Have you hugged your Bible lately? We should be hugging it every day as we have devotionals – but I get it… life gets busy. The year is young, so isn’t this the perfect time to get back in the swing – the habit – of daily devotionals with the LORD? He’s so patient with us, isn’t He?
Since this is National Bible Week, I thought a few passages of Scripture for this new year may be appropriate. Here we go!
May the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ be blessed! On account of his vast mercy, he has given us new birth. You have been born anew into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. – 1 Peter 1:3
Don’t remember the prior things; don’t ponder ancient history. Look! I’m doing a new thing; now it sprouts up; don’t you recognize it? I’m making a way in the desert, paths in the wilderness. – Isaiah 43:18-19
I believe that the present suffering is nothing compared to the coming glory that is going to be revealed to us. – Romans 8:38
Certainly the faithful love of the Lord hasn’t ended; certainly God’s compassion isn’t through! They are renewed every morning. Great is your faithfulness. – Lamentations 3:22-23
Then the one seated on the throne said, “Look! I’m making all things new.” He also said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” – Revelation 21:5
Look among the nations and watch! Be astonished and stare because something is happening in your days that you wouldn’t believe even if told. – Habakkuk 1:5
Sing to the Lord a new song because he has done wonderful things! His own strong hand and his own holy arm have won the victory! – Psalm 98:1
I will give them a single heart, and I will put a new spirit in them. I will remove the stony hearts from their bodies and give them hearts of flesh. – Ezekiel 11:19
May God richly bless you as you study His Word in 2016! 🙂
