This Week’s Memory Verse:
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1 KJV
This verse has always been my go to verse. I guess it could be called my Life Verse.
Long ago I memorized this verse and many times since it has come into my mind when I have been in trouble or need. Many times I have spoken it out loud to myself or to God in troubling times, and many times it has proved true, as God was always my refuge and my strength. He indeed was a very present help in trouble. He has never failed me and I trust He never will.
So, I believe this verse is a very important verse for us believers to memorize and call to mind in times of trouble and need. It is a verse which will help us endure troubling end times because we will be reminded that our God is always with us to help us, protect us and give us strength for any situation we might have to face. He indeed is a Helper, in fact that is one of His names. (Psalm 54:4, Hebrews 13:6)

This 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:
- 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.
- God was telling Jacob where to go in the present time–He was giving Jacob direction for his life.
- 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,
