Some of my favorite verses...

Well, as the title says, these are only SOME of my favorite verses.

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
(I like that one because of the song Michael Card did based on it.)

Esther 4:14
And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?
(I am not sure why I like this verse so much--maybe because I love Queen Esther so much.)

Psalms 56:4
In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
(The last part of it is so encouraging!)

Psalms 119:11
I have hidden your word in my heart so that I may not sin against you.
(Everyone has to have heard this one.)

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
(A lot of people like this one.)

Ecclesiastes 4:12
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
(Really speaks to you about having trustworthy and Christlike friends.)

Isaiah 40:29-31
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 43:1-2
Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine....When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Isaiah 45:3
I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
(This is very cool.)

Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
(This I love so much! It speaks volumes.)

Jeremiah 33:3
‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'
(This is God telling us to call to Him, and He will tell you things you wouldn't ever have known!)

Matthew 11:28
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Hebrews 11:1-3
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Hebrews 12:1-2
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

I could go on and on and on...but if I did that, no one would read this post because it is so long...So I guess I will go.

Whoa!

Ellie said...

I know...that's only about half of them.

Zoe said...

You know, I finally read over all those verses. Those are very incouraging verses. I keep seeing Jer. 29:11... like EVERYWHERE! It's kinda cool, because I have been praying about God's plans for my life a lot lately.

Ellie said...

Really? I have too! It is really exciting how so many of my favorite verses are popping up everywhere all of a sudden!

Zoe said...

That's neat!

Ellie said...

I know...especially when you are super frustrated, like I am now.

Skylar said...

Cool verses. I should remember to come to you for verses!

Ellie said...

LOL. Actually, a lot of them are pretty depressing, and I have them on the document for when I use verses at the beginning of my book and need something to communicate despair and stuff. But a lot of them are some of my favorites.

Zoe said...

I have some verses to post when I get the chance...

Ellie said...

LOL! I think I will post--but I have to think of what first.

Zoe said...

Cool! Someone needs to!
