So there are a million challenges going on simultaneously in our world today. There’s the Ice Bucket challenge, 20 things about you (obviously resurrected because I know there was something like this some time in 2009), and tons of others. There’s also the favorite scripture challenge, and my friend Francesca (I have to stop blogging about this girl, haba) nominated me to put up my favorite ones. I decided to put them up (did that on Facebook) but I also decided to open it up to my Christian audience.

What is your favorite scripture? What are your favorite scriptures? What speaks to you? What gets you out of difficult situations?

While you think of it, here’s what I put up…

Here’s accepting Francesca Onomarie Uriri‘s challenge to put up my favorite Bible verses. Ok, so some of them are not complete verses but I’ll do a bit of a context for each of them…

Here goes!

Titus 1 vs 2 – “God who cannot lie” Not like He won’t lie, He can’t. Even if He wanted to, this is the one thing He cannot do. This scripture for me is what gives the entire Bible the legs it stands on. It is such a comfort on days when I feel blue!

Psalm 107: 20 – “He sent His word and delivered them out of their destruction” – Sometimes, we dey take our hands find trouble (can I hear an amen) but God’s word rescues/snatches/delivers us. Super grateful. Super super grateful!

Joshua 1: 8 – “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success” – ‘this book of the law’ for me refers to whatever my hands find to do per time. The only one who can negate the promises of God concerning a person is? That person. So if the book of (whatever law – school, work, the Bible, whatever) departs from your mouth, and you don’t meditate (work at it, devote productive hours to it), you will not make your way prosperous, and you will not have good success.

Selah (said in the voice of my Pastor, The Rev Goodheart Obi Ekwueme).

So, who to nominate? My sisters – TokesRajiAdaora, Nike, go for it!

Over to you people, share yours!

    My favorite scripture is ‘The letter kills and the Spirit gives life’.

    I got this scripture from the year 2002, I had gotten born again in March of the year 2001. I got baptized in the Holy Ghost in 2001 September. One morning I woke up muttering these words and I hadn’t ever read it in the bible. I just assumed it was something the Holy Spirit wanted to note so I wrote a date beside the scriptures and anytime I had difficulties, I came back to it. It has been a source of comfort and encouragement to me that God knows me personally. I am not just one of his thousands of children who occupy his church pews. He knows my name and that just fills me with love and gives me a reason to live a life of purpose and know in my heart that things, it can only get better.

    Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the Grace that could be theirs… Jonah 2:8…

    Heard it (in the NIV) in a message at a time when I was in the dumps over certain milestones I had hoped to achieve but hadn’t at the time, and was contemplating taking matters into my hands to speed things up.. Everytime I read or hear it, it reminds me of that time and how things improved significantly upon learning to lean again…

What’s your favorite scripture? Why? […]
