Truth for Today #3

Thursday January 20th

On Thursdays my posts will include verses that stood out in my readings from the Bible during the week. One, two, three or maybe more. If you have a verse/verses that you read during the week and would like share, leave it/them in the comments and I will add it/them to the post. Let’s dig deep in God’s Truth this year!

I read this prayer from Alistair Begg in his new devotional called Truth for Life and wanted to share it with you. If you are looking for a good devotional to guide your reading this year I can recommend it. His prayer is an encouragement to read God’s Word, the Bible.

“Lord Jesus, help me to become a student of the Book, to no longer live with confusion or uneasiness but to be filled with Your knowledge as one who resides in Your company, that I might live and grieve with hope.” 

My verses this week are from the Apostle Paul telling of his conversion story to King Agrippa.

Acts 26:15-18

And I said, ‘Who are you Lord,?’ and the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. But rise and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and witness to the things in which you have seen me and to those in which I will appear to you, delivering you from your people and from the Gentiles-to whom I am sending you to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

From Vera:

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:28‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

From Leonard:

Matthew 14:27

“But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

From Patricia:

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness and self-control. Against such things is no law. 

Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice.

From Karen:

Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

From Cindy:

Samuel 22:2

The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer.
