A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Leviticus 26:12

This Week’s Memory Verse: Leviticus 26:12 KJV
And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.

This Week’s Message:
God was reminding the Israelites of the Blessings of Obedience. He was telling them to remember it was Him who brought them out of Egypt and reminding them of His Commandments and the importance of always obeying Him and honoring Him. He told them if they did He would walk among them and be their God, and they would be His people. He would dwell with them in the Tabernacle and would go where
ever they journeyed. He would bless them and provide for them. They would have a close personal relationship with each other. The choice was theirs, Him or the World, unfortunately their fleshly desires always seemed to lead them astray and they were never able to obey. That is why Christ had to come to fulfill the Law and bring those who believe in Him into a right relationship with God.

To me, this verse seems to be the promise of of what we believers have in Christ, for His Holy Spirit lives within us and is with us always and in Christ we can have a close personal relationship with God and receive His many blessings, peace, protection, and provision.

So, let’s memorize this beautiful, encouraging verse this week. Let’s give thanks that we are God’s people and that His Spirit dwells within us because of Christ.
Then, let’s walk and talk with God daily as His people.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

Fear Not Scripture: Joshua 8:1

No Fear--Joshua8-1And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed:…Joshua 8:1 KJV

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 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.

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.
