My Favorite Bible Verses
|Here are some of my favorite Bible
verses. My "favorites" change from day to day, and from experience to
experience, because God's Word is always fresh and new. I hope you will share your
favorites, too. Perhaps you or the next reader will find peace and hope through reading
these precious scriptures. My greatest prayer, however, is that your trust is in the Lord
Jesus Christ as your one and only Savior! Do you know Him in this way? Your eternal
destiny depends upon your answer. If you have been searching here and there for
"answers," I can tell you where to find them! Truly, Jesus Christ is The
Answer--no matter what the question. And He loves you more than you can possibly imagine.
Would you like to know Him?

|I want to know Christ and the
power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like
him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Philippians 3:10, 11 (NIV)
Whom have I
in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
Whom have I
in Heaven but you?
|These verses are favorites of another Encourager friend of mine, Maggie Smith. She also likes to sing the Scripture, and sent the words to the chorus on the right.|
|Another dear Internet friend, Jennifer, would
like to share this verse:
GOD is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength
and my song; He also is become my salvation.
|Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalm 28:6, 7 (NIV)||
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That
whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea;
and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall
come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Rhonda Collins, who sings with The Redemption Messengers (URL doesn't seem to work lately) had a difficult time choosing <smile>, but selected this as her favorite verse.
I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
Psalm 4:8 (NIV)
|These are some of Christina's favorite verses:
have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry,"Abba, Father." (Romans 8:15)
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and
turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and
will heal their land. 2
Chronicles 7:13 (NIV)
|Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. Matthew 22:37 (NIV)|

|A favorite verse of Christopher McPhaul:||. . . Naked came I out
of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath
taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
Let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. . . . God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. . . . We love because he first loved us. . . . And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.
1 John 4:7-12, 16b, 19, 21. (NIV)
|Betsy Spiegel says she loves the "simplicity of the instructions" in this verse (I do, too):||He hath shewed thee, O man,
what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with thy God?
|Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:22 (NIV)|
|One of Beth's favorite verses is:|
|Be strong, banish fear and doubt. Remember the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9|
|It's also one of Jessica's favorites. Her version reads:|
|Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9 (NASB)|

|This is the
account of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he
walked with God. . . . Noah did everything just as God commanded him. Genesis 6:9, 22 (NIV)
By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. Hebrews 11:7 (NIV)
|The Lord is good, a
strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
the favorite verse submitted by
Vonda Van Ostrand.
if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him. And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
1 John 3:21-24 (NIV)
Jenn Cook shared this favorite verse:
|"For I know the plans I have for
you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to
give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will
listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NIV)
As important as reading God's Word is memorizing it. I know--OUCH!! Here's a simple plan developed for children (but we won't tell anyone if a grown-up uses it).
|The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. Psalm 145:8,9 (NIV)|

(A precious gift from a precious friend. Thanks, Gina!)
From earliest childhood, the dandelion has been a symbol of a child's love for his or her mother. They are so brightly yellow, and so abundant! Few mothers have missed the joy of receiving a limp bouquet of these plants, proudly presented with a big smile and the words, "I picked these just for you!" We consider them weeds, but I sometimes wonder if God didn't create them just for children to give to their mothers. . .
And how else could we know if we liked butter, if we couldn't have a dandelion held under our chin to see if there was a golden reflection? Then, after the blooming time is finished, these plants present spectacular round balls made of tiny "parachutes" that, when blown upon, spin gaily off to unknown destinations.
A weed--yes, I suppose so, as plants go. But I have found lessons in their persistence. There have been attempts through time to eradicate Christianity--but it keeps springing up. It is unwelcome in many areas of the world today, where those who are misled by the evil one try to "mow it down" or "dig it out." But it is impossible to do this. God is in control of the world today as He as always been. And when our time on earth is over, those who have been God's "dandelions," beautiful only to those with childlike hearts, will receive a touch of God's breath, and float away to be with Him forever.

Would you like to read stories from a children's book written many years ago by my great-aunt Georgia Elliott? They are not always "politically correct," but they consistently point to Jesus in a simple and beautiful manner. Here is my "Tribute to Aunt Georgie."
