"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." ~ from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

7. Isaiah 53:6

this
definitely shows "sheep astray"

The title for this verse in the book is:

"God's Remedy for Man's Sin"

I wonder if this is how God sees us, wandering and wondering
along life's narrow way

Don Moen
This is how I memorized this one by singing with Don Moen and loving it!

OVER and OVER

"O Lord, Show us Your mercy and grace! ... Forgive our sins and heal our land. We long to live in Your Presence once again." Forgive us for going astray so often like these sheep. Forgive us for turning our own way or thinking we can do Your will our way. Thank You Jesus for being Our Shepherd and taking all our iniquity of sin and nailing it to the Cross!

WORD ON WEDNESDAY

52 SCRIPTURE VERSES 
EVERY BELIEVER SHOULD KNOW


"Anyone who has been raised in a family environment has his or her own share of family secrets. These little tidbits of reality are usually best kept within the small circle of family. For some, these family secrets are dark and hidden in the recesses of the mind. For most of us, these secrets are light, spontaneous, perhaps a bit embarrassing, and often downright funny."
"Did you know that those of us who have been born into God’s family also have a family secret? There is something that we know that those who are not part of God’s forever family do not know. Our family secret is found in our verse for this week, Romans 8:28. On numerous occasions along my own Christian pilgrimage, I have climbed up on top of this verse and found refuge and hope in times of confusion or need. There are four factors related to "the family secret" that every believer should know." ... O.S.Hillman (just part of this, click on the title below to continue reading at Bible Gateway)

The Scripture Verses 
{thus far for 2014}

1. Genesis 1:1
3. Ephesians 2: 8
4. Psalm 23:1

The one from last week is one most of us know and so will 

this week

as we're
Memorizing and Meditating 
on 

5. Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."
The title for this verse in the book is:

"The Family Secret"

we read that 
the Family Secret is:
  1. Confidential
  2. Constructive
  3. Comprehensive
  4. Conditional
and might I add
COMPLETE
through
Jesus Christ


[image credit:wallpapers4god]

And we each have been called

And we each have a God purpose for our life
SO

we know that in all things

GOD WORKS FOR THE GOOD

of those who love Him
IF

you love Him

you will follow that purpose and call


* I am so glad that I found these available at Bible Gateway and you can sign up and get them emailed to you too. The problem is that it is only for 10 of the 52. Here I was all excited about sharing this and then they are just 10 samplings. You can go to Newsletters page and then Joshua Code is under the Exploring the Bible section.

WORD ON WEDNESDAY

I came upon this book "The Joshua Code" with 52 Scripture verses that every believer should know and this will be my focus for  my "WORD ON WEDS.", one for each week (hopefully it will be like the old "Word Filled Weds") or maybe not, because I just want to add that I really do love what Internet Cafe Devotions is doing by "praying the Word" as they changed WFW to add {See and Pray} to incorporate and take us beyond the Word and an image to sharing the Word in Prayer, which I really like! So we'll see ... as we memorize and meditate with

by O.S.Hawkins

The Scripture Verses 
{thus far for 2014}

1. Genesis 1: 1
2. John 3: 16
3. Ephesians 2: 8 

This week
"A Psalm for the Ages"

Memorizing and Meditating 
on
4. Psalm 23:1

(there are more verses from this Psalm later)

"The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. "(NIV)(NET)
"The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need." (NLT)
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want." (NASB) (ESV)
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want." (KJV)

BIBLE HUB to see various versions and commentaries on Psalm 23:1 and you can choose whichever one you are comfortable with ... or read them all and expand your understanding. I like Bible Gateway (but currently cannot scroll through the versions and I end up with some language I don't understand) ... so I can see other Bible versions like the Amplified or The Message ... which say respectively:

"The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], 
I shall not lack."

"God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing."

Promise #46: Psalm 23:1


This one is recorded already in my memory through a song I learned as a child. I love memorizing scripture through songs. I find this to be a helpful way to learn. I could not find the song I sing but here is a wonderful one with Keith Green ... and of course, this lines up and goes with the direction God took me last week when I wrote "FAITHFUL LOST SHEEP" and one that I shared last year twice with links to Roy Lessin from "Meet Me in the Meadow" Ps. 23. Isn't that what we HOPE? To meet and be with Our Shepherd "in the meadow" ... in the valley, on the mountaintops, wherever our life journey takes us, may we go with Him, with Jesus as Our Shepherd.



Joshua 1:8 says, 

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.




* I found a church that is sharing these online weekly as well, no content like the book does, just the verse for Memorization and Meditation. If I do not yet have the verse memorized, I will be doing that and if I have the verse memorized already, I will be meditating on the Scripture Verse throughout the week. I guess this was a 2013 phenomenon, so again I'm behind on this.

*** what a bummer that the image does not show in Google Chrome, maybe it does in Firefox or IE but here's the link to the specific one. That was the whole point of sharing WOW with the Joshua Code!
