Scripture Sunday (21)

Scripture Sunday is a weekly quote-post to highlight Bible passages I’ve read recently that I found particularly interesting. My translation is the New International Version.

From my reading this week:

In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth,
    and the heavens are the work of your hands.
They will perish, but you remain;
    they will all wear out like a garment.
Like clothing you will change them
    and they will be discarded.
But you remain the same,
    and your years will never end.
The children of your servants will live in your presence;
    their descendants will be established before you.”

-Psalms 102:25-28

 

Why I chose it:

God is awesome!

Scripture Sunday (20)

Scripture Sunday is a weekly quote-post to highlight Bible passages I’ve read recently that I found particularly interesting. My translation is the New International Version.

From my reading this week:

When David and his men reached Ziklag, they found it destroyed by fire and their wives and sons and daughters taken captive. So David and his men wept aloud until they had no strength left to weep. David’s two wives had been captured—Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail, the widow of Nabal of Carmel. David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God.

-1 Samuel 30:3-6

and

But I trust in you, O Lord;

I say, “You are my God.”

My times are in your hands;

deliver me from my enemies

and from those who pursue me.

-Psalm 31:14-15

Why I chose these:

My times= my personal life, local events, nation events, world events.

Most of the time I’m not going to face anything close to being stoned (with actual stones, not drugs, I mean). I need to trust God in spite of my circumstances because “my times” are in His hands.
