I was reading a blog recently where the writer talked about her verse for the year. I have heard of this before and have focused on it some myself in past years, but it has been awhile. I usually have study topics for the year. I think that this year I will return to the verse. Yesterday the Lord gave me a verse that I have heard many times and quoted myself. Yesterday, I saw it in a way I haven’t seen before.
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. ~2 Chronicles 16:9a
It is an amazing thought to realize that the Lord wants to show Himself strong on my behalf. My goal for meditating on this verse this year is to look for the ways that the Lord shows Himself strong on my behalf. So many times I miss it because of self-pity or self-reliance. I do not want that to be the case this year.
The first area that I am asking the Lord to show Himself strong is in my language study. I started my third semester today and I am already lost! But I know that faithful is He that calleth me who also will do it!
