The Bible can encourage your heart and empower your life. What verses inspire you to overcome challenges and triumph over the world? Every Christian should know these powerful Bible verses about victory.
Our God is victorious. He always wins. He has never lost a battle. He has no equal to challenge His sovereignty.
Although we know this truth by the fact of history and the choice of faith, our experience in this life can make it seem like we are losing at times. Our limited perspective can create doubt and discouragement.
Allow me to encourage you in the Lord. If you are born again, you are on the winning side! God has revealed the last chapter of history. There is no doubt of how the future will end. God and His people are victorious!
Every Christian should have a close working relationship with his Bible. These tools will help unlock God’s Word as you study it.
2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
I heard an aged preacher remark, “Today, preachers talk about reading the Bible. In the old days, we were taught to study it. We need to get back to Bible study.”
How many times have you heard someone say, “I tried to read the Bible, but couldn’t understand it?” Reading the Bible is profitable, but it is meant to be studied.
You have to read your Bible in order to study it. Perhaps we aim to low when we ask people to simply read the Bible. Let’s get back to encouraging people to study the Bible!
Once you decide to study God’s Word, you must choose some tools to help you.
Use this simple downloadable chart to track your Bible reading.
Daily Bible reading is an essential activity for every Christian. Your progress should be tracked and recorded. There are many ways to accomplish this, but for most people, a simple chart is enough.
This resource is a chart instead of a schedule. A Bible reading schedule will tell you what chapters to read on specific days. I have used many of them over the years.
In contrast, this Bible Reading Chart simply gives you the chapters of the Bible with no schedule or reading recommendations. You can read on your own schedule and mark off the chapters you have read.
It is designed for 8.5″ x 11″ paper. It can be folded in half to fit inside your Bible.
“The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: and a good report maketh the bones fat.”
Those of us that have studied the Bible for many years have learned to trust its truthfulness without question. Gone are the days of constant doubt and wondering what parts of the Bible can be trusted. I have found it to be true by study and experience.
The Bible bears any scrutiny. It is the inspired and preserved Word of God. I am amazed at how many times throughout history the Bible has been challenged only to be proven right in measurable areas such as history, archeology and science. What an amazing book!
The verse mentioned above has brought a smile to my face many times. I know a body can be fat, but can bones be fat? At times in my life my fluctuating weight has made me wonder if I might be the poster child for fat bones!
I have never doubted that the Bible is correct in this verse. But I confess I did not understand the analogy. We all know the immediate benefits of good news. It certainly has physical and mental blessings. However, today as I was studying for a message, I learned an interesting fact. One of the purposes of human bones is fat storage. Yes, you read that right. We all know that bones contain red marrow that produces blood cells. Yet I learned today that bones also contain yellow marrow. This yellow bone marrow stores fat. The yellow bone marrow can become red marrow to help in blood cell production in the event of a great loss of blood or anemia.
Thousands of years before fancy microscopes and expensive tests God told us this medical fact!
Once again, the Bible amazes me! God is good to give us His written Word.
Read it today and be amazed.
