohiym says.  Are we hearing Him?

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

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!

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.
