The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him, but his great anger is against all who
forsake him. So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer.
“But as for you, continue in what you have
learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you
learned it, and
how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able
to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking,
correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be
thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
II Timothy 3:14-17
our enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost
their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with
the help of our God.”

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes."
- Ephesians 6:10-11
Test on Thursday, October 10th
" As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is
with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the
places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness."
This verse is a beautiful promise. Even when we are broken, in exhile, and even running from God He still promises to rescue us and return us unto him.
Test will be on Wednesday the 11th.
"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."
We have been discussing the powerful truths contained within these verses for the past week, and will have our test over the words (memory) and content (application) on Friday (Aug. 30th).
Next Tuesday (May 21st) will be our end of the year cumulative scripture memory test. The test will be over the following verses:
James 1:5 - I John 4:9-11 - Luke 24:27 - Matthew 16:15-16 - Romans 5:1-2 - Matthew 28:19-20
Each of these verses will be followed by the following two question:
1. What great truths are contained within this verse(s)?
2. How could you use this verse(s) in a conversation to either witness to, comfort, or encourage someone?
These are some powerful verses to have in your spiritual arsenal, and will serve to sharpen our understanding of God and who He is. Oh how good it is to have our minds dwell upon the living word
"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God."
These verses are directly linked to our morning discussions on the foundations of our faith.
