The aim of "Memory Verse Monday" is to:
1. Memorise a passage (or passages) of scripture.
2. Share why you have chosen the verse or verses that you have.
3. Encourage one another with God has been saying to you through this verse.
4. Share the ways in which you find remembering verses works for you.
I have just recently started Beth Moore's study-- Stepping Up-a journey through the Psalms of Ascent. This is a portion of scripture that the Jews would recite on their way to the temple for feasts. Beth has asked us to memorize the 121st Psalm as we are going through the six week study. So for this next week I will memorize one and two.
I think it will be good to memorize this. It is so real. These people were on a journey and Beth reminds us that many times their journeys were full of danger and it would only take a small accident out in the middle of no where to end their life. I am reminded that I can call for help at almost anytime if I get in some type of physical danger or trouble. But in times of spiritual trouble there is only ONE who can give us the help we need. How cool would it be, to be so sure that our help comes from THE LORD that we could boldly declare---MY HELP COMES FROM THE LORD? Not a friend, nor a bank, nor a credit card, nor some lucky number, not even the love of our life--but THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH. I pray that sinks into my mind and heart as as I memorize these verses this week.Psalm 121(HCSB)
The LORD Our Protector
A song of ascents.1 I raise my eyes toward the mountains.
Where will my help come from? (A)
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth. (B)
3 He will not allow your foot to slip;
your Protector will not slumber. (C)
4 Indeed, the Protector of Israel
does not slumber or sleep. (D)
6 The sun will not strike you by day,
or the moon by night. (F)
7 The LORD will protect you from all harm;
He will protect your life. (G)
both now and forever.
