Word Wednesday by KM Wilsher

No crossword puzzles, vocabulary or word games, but on Word Wednesday I want to talk about what we are reading in the bible this week. It’s not a Bible study, sermon or deep devotional, just a place to reflect on a verse or passage that may have touched us this week.

I have heard so much in my Bible study recently to meditate on, and memorize verses. I guess it is not new. I mean that is what we did in Sunday School, right? Well, yesterday I someone said to start with just a couple, so here are mine:

James 4:7
Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.
Revelation 2:7
'Let everyone listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. To everyone who conquers I will give the privilege of eating from the tree of life that is in God's paradise.'"

Do you have verses important to you? That you meditate on regularly?

"Let us set our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

That verse always ministers to me. I literally have to remind myself that I am a son from another kingdom, and that I am living in a darkened land that counts me as an enemy. I'm a solder equipped with truth and love. Those are my weapons in a world living in a lie, and with out true love.

I love James. Great verse you have there.

I've been so bad about my daily reading lately....Thanks for the kick in the bum to get going again.

Have a great day KM

Brandon, what a great verse. Remiding that we encounter spiritual warfare. . .I love what you said, too. "I'm a solder equipped with truth and love. Those are my weapons in a world living in a lie, and with out true love." I'm going to meditate on this verse.

Lynn, You read the bible in a year not too long ago. It hasn't been long for you. You are an encouragement to me :) Hope you're well!

Thanks for coming over guys!

I really needed that verse from James. Thanks.

I like to meditate on Psalm 23. It always brings me inner peace.

Isaiah 6:8 has been stuck in my head for three days now:

Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

Yeah, Kat, Psalms 23 :) Good choice!

Billy, that is an awesome scripture :) Wow!

Thanks for coming over guys!
Have a great weekend :)
