Summertime Bible Verse Challenge

Two more Thursdays for our Summertime Bible Verse Challenge. Thank you for leaving your verse/verses in the comments so I can add them below.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

From Vera:

“Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.”
‭‭Habakkuk‬ ‭3:17-19‬ ‭ESV‬‬

From Libby:

“May the Lord be praised! Day after day He bears our burdens; God is our salvation. Selah

Ps. 68:19 HCSB

From HappyOne (Karen):

Isaiah 40:8

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

From Maristella:

Matthew 5:15-16

“Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven”.

Summertime Bible Verse Challenge

Good day everyone. If you have a verse/verses to share today add them to the comments and I’ll post them below. Thank you in advance to all who come by to read and to share.

2 Corinthians 2:14-17 (ESV)

14 But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. 15 For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, 16 to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God’s word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.

From Vera:

‭‭Revelation‬ ‭22:12-13‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

From Maristella:

John 15:5

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

‭‭From Willow:

Isaiah 33:6

And He will be the stability of your times, A wealth of salvation, wisdom and knowledge; The fear of the Lord is his treasure.

Thursday Summertime Bible Verse Challenge

Halfway through July already.  It’s time again for our Thursday Bible Verse Challenge. Choose any verse you would like to share from the Bible and leave it in the comments. I will add it below. Thank you in advance for sharing here.

Matthew 7:13-14 (ESV):

Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.

I’m reading 1 Corinthians during this month and chapters 1-4 each day for 2 weeks. “Repetition is the mother of learning.” Here are a few verses that I’ve underlined.

1 Corinthians 1:9:

God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Corinthians 1:25:

For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

1 Corinthians 2:12:

Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.

From Mildred:

Isaiah 41:13

“For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I am the one who helps you.’”

From Karen:

Isaiah 5:20-21:

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

From Vera:

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:15-23‬ ‭ESV‬‬:

“For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”

From Maristella:

2 Timothy 1:9

“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.”

Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, 
who does not turn to the proud,

your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;
none can compare with you!
I will proclaim and tell of them
yet they are more than can be told.

Psalm 119:33-37 (ESV)

Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes; and I will keep it to the end.
Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.
Lead me in the path of your commandments, for I delight in it.
Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain!
Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways.

From Vera:

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.”

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Thursday Bible Verse Challenge ~ The Psalms

It’s the first Thursday in June and we are continuing in our Bible Verse Challenge in The Psalms.

Leave your verse/verses in the comments and I’ll add them below. Thank you in advance for your contributions.

Psalm 33:20-22:

Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.

From Vera:

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭8:1-9‬ ‭ESV‬‬

From Maristella:

Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
Psalm 63:3-4

Thursday Bible Verse Challenge ~ The Psalms

If it’s Thursday it must be time for our Bible Verse Challenge. We are still in the Psalms. Share your verse/verses in the comments and I’ll add them below.

I’m sharing from Psalm 19 again. These verses cover God’s Word, Effectual Revelation.

Psalm 19:7-11 (ESV)

The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

From Vera:

“For it is you who light my lamp; the Lord my God lightens my darkness.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭18:28‬ ‭ESV‬‬

From Maristella:

Restore us, Lord God Almighty;
make your face shine on us,
that we may be saved.
Psalm 80:19

From HappyOne (Karen):

Psalm 100
1. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
2. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless is name.
5. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Thursday Bible Verse Challenge ~ The Psalms

Continuing in our Bible Verse Challenge for the months of May and June in The Psalms. Add your verse or portion from the Psalms and I’ll post it here.

This week I’m sharing from Psalm 19 (The Law of the Lord is Perfect). Psalm 19:1-6 addresses God’s Word, a general revelation. Next week I’ll share Psalm 19:7-11 which is God’s Word, Effectual Revelation.

Psalm 19:1-6

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runts its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from it’s heat. 

From Maristella:

” I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.”
Psalm 130:5

From Vera:

“I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭116:1-2‬ ‭ESV‬‬

From Patricia:

Psalms 96:1-6

Sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing to the Lord and praise his name;
every day tell how he saves us.
3 Tell the nations of his glory;
tell all peoples the miracles he does,

4 because the Lord is great; he should be praised at all times.
He should be honored more than all the gods,
5 because all the gods of the nations are only idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
6 The Lord has glory and majesty;
he has power and beauty in his Temple.

From HappyOne (Karen)

Psalm 40:1-3 KJV
I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

Thursday Bible Verse Challenge – The Psalms

A new month and a new challenge for anyone who would like to participate. For the month of May and June please share any verse or verses from The Psalms in the comments. I will post your selection below. Hope you will be encouraged in reading the Truth from The Psalms.

Psalm 4:4

Be angry, and so not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. 

In my Bible I had a note to see Ephesians 4:26-27 in relation to this verse in Psalms 4.

Ephesians 4:26-27 

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.

From Barbara:

For me, it is Psalm 121 that brings comfort. The last verse especially..’The Lord will keep you from all harm, He will watch over your life.’

From Maristella:

When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
Psalm 94:18

From Vera in memory of our dear Mom:

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭103:1-5‬ ‭ESV‬‬

From Karen:

Psalm 19:14 KJV Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in the sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
