Top Ten Bible Verses

Top Ten: Bible Verses

Excerpt: Habakkuk 3:17-19 -Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.

Top Ten Tuesday – Bible Verse – Genesis

Excerpt: “Rebekah didn’t know Isaac. She didn’t know the servant who was taking her to her new husband. But she heard how God had chosen her, and she was not afraid to allow God to use her. She willing chose to go. To leave her family, her home, her life… She chose to go. 

Top Ten Tuesday – Bible Verses- Exodus

Excerpt – “You can’t move. The pain is too great. The roar of battle is all around, but the shadow that falls on you assures you that He is still standing. You’ve tried your best. You fought as hard as you could. But you couldn’t do it yourself, and eventually, you fell. But as you fell, a shadow covered you and boots landed beside you. You saw the sun glisten of the shield and the reflection of deep blue eyes as He held the sword in your defense. With a cry that screams His love for you, He fights. He fights for you, even when you can’t. “

Top Ten Tuesday – Bible Verses- Leviticus & Numbers

Excerpt – “While Leviticus is full of lots of rules, Numbers follows with lots of great promises and blessings! 
Something that is really cool to do is read Leviticus and Hebrews at the same time, and see all the fulfilments of the Mosaic law, and the why and how of why we don’t have to follow many of the rules from it anymore. 

Top Ten Tuesday – Bible Verses- Deuteronomy

Excerpt – “This is a cool verse because it reminds us that we are not supposed to ever be content with where we are spiritually. We should never get to a place where we say “I think this is far enough, let’s stop here.” A quote phrase I really love is Never Pitch Your Tent. Never settle for good. Always strive for better. If you have been settling in a “good” place, realize that there is better up ahead. You’ve stayed long enough. Begin your journey again. 

I also love how this verse talks about the Bible. It says “you shall meditate on it day and night.” When you wake up in the middle of the night, what do you think about? I usually start making up a story in my mind to help me fall back to sleep (#writersbrain). But this says to meditate on the Bible at night. So what if….

Ruth is one of the only two women in the Bible that actually get a whole book based just on their story! Her story shouldn’t be taken lightly!

In chapter one we read about a famine in Israel. Elimelech and his wife and two sons flee to Moab. Instead of relying on God’s provision, he takes things into his own hands and runs off to a foreign land. Here the sons find wives, and then both of them, and Elimelech die. And just like that Naomi is left a widow and a refugee, far from home. She returns to her home, proclaiming that she is now to be called “Mara” which means bitter. She feels alone and distraught. She says that God has brought her back empty, that God has delt bitterly with her. I would imagine she is also struggling with feeling bitter towards God.

But there is something beautiful that happens is chapter one, and this is were our first verse comes in!

This the God’s promise to David. David loved the Lord so much and he wanted to build a temple for him to dwell in. God promises that he will raise up a son from David who will build the house. David’s son Solomon builds a house for the Lord years later. God made Solomon the wiseman on earth. Yet, Solomon, like all of us, sinned. He committed iniquity and made grave mistakes. And he was punished for it. But God says, I will punish him, but MY STEADFAST LOVE WILL NOT DEPART FORM HIM...
