I am so thankful that I committed to join in on the LPM Scripture Memory Challenge at the beginning of the year. Along with many of you, I committed to memorize 2 verses (or passages) of Scripture each month for the entire year of 2009.
I can hardly believe that it is already time for my SIXTH memory verse of the year. The verse that I memorized for the first half of the month of March was Psalm 25:4-5.
"Show me your ways, O Lord,
Teach me your paths;
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in You all day long."
These verses have been such a comfort to me in recent days. I have needed this daily reminder that ALL of my hope is in Him - and Him ONLY! (Every time I think of this, it reminds me of the song "Jesus Messiah" --all our hope is in You!)
This time, I have had great difficulty deciding which verse that I wanted to memorize. There are so many that I have made a note of that I would like to commit to memory, but the next verse that God has impressed upon me to memorize and meditate on is:
"He is your constant source of stability; He abundantly provides safety and great wisdom; He gives all this to those who fear Him."
Isaiah 33:6 NET
Is that great or what? HE is my constant source of stability! He is the solid rock on which I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.
And what is the key to unlocking all of this? Fear is the key -- fear of the Lord. The fear of the Lord is wisdom. I LOVE this verse!
BTW...It's still not too late for you to jump in and join in memorizing scriptures for 2009. Just click over and read this post and join with us. I know that you'll be glad that you did!
