I like this topic. I love hearing which Bible verses are important to other people. I find it very helpful and I often notice some verses I've not given as much thought to as maybe I should.

One of my favorites is:
Zechariah 4:10
"Do not despise the small beginnings for God is glad to see the work has been begun."

That hangs over my desk. I have it there to remind me that everyone has to start somewhere. As I am a writer, it encourages me to keep plugging away... no matter how discouraged I get from time to time. (About the time the rejection letters arrive!)

Do you all have some favorite verses you'd share with me???

[Smile] I have many favorites. One verse I always keep in mind is Romans 8:28- "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose".

[Razz] It helps me view everything that happens in a different light and gives me strength and hope no matter what situation I'm facing.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.

I live by it. There are many things of this world that I don't understand. Faith carries me and reminds me I don't have to be able to figure it all out. That's His job.

Oh that you would bless me indeed
and enlarge my territory
That your hand would be with me
That you would keep me from evil
That I would cause no pain

The Prayer of Jebez...my fav.

Hey Queenie:
That's another of my favorites! The Prayer of Jabez! (1 Chroncles 4:10.)
A small prayer that covers so much!!! [Smile]

I love all of the above words from the Bible! The Prayer of Jabez is particularly beautiful...

My two favorites are: Luke 12:31, "But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you," and Luke 11:9, "And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."

I particularly like the last one because how many times by asking, seeking and knocking, have I found answers to questions that troubled my mind..

Love this topic because the words of God provide such comfort and peace....

I just got a new large print Bible and was reading it and found this in Ecclesiastes 5:8,
Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Go to mlisten rather than to offer a sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong. Don't be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God.

As I read these I try to understand what they mean. I begin Bible study soon and am very excited to learn.

Chatty: [Smile] That's verses 1,2 of Ecclesiastes 5. Right after verse 1, my Bible references direct me to Hoseah 6:6-"I want your constant love, not your animal sacrifices. I would rather have my people know me than burn offerings to me" [Wink] .

After Ecclesiastes 5: 2, my Bible directs me to Proverbs 10:19-"The more you talk, [Razz] the more likely you are to sin. If you are wise, you will keep quiet".

Hope this helps!

My favorite is:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Unfortunately I can't remember where it is at the moment. [Roll Eyes]

Hi Maggie,

That is one of my favorites, too. It comes from Phillipians 4:13. Reading that phrase helps so much, doesn't it?
