Soul Secure Winning Over Worry Bible Reading Summary Week 2

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?

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.

 

Colossians 3:12-17

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

Psalm 55:9-19

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

Romans 8:28-39

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.

Psalm 17:1-8

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

Psalm 16:1-8

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

    Can you describe a little more fully what your friend told you about beginning her day focusing on listening to God first instead of beginning her conversation with the Lord issuing her own agenda. I’m not sure what or how she accomplishes this. Be still and know. Meditate on God and who He is?

    1. Hi Kary! I’ve been thinking about her words a lot since she said them to me. She is off on a trip to Israel, but I plan to have a conversation with her when she returns. We’ll be talking more about this on the blog in the near future!!

  2. Thanks for these encouraging words. I am going thru a storm. And I am leaning to our it all in God’s hands and trust Him, and rest in Him.
    I was hurt at work and fired because I was off on disability too long for them. Now I need surgery and I have no income coming in.
    But as I read these bible verses from you I am learning to trust His plan.
    As I pray He has given me a verse .. one verse in many ways.
    Ps. 46:10 Be still. And know I am God….
    I am so thankful that He is here
    Jean

    1. Bless you, Jean, yes, God has a plan!! Praying for his mercy and grace to surround you right now.

    Thank you for your website and postings. We truly live in very difficult and dangerous times. I hope you realize how precious your gift is to others. Like me, going through such darkness right now. My heart is broken and my soul reaches out to God in despair and hopelessness. He is my only hope, there’s no one else. Why does He seem to be silent? Waiting is so hard, it tries every virtue to keep to the “straight and narrow path”. Times come when you want to give up in overwhelming obstacles and hopelessness. Thank you for your precious reminders of faith, and hope and love of our Lord. Please keep up the good work and may you and your family be ever blessed for this ministry. He is faithful, I know He fights our battles alongside us, most specially in our darkest hours. Thank you and have a blessed day.

    1. Oh I Amen everything you have said. I’m working on the July Bible reading challenge final touches today. And the theme? Purposeful Pause: Waiting on God’s Perfect Timing. Blessings to you, Alita. Thank you for your gracious words.

    My Dear Sister in Christ, I thank you for taking the time to be a great vessel for God to many of us who suffer and struggle to keep worry and anxiety at bay! Yet I am guilty for not relying on His Word to strengthen me. I’m at a place in my life where I’m at my lowest physically, mentally and spiritually and I am here to thank you for helping me to remember who and where my strength comes from! May I ask for your prayers? Being disabled and alone I have now come to a Dark Night of my Soul and Senses where God seems so far away and silent. Thank you Rachel for helping spread His Grace and Mercy to so many others, thank you!!!
    Many Blessings,
    Sally Hahn

    1. His Word is so very precious. Stick with it, Sally Jo. I was asked over the weekend “How do you do it?” And it’s a simple reply. Each day when my eyes open, I thank God for another day and tell him I can’t live without his guidance. I need him every step of the way. And then I dig into his word. Bless you in your circumstances. I know he sees, he knows, and he cares.
