Girl to Girl Talk: What Is Your Favorite Bible Verse?

Every week, I go through the “Girl Talk” section of Project Inspired and look for those seeking advice and council. I want to help answer some questions you may have about living out your Christian life and walk of faith! We want PI to be a safe place where you can ask questions.

This week, I was checking out the Girl Talk forum and saw a post regarding Bible verses, favorite chapters and scriptures. I wanted to ask you what your favorite scripture is, and if you have one I want you comment below and share it with PI!

If you want to read the full post, click here.

I personally have so many favorite scriptures, but I will share some of them. One is in the book of Philippians where Paul was talking about being content with what you have, whether rich or poor and whether hungry or well-fed. This scripture has helped me get through difficult times, hard days at school and when I needed God’s supernatural power.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Philippians 4:13).

Another verse I love that gives me peace is a scripture in the same chapter that says,

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 every situation, 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 also love the book of Isaiah; it is such a powerful, prophetic book. One of my favorite verses is in Isaiah in chapter 61,

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives…release… the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor…to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy 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.

Another great verse in Isaiah is in chapter 40, verse 31. It says,

Those who hope in the Lord
 will renew their strength.
 They will soar on wings like eagles;
 they will run and not grow weary,
 they will walk and not be faint.

Even though I have way more favorite scriptures I could share, here are a few final verses. Ephesians 3:20:

 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Psalm 91 is a powerful scripture to remember the protection we have when we abide in the Lord and in His presence. The entire chapter is powerful; I have most of it memorized because it is one you need in life and it’s one I have used in my walk with the Lord.

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
 will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, 
my God, in whom I trust.’ Surely he will save you
 from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers,
 and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart (1-4).

I love the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), and Hebrews is such a powerful book, too! Hebrews 11 discusses the heroes of the faith, which may be at the top of my list. I just LOVE God’s Word; it is spiritual food…just like the Word says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good…” (Psalm 34:8).

His word is so satisfying to the soul; it nourishes and fills us up in the Spirit. God is so amazing and gave us His Word as a road map for life! I encourage you to memorize the Bible bit by bit.

PI readers, what is YOUR favorite Bible verse? Do you have the passage memorized?

    Jeremiah 29:11- “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘Plans for good and not for evil, to give you hope and a future.'” This verse helps me through tough times 🙂

    Song Of Solomon 4:7
    You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.

    My favorite verse is Mark 10:45~ “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” If Christ the SON OF GOD came to serve us, how much more should we, human beings, follow His example and serve others! 🙂

    I have A LOT of favorites, as I’m sure a lot of you do, but this particular verse popped up in my mind.

    (Jude 1:24) Now ALL glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into His GLORIOUS presence without a single fault.

    I love Matthew 19:26 “With God all things are possible.” I also like Psalm 139:13-14 The hands that made the stars are holding your heart. You are fearfully and wonderfully made.” Phil 4:6 is good too. “Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.”

      I’m curious as to which version of the bible can Psalm 139:13-14 be found in “The hands that made the stars are holding your heart. You are fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Particularly the first one.)

      In my KJV one, that verse is not in there; in fact, it’s quite different:

      “13 – For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
      14 – I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

      If these bibles are different with different verses, how can I know to trust it? I know the first line in the verse I couldn’t find in my bible was in a song; so maybe a person mistakenly stated it was a verse in Psalm?

    “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter though it. But small is the gate and narrow is the road to life, and only a few find it.”-Matthew 7:13-14 Is my favorite because when I’m sinning that the narrow gate is the only way to go. That wide gate can be very tempting, but this verse helps so much. 🙂

    I also love Philippians 4:13. Some of my other favorites are Proverbs 3:5-6 ~ Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight. And 2 Timothy 1:7 ~ For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. I just repeat these verses to myself all the time!

    I love Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future – it’s my life verse.

    Also, a huuuge favorite of mine recently is Romans 12:2 – do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, His good, pleasing, and perfect will.

      I love Jeremiah 29:11 too! It’s great inspiration if you don’t know what God is asking you to do or if you don’t know why or when something is happening. 🙂

    Mine is Revelations 12:11 ‘And they have overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.’ When I think about it though I change the they’s and their’s into me and my.

    Jeremiah 29:11 (: I’m a counselor at this Christian kids’ camp every summer and last year all of the leaders were asked to do a small Bible study on a favorite verse or something we went through in our lives. I talked to the kids in my group about a situation I went through where I felt like I was alone and used Jeremiah 29:11 as the topic verse. The kids really seemed to understand it and I was amazed because there were some really young kids in the group. It was really awesome (:

    I love Isaiah 40:31, too. But probably the verse that has moved me the most is Matthew 7:3. >> “Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye when you have a log in your own?”
    I love that verse so much…

  12. kliminaberry

    Posted by kliminaberry on May 15, 2013 at 14:32

    my favorite verse is nehemiah 8:10
    the joy of the lord is my strength
    cause the lord does give me strength:)

    Micah 7:18-19
    “Who is a God like you,
    who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
    of the remnant of his inheritance?
    You do not stay angry forever
    but delight to show mercy.
    You will again have compassion on us;
    you will tread our sins underfoot
    and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”

    My favorite verse is Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and the evidence of things unseen. This was my first acts retreat verse and it has rang true ever since.

    Psalm 23:4. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me, Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

  16. Savedbymysavior23

    Posted by Savedbymysavior23 on May 14, 2013 at 13:20

    My favorite Bible verse is Joshua 1:9; Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” This verse has helped me with my mom being deployed to Afganistan:)

  17. Gracers22

    Posted by Gracers22 on May 14, 2013 at 12:40

    There are so many verses I love. My 2 favorite ones:

    Isaiah 41:10
    So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

    Another one I like is
    Micah 6:8
    He has shown you, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you?
    To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

    I like Psalm 94:19 a lot.
    When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19 (NIV) I personally find peace in this verse because I suffer with anxiety. Whenever I feel anxiety coming on I turn to this verse. And remember I am set free.

    Posted by JamieW on May 13, 2013 at 18:51

    Most definitely Isaiah 41:11

    1 Timothy 4:12 and I really like Psalms 9:1

  21. PumpkinGirl

    Posted by PumpkinGirl on May 13, 2013 at 15:29

    Romans 8:28 …. “For we know that all things work together for those who love God”. The interesting this is, I heard about this verse about a year before my parents split up. And ever since it’s just kinda been my verse for when I feel as though things couldn’t get any worse!

  22. kellybarta14

    Posted by kellybarta14 on May 13, 2013 at 15:23

    Jeremiah 29:11 definitely 🙂

    Posted by hnj922 on May 13, 2013 at 14:18

    Joshua 1:9 is my favorite and has been since my uncle gave me this cross necklace before he left to Iraq the first time. The verse says “I Will be strong and courageous, I will not be terrified or discourages, for the Lord our God is with us where ever we go.

  24. Hope

    Posted by Hope on May 13, 2013 at 14:14

    Mine is the verse i was named after: Jerimiah 29:11 For i know that plans i have for you says the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. (my name is hope and my mom had a high risk pregnancy and when it said plans to prosper you and not to harm you it was like God said it would be O.K and plans to give you a Hope– being me:)…)But John 3:16 and Proverbs 31:30 are up there too:)

    I love Romans 15:4 NIV “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.” Always reminds me that things happen for a reason.

    Posted by leahgrace99 on May 13, 2013 at 12:29

    Philippians 4:13 is my favorite too!!! And it has been for a loooonnnngggg time! Lately though, the verse God has been giving me is Proverbs 3:5-6.
