I love the word of God. I have learned to ask the Lord to write it on my heart as I read it so that I never forget it. I don’t always have my Bible with me, but I do my heart 🙂 . I love it when Holy Spirit brings to remembrance the word of God stored within me at just the right time!
Thank God that with the help of Holy Spirit you and I can commit to memory more than ten scriptures. But for the sake of time, here are ten scriptures that I believe are worth remembering and the reasons why.
1. Romans 8:1 –So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. (NLT)
Thank God for Romans 8:1! Knowing that Father God does not scold his children for sin(s), makes it easier to run to him, confess sin(s), ask for forgiveness and receive freedom.
2. Romans 8:28—And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. (NLT)
Life sometimes unfolds opposite the way hoped for, prayed for, and dreamed of. Still, God has a plan and Romans 8: 28 is a reminder of that. Whatever the “all things” in your life, God is causing them to work together for your good. Believe that, because it true.
3. Ephesians 6:12—For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms. (NLT)
Satan and demons do exist. Not acknowledging this truth will not change it. In actually, the sooner you realize your real enemies do not have flesh the better off you’ll be.
4. Colossians 3:1-2—Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits at God’s right hand in the place of honor and power. Let heaven fill your thoughts. Do not think only about the things down here on earth. (NLT)
Heaven is for real! For you who believe in Jesus, Planet Earth is not your final destination. I know you’re glad! It’s reason enough for excitement!
5. Mathew 5:15-16—You are the light of the world—like a city on the mountain, glowing in the night for all to see. Don’t hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all. (NLT)
Christ has freed you from sin, not for you to hide, but for you to shine brightly. Don’t hide God’s goodness in your life. Shout it from the rooftops! Testify!
6. Mathew 6:32-33—…your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and will give you all you need from day-to-day if you live for him and make the kingdom of God your primary concern. (NLT)
Stop worrying about your needs for today and tomorrow. Consider the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for the flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won’t he more surely care for you? (Mathew 6:28-29 NTL)
7. James 1:5—If you need wisdom—if you want to know what God wants you to do—ask him, he will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking. (NLT)
Need wisdom? Need direction? Talk to God. He has all the answers.
8. 1st Corinthians 16:14—And everything you do must be done with love. (NLT)
Motive. What’s yours? It’s good to keep a current status of the motive(s) behind acts and deeds. If the motive isn’t love, it’s probably not from above.
9. 1st John 4:10—This is real love. It is not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. (NLT)
There is no greater loved direct at you today then the love of God. For God so loves you that he gave his only son, and because you believe in his Son you will not perish. Instead, you will have everlasting life (John 3:16). Despite you, God deeply loves you. That’s deep.
10. John 14:6—Jesus told him “I am the way the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” (NLT)
There is no God like Jehovah and there is no God but Jehovah, and Jesus is the only way to Him. Do not be deceived. Test every spirit ( 1st john 4:1).
