Each year, I try to apply a new verse that I will stand upon and agree with for the year. I also accompany that with a word. These two items are not just cute sayings for me; they are what pull me through during the times when I’m doubting God or don’t understand what is going on in my life. They’re what I have chosen to cling to as the personal words to me from my sweet Daddy. Last year, my word was “expectant” and my verse was Psalm 37:3-5. This year, my verse is Hebrews 11:6 and my word is faith.
6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
What I have found cool about each year I’ve picked a verse, somewhere or someone affirms that very same scripture and/or word not too long after.
Tonight at Deeply Rooted, the message was over Hebrews 1-(you guessed it)6. I was stoked! I had just chosen this scripture. It’s almost as if the Lord was saying, “Daughter, that’s a good one. Just wanted to let you know in a tangible way.”
What scripture are you standing on this year? What’s your word?
