Scripture Memorization #13

Oh my goodness! Isn't life flying by at a rapid pace? It seems like these scripture posts are due about every 3 days . (Actually, the next one is due in 2 days :-/ ) I've talked with a dear friend of mine who is doing this, too, and she is feeling the same way. Satan has a way of making Spiritual growth more challenging and difficult than need be. However, we are Conquerors and Victors, not in ourselves, but through Christ who gives us the strength to keep moving forward to our goal. "Thank you Lord for knowing our hearts and keep our good intentions moving in the right direction at a steady pace."

Here is the next verse as I memorize the 13th chapter of I Corinthians:

SSMT # 13:
"Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude."

I Corinthians 13:4 NLT

2 in 1

This post is a 2 in 1. I forgot to post verse # 11 (June 1 - 14) so here it is along with #12 (June 15 - 30).

Now through November I will be memorizing I Corinthians 13 - the love chapter. What a chapter for all of us to put to practice! What a wonderful world it would be if everyone would follow God's guidelines, precepts and laws! I believe the word is pronounced "Heaven". Someday, we who do love Him and do our best to follow His ways and have made Him Lord in our lives, will live in such an environment filled with love, no strife, no jealousy, no hate -- no sin! We have so much to look forward to don't we? Now, for the first two verses of this beautiful chapter:

SSMT #11

"If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn't love others, I would only be a nosiy gong or a clanging cymbal."

I Cor. 13:1 NLT


"If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God's secret plans and possessed all knowlege, and if I hd such faith that I could move mountains, but didn't love others, I would be nothing."

I Cor. 13:2 NLT

Scripture #10

I Corinthians 13:1 - NLT

"1 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal."

I will be memorizing the entire chapter which will pretty much fill up my total for the year (24 verses). I really like the way the NLT words this chapter and look forward to committing it to memory.

Scripture Memory Challenge

This year is passing so swiftly. April was a blurrrrr. . . . and now May is in
full swing! I God's word and I find it to always be so timely -- it fits just where I am. With the hectic lifestyles we live today, peace can be hard to come by, but we can have peace by not allowing our thinking go in the wrong direction. Keeping our minds on the Lord and fellowshipping with Him brings promised peace!
It's time for another scripture verse to memorize for 2011.

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee."
Isaiah 26:3 KVV

#6: Eph. 6:12 NIV "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

#7: Romans 8:38 NIV "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future nor any powers,...."

Scripture Memorization

SSMT# 4 - Hebrews 4:12

"For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the ♥heart♥.

I've put this one to the test in recent days and let me assure you that it is true! Every word of it! Also, Ephesians 6:10-18 (NIV) says this:

The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

If you will look closely, you will see that the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, is the ONLY offensive weapon listed here. The only one!! Without the word we are only dodging, ducking and shielding ourselves from the enemy, but with the sword of the Spirit - the word - we can move forward and march an attach the forces of hell. And may I add, I want Satan to be VERY sorry he EVER messed with me! (I believe he is -- and I'm not through with him yet).

February 1 - 14:
"Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God."

Mark 10:27

. . . all things ARE possible with God!!!'

Scripture Memorization

Once again I am participating in the SSM - Siesta Scripture Memorization - through the LPM blog (Beth Moore's Living Proof Ministries). We are to post our scriptures on the 1st and 15th of each month. We will be memorizing at least 24 verses over the course of the year.

Due to traveling and just being busy, I have not yet posted the first verse so I will post both of January's in this post.

The theme of my verses this year I feel will be primarily to do with Faith - taking God at his Word and believing what he has for me can be my reality. So my first two verses are:

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."
Hebrews 11:1 -NIV

"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exsists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him."
Hebrews 11:6 - NIV

God began dealing with me about this last winter. I wrote a post about it here. More than anything, I want to please God, therefore, I must have faith in him and take he literally at his Word. God cannot lie, so. . . what he says is true and he will keep his promises. Now, it's my move.
