It’s Thursday the first of October and we are on the letter D in our Truth from A to Z Bible Verse Challenge. It’s been so good to read the verses all who participate have come up with. This week I’m traveling and it could take me a while to add the verses you share here but I will eventually get to them. Thanks for understanding.
D is for dominions, dead, dwell
Colossians 1:15-20 (The Preeminence of Christ)
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or DOMINIONS or rulers or authorities–all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the DEAD, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to DWELL, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
Mrs. T at Across My Kitchen Table chose the word Deliver. She has an in depth post on her blog on Deliverance. Pop over to read it, you’ll be glad you did. Here are some of the verses she posted.
“[He] hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son.” (Colossians 1:13)
“For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.” (Psalm 116:8-9)
“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.” (2 Peter 2:9)
“The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles … Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:17, 19)
“And call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me.” (Psalm 50:15)
“But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD; He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him.”
From my sister Vera: D is for Decision
I love how this verse shows us that through it all a God is in control.
“The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.”
Proverbs 16:33 ESV
D is for Desire,Do…
“I have the right to* do* anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.”
1 Corinthians 6:12 | NIV
From Willow at Willow’s Cottage: D is for Depend
