My Mess, His Message

Scripture

Our Heavenly Father makes promises and reveals truths to us through His word and I often find myself desiring to pray His words back to Him.  These are a few verses that I cling to that have really spoken to my heart.  May they be a blessing to you as well.

Comfort

…He comforts us in all our afflictions, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves received from God…  2 Corinthians 1:3-5

I will turn their mourning into joy. I will comfort them and exchange their sorrows for rejoicing.  (Jeremiah 31:13)

(His) Faithfulness

I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak.  (Ezekiel 34:16)

The Lord, the King of Israel, is with you; never again will you fear any harm…. The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.  (Zephaniah 3:15, 17)

The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”  (Acts 10:15)

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” (Deuteronomy 31:8)

Forgiveness

Make allowances for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you.  Remember, The Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.  (Colossians 3:13)

Plan and Purpose

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares The Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come to pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”  Jeremiah 29:11-13

We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.  (Romans 8:28)

Long before [God] laid down the earth’s foundations, He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of His love, to be made whole and holy by His love.  (Ephesians 1:4)

Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; You formed me in my mother’s womb.  I thank you, High God – you’re breathtaking!  Body and soul, I am marvelously made!  I worship in adoration – what a creation!  You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before You, the days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.  (Psalm 139:13-16)

Restoration

I [God] will restore the years that the swarming locust has eaten…  Joel 2:25

They overcome him by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus), and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink away for death.  Revelation 12:11

 Salvation and Renewal

…if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!  (2 Corinthians 5:17)

…you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all of your filthiness…I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone… give you a heart of flesh. I will put my Spirit within you…you will be my people…  (Ezekiel 36:25-28)

 …you did not receive a spirit of slavery… you received the Spirit of adoption… we are God’s children… also heirs…  (Romans 8:14-17) 

Trust

Trust in The Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right path.  Proverbs 3:5-6

The Enemy/Deceiver

… He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him.  When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.  (John 8:44b)

Be sober! Be alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.  (1 Peter 5:8)
