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–Z

Gold Letter ZThis Week’s Memory Verse:
Do not let your heart envy sinners, But be zealous for the fear of the LORD all the day;
Proverbs 23:17 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
“Zealous” is not a word we hear very much nowadays, it means: ardently devoted, eager for something, actively or intensely diligent, enthusiastic or passionate about something.
and “fear of the LORD” means: a reverential awe for the One True God=Jehovah. It means to have respect for Him, not to be afraid of Him, but to reverence Him for who He is.

So, to be zealous for the fear of the LORD all the day would mean that we believers, should be ardently devoted to the LORD.
We should be in reverential awe over Him daily.

We should be actively pursuing His word, His will, His way. Our passion should be in and on the LORD, not on anything or anyone else.

Let’s memorize this verse as a daily reminder to ourselves.

Note:
This is the last memory verse in this “Nuggets of Truth” series.
Next week we will begin a new weekly memorization series–which will be announced soon.

Thank you and Blessings—L.J.  SGLY Ministry

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–D

Gold Letter DThis Week’s Memory Verse:
“ Do not be afraid, only believe” –Jesus
Mark 5:36 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
This week’s memory verse is the words of Jesus to the ruler of the synagogue, Jairus, whose daughter was on the brink of death.
(Read the whole story in Mark chapter 5)

Jairus, had come to Jesus to beg healing for his daughter but while Jesus was on the way to go to her, he was delayed by crowds and by a woman who sought healing also.
Therefore, during all of this, some people came up to Jairus telling him that his daughter had already died and that he should not trouble Jesus any further.
It was then Jesus spoke these words to him–in essence, to do not fear, do not listen to others, only believe in Me. I am on my way to help you, to cure your daughter, listen to Me, follow Me, for no delays can stop Me, nothing on earth can alter my plan, which is the plan of the Father, trust in Me, have confidence I what I say.  Jairus was a ruler in the synagogue, but Jesus was a ruler of all!
Jesus had power over all things and we see, in the end, that Jairus did trust in Jesus and that the daughter was healed, even in spite of those who stood around mocking Him.

There is a good lesson here for all of us—“Do not be afraid, only believe”
Our faith sometimes must be put into action. 
So, let’s memorize this verse and remember it in our time of fear, doubt or grief, and especially when our prayers are not immediately answered.
For from this story, we see, sometimes, we have to be patient and wait,  and sometimes our faith and trust will be tested, but in the end, Jesus’ words are always true.
