Join me in reading through the Bible in One Year! We will follow a reading plan together and go beyond just reading the Bible, to studying it. We will post about the passage and learn from each other as we grow in our walk with the Lord.
Join me in the pursuit of discernment!
My dad asked me if I wanted to do his blog for him today, so I decided I would give it a go!
One verse that stood out to me was:
"They despise me and won't come near me, except to spit in my face." - Job 30:10
In my NLT bible, there's a cross next to this verse which points to a reference of Matthew 26:67, which reads:
Then they began to spit in Jesus' face and beat him with their fists. And some slapped him,
This made me think of another verse, John 15:18 which reads:
"If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first."
Jesus didn't deserve hatred, yet people still hated Him! This is something to remember when we feel hated, or even disliked.
trusted God and praised Him through all the problems in his life. When
Jesus was dying on the cross, He praised God. Do I praise God when
problems occur? Do I trust in His plan even though others laugh at me
help me to remember that I am Yours, and that You are on my side. Help
me to feel Your love around me everyday, and help me to trust in You,
even when I can't see where we're going. Amen
