5 of My Favorite Scriptures!

PI readers, as many of you know, reading the Word of God is vital to growing closer to Him, understanding the Lord and His character, and becoming Christ-like. The Bible is filled with examples of people like you and me who learned by experience how to hear the voice of God–whether in joyful times or hard ones. The Word of God is truth, all-powerful and never fails.

The Word will help you walk into a stronger relationship with Jesus and with the Father. You will continue to know and understand the wisdom and revelation, and what your purpose is in life! God’s Word is vital for our growth, just like food is for our bodies and water is to keep us hydrated! The Bible is like our daily bread and the Holy Spirit the living water.

Some of my favorite scriptures have helped me through both dry and abundant seasons, and I want to share them with you. I hope you are blessed by these verses! I want to motivate you to read the Word of God daily, even if it is just one scripture a day. Think on the scripture, dwell on that for the day and you will see the fruit of the blessings in your life! You will see how God will reveal himself to you through His powerful Word, the Bible.

5 of my favorite Scriptures:

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: REJOICE! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus…I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do EVERYTHING through him who gives me strength (Philipians 4:4-7, 12-13).

And we that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose…What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? (Romans 8:28, 31-32).

I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you (Matthew 17:20).

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion–to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devasted; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations…Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance, and so they will inherit a double portion in their land and everlasting joy will be theirs (Isaiah 61:1-4,7).

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame…The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them. Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him. Fear the Lord, you His saints, for those who fear Him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing (Psalm 34:4-5, 7-10).

I have so many more scriptures I just delight in and love, but these are some that have been so powerful and have spoken to my life personally. PI readers, what is your favorite scripture verse? Do you know it by heart

    Matthew 21:21-Jesus answered and said unto them, “Verily, I say unto you, if ye have faith and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done unto the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea, it shall be done.” I memorized it in 4th grade 🙂

    I am unsure of its location in the Bible, but my favorite verse is “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen”! Thank you for this wonderful post.

      Also, Galatians 5:20 – 5:22, the fruits of the spirit is something I try (some days with success others without)to act out day to day. God is so gracious in his forgiveness of my slip-ups!

    Thank you so much for this article! 🙂 (It is so uncommon, but I just love this rush of excitement I get when I memorize a beautiful new verse; just think, you are placing in your mind a piece of God’s Holy Word! SO incredible.) Here is one of my favorite verses; I have been going over it in my mind before I go to sleep, and reading it again when I wake up. Psalm 143:8…”Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.”

    Whenever I share my testimony, I always talk about Jeremiah 29:11 because that is the verse that helped me work through my struggles (depression, attempting suicide, cutting, etc) and it is still the verse that i look to today whenever i feel overwhelmed, like life is pointless. To me, i see it as God’s promise that He’ll give me a life worth living and a happy ending 🙂
