Little Did I Know. . .

When I created the most recent Scripture Writing Schedule 2.4, it was over a month ago and I had never heard of COVID19. I was going through some difficult times personally with the loss of my brother-in-law, and I came up with topics that encouraged me. The four topics are: Comfort, Hope, Strength, and Protection. I never dreamed how relevant and how fitting they are “for a time such as this.”

This past week, I’ve been writing the scriptures on “Comfort.” The memory verse which I wrote every day was Psalm 27:1, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?” Every day I was reminded that there is nothing to be afraid of – God’s got this. Other verses used were: “The Lord is nigh unto them that are a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:18-19) Notice, the Lord delivers him out of them ALL! “God is our refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1) In Deuteronomy 31:8, Moses told Joshua, “And the Lord, He it is that doth go before thee; He will be with thee; He will not fail thee neither forsake thee; fear not, neither be dismayed.” Jesus promised His disciples, “But the Comforter which is the Holy Ghost whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace, I leave with you, My peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:26-27)

If you are not currently copying God’s word every day – this is a good time to start! What better thing can you spend your “quarantine time” doing than studying God’s Word. Each day you copy a “memory verse” for the week and an additional correlating verse or two. It takes less than five minutes a day. My friends, I hope that you’ll join me and I hope that you have been comforted by God Word. Jesus said, “let not our hearts be troubled. . .” (John 14:1a) He is there for us. Simply blessed, Courtney
