Do You Have A Life Verse? December 4, 2019


Recently God has used a Bible verse in my life in such a profound way that I have chosen it as my “second half verse.” Along the journey there have been hundreds of Scriptures that have given me definite comfort, rebuke, instruction, and guidance. But there have been four verses that I have adopted as my own at different seasons of life.

Tomorrow on “Enjoying The Journey” we begin a very brief series that means a great deal to me personally. There are only seven episodes in this series and I hope that you will join us for each of them. One word from God’s Word can change your life forever! Ask the Lord to impress a definite Scripture on your heart today…a verse to memorize, to meditate on, and to make a part of your life.

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.

    From a youth, Philippians 3:10 has been my life verse — “That I may know Him,….”.

    For several years now — closer to my death than to my birth — Psalm.71:17-18 has been added as a second life verse.

      Both powerful passages…at every season of life! God bless you.

    I close all of my correspondence with this verse: Isaiah 57:15 “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

    How humbling it is to me that a holy God, the God of the universe who is Lord of all, would seek to visit mankind. But this is also a challenge to me personally – there is a requirement on my part in spirit. However, conformity to the requirement will yield revival living in my life. Only through Christ can this be accomplished.

    God has brought me to this Scripture time and again as I seek to live for Him.

    My life verse is I Samuel 12:24, “Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.”

    There are other verses, no doubt, that God has used to teach me and draw me closer to Himself. This verse, however, is the one I try to grow into. To live first within the fear of the LORD. For as we know, the fear of the highest removes all lesser fears. Secondly, I want to serve Him with all my heart, but the “in truth” part is so important to me. I want to serve God in ways that are true to Scripture, but also to do it in a truthful heart; without hypocrisy. Lastly, remembering all that he has done for me in salvation and since salvation will help me to serve Him with gratitude and love.

    There is a lot here to unpack. A careful consideration of this passage as both standalone and within its context provides muchto draw from. It truly is a verse to grow into.
