My beloved Pastor Dan Wermuth of Joplin Family Worship Center shared his with our congregation a few months ago: “So he answered me and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6 This verse filters how he looks at the world and influences his actions. It’s been quite a powerful verse as he leads our church and volunteers from across the country in the Joplin tornado relief efforts.
I thank God for my life verses. He gave them to me several years ago. I am given to anxiety if I don’t ask the Holy Spirt to guard my thoughts. Bills, extended illness, pain, homeschooling, family tension, a wayward child, all can add to anxiety. I have to remind myself to be anxious for NO THING. You can read about my experience with this verse here.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Now that’s a verse to mark in your Bible! For that matter, the whole fourth chapter of Philippians is a great place to camp out until you have its truths deep in your heart and mind.
Think about it, search the Lord and His Word. Ask your Father what your life verse is. He loves it when we seek Him. “Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart.” Psalm 119:1-3
Just something to think about….
