When it comes to meaningful Scripture, there is no right or wrong answer as to which verses are more meaningful than others. Just as each individual has different experiences and struggles that mold what they hold most dear in Scripture, verses can often elicit different feelings for each who connects with them. Motivational and Bible speaker Amber Lappin offers her take on the 10 Bible verses that can help to grow your faith.
10 Bible Verses For Growing In Faith
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
I memorized this one as a young mommy. Often, when you look at your children, you worry that you’re doing it ‘wrong.’ You don’t see the results of the work you put in, and you start to think that it’s too hard. I would repeat it to myself over and over (and sometimes still do!) when I felt like giving up.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.
This verse reminds me that it’s okay to voice my complaint, but it should be done appropriately. Memorizing this verse allows it to be right at the ready when needed.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
This one was important for me to memorize. Just knowing that I can take my heavy, weary soul to God and lean on Him to give me rest is so comforting, and empowering! When I am trying to do everything on my own, when I am so tired, when I just need a break, I remember this verse, take a deep breath, and then read my Bible and pray.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
It’s easy to lose track of what and when things need to be done. It’s hard to prioritize, and sometimes I feel like I’m in over my head. And then, I remember this Scripture. I need to seek God first, for me, that means a quiet time at the beginning of every day, which includes prayer and Scripture, and a time to ask God what His priorities are for the day. It means checking in with him at various times throughout the day, too. When I do that first, I rarely run off the rails. I’m able to keep a balance, and make decisions that honor Him and the commitments I have made.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
I use my 25 years’ experience in the Early Childhood field, the principles I’ve learned studying human development, and my many years of service in ministry to help make the Scriptures a little clearer, and show how we can apply them to everyday life.
