Memory Verses 2018: Week 3

I believe that Satan doesn’t want us in God’s word and will use any and every means possible to keep us from the truth and therefore we must be prepared and have a PLAN!

To work on hiding God's word in our hearts, 
this year I'm going to be posting a memory verse for each week
 along with a printable to print out and hang up. 


Here's the verse for week 3:

Fear NOT? I don't know about you but NOT being fearful is a huge struggle for me.
I worry about everything from big things to tiny things. 

Thankfully this verse gives us some GOOD news when it comes to fear. 

It tells us to not be afraid for two reasons: 


  1. He is with us. 
  2. He is our God. 

We don’t have to be afraid because we have a hope that others don’t. 
We know that God will strengthen us and help us in each situation that we face.
 He dwells in heaven, knows the future and the past, has unlimited wisdom and resources 
and in this verse says that He WILL help us. Not that he might, he WILL. 
His presence guarantees strength to endure every trial, to bear up courageously 
under all suffering, persecution, struggle, and affliction. 
God assures that we are NEVER EVER without help. 
When we realize the fact that God is on our side, 
that He will walk with us through any situation or circumstance or struggle
 that we might face, we can see why He tells us to not be afraid. 

God upholds us with His mighty power. 

I find such comfort that when we are exhausted and our own strength is small and spent, 
when we stumble and fall and have no strength to pick ourselves back up, 
our loving Lord reaches down His powerful right hand and lifts us. 
As long as we remember that God is with us, we can boldly proclaim, 
“I am not afraid because my God is ever with me! 
I am anxious for nothing; the Lord is my God!”


You can print out the verses in English and Spanish
 and the complete list in a folder  HERE


     

I also created some verse cards that you can print out and punch a hole in to carry round with you.

  1. Wonderful verse! I decided that when I worried about something I was telling God I didn't think He was competent to handle it! A little arrogant of me, don't you think? Now when I start to worry about something, I immediately turn it into a prayer and give it to God, knowing He will always work things out for the best. I used to worry over so much that it stole the joy of today...not any more!
