Encouraged by the Word

I was greatly encouraged by the Word of God recently. A good friend of mine wrote me an encouraging email -- the best kind -- the kind that included her favorite scripture. The words of a friend can bring such joy to my heart, but the Word of God can change my life. Then another friend reminded me of the importance of scripture memory. I've decided it's been much too long since I've memorized a scripture passage. Then just this morning I listened to another great teaching by Beth Moore called "Crossing Our River of Fear." She encouraged her listeners to memorize Hab 3:19 in the Amplified Version. I think this is just the scripture I need to learn.

Hab 3:19
The Lord God is my strength, my personal bravery and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds' feet, and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering or responsibility]!

These are precious words I needed to hear this day. Now to commit them to memory so I'll have them with me all the days of my life!

Want to join me? You'll never regret putting God's Word in your heart.
