Ladies let us prepare for Battle

I believe that it is essential to our spiritual nourishment that we hide God’s word in our hearts. The
word is our only weapon in the spiritual battles we face on a daily basis. I myself have not been abiding in the word like I should and have been encouraged by a follow blogger, Sarah, who does a Memory Verse meme every Wednesday on her sight. I want to encourage you to visit her today or soon and join in memorizing scripture.
Last weeks memory verse was 1 Thessalonians 5:16 “Rejoice always, pray with out ceasing, giving thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for your life.” It is truly amazing how God spoke directly to my heart through this verse. He is so good. Let me lead you to Psalm 1 for a little reflection on the importance of being in the word:
The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of waterthat yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;for the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.
This weeks memory verse is:
1 John 3: 18Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
I pray that the Lord will speak to us all with this verse and change us to become more like His Son. Grab your swords and begin preparing for the battle.
