Welcome to the weekly Bible reading summary! If you’ve been here before, then you know that I try to post this weekly wrap-up for the monthly Bible reading challenge on Fridays, but sometimes grace wins and the post lands on Monday. Yesterday, a friend of mine asked, “So what are you doing for your daily Bible reading right now?” We chatted for a minute about the monthly Bible reading plan. Then she mentioned that during her prayer time, instead of beginning her conversation with the Lord issuing her own agenda, she has been focusing on listening to God first. Interesting concept, isn’t it? I’ve been thinking it over since she said it and wanted to share it with you. Let’s check out the Soul Secure: Winning Over Worry Bible reading summary week 2, ready?
1 Corinthians 10:9-13
What encouragement to know that God is not going to give us burdens beyond what we are able to bear because HE is our strength. Verse 13 gives me so much hope:
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
It’s impossible to worry in the name of Jesus, isn’t it? Because we ether trust God or we don’t. We either believe God or we don’t. We either let the peace of God rule our hearts or we don’t. Preaching to my own heart today. Have a super Sunday free from worry, doubt or fear! #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan #winningoverworry #biblereading
When worry is the battle, the enemies are many. The arsenal is varied and it’s easy to grow weary with worry. But the Redeemer! God has provided a weapon like no other to ward off anxiety. “Prayer trumps panic. Every. Time.” – One More Step . Run to the Redeemer this morning. Casting all your cares on him because he cares for you. #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan #winningoverworry #biblereading
Waiting on an answer? Psalm 40. Fretting or worried? Psalm 40. Anxious and stressed? Psalm 40. Struggling with temptation? Psalm 40. (I colored this on the mountain Saturday morning. What a blessing to spend that time winding down, yet being lifted up!) #inspirebible #biblejournaling #journalingbiblecommunity #journalingbible
More than conquerors. I’ve heard folks say that they just can’t stop worrying. They can’t help fearful thoughts. They just can’t find victory over doubt, yet Paul tells us in today’s #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan that we are more than conquerors over tribulation, persecution, lack of food, lack of clothing, and even death. Claiming victory in Jesus over worry today! Join me? #biblereading
Worry is often a “hidden” sin. No one but you and God know that you are worried until the extra wrinkles show up. But I’m learning every day to how to hide in his wings in place of hiding in worry. Lord, make it a day we know that we are protected and covered by you. Have a wonderful Wednesday! #winningoverworry #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan #biblereading (It is Wednesday, right?) 😀
2 Timothy 1:1-7
The problem with worry is that it escalates so quickly, doesn’t it? One thought leads to another and that leads to another. Without intention, worry can overtake me faster than the blink of an eye. This morning I’m asking myself one question after reading today’s passage. What flame am I fanning? #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan #biblereading #winningoverworry
Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. Psalm 16:19 Once worry slips in your heart and mind, the enemy does his best to move it into anxiety and panic. “Shaken” is a word that describes that feeling so well. World news shakes us. Politics shake us. Disease shakes us. Divorce shakes us. Destruction shakes us. Oh but there is no reason to be shaken!! Your God, my God, is at our right hand. We have the power to rejoice and be glad, no matter the circumstances, because our souls live securely!! Happy Friday! #soulsecurejournal #biblereadingplan #biblereading #winningoverworry
By his grace,
