Bible Verses of the Week

Proverbs and James

 
 
 
 
 
Planning for the Future

 

 

I used to consider myself to be a great planner - planning for the future weeks, months, years. I used to consider that to be one of my strong points. This month, God has taught me...

 

 

Proverbs 27:1

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.

 

 

James 4:13-14

Faithfulness

Consider the Life of Joseph

Faithfulness
 
 
God has called us to a life a faithfulness no matter what the situation. This morning, I was reading the story of Joseph as we see in Genesis 37-46. Joseph had many challenges – in his father’s house, in the pit, in slavery, in prison, leading Egypt. We know the end of the story, but he didn’t. He didn’t know the twists and turns ahead of him, but he was faithful to God in all the situations, and God used him in mighty ways to save a nation and bring glory to God.

Bible Verses of the Week

1 Peter 4 verses and commentary

 
 
 
 
 
1 Peter 4:1-2  Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,  that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

Rules

Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Respect
 
Everyone wants respect for who they are. 
 
However, the question today is…   Do you respect others?  Particularly, how do you respect God - His Name, His Book, and His Son?
 
I have a list of rules at the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy.  For the most part, people are respecting my rules.  However, the one that isn’t being followed is the most important – don’t use God’s name in vain. 
 

Bible Verse of the Week

Proverb

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. -Proverbs 3:5-6
 
So why do I read the Bible?  Why do I pray?  Why do I trust the Lord?
I can be so self deceived about the world, God, myself and many other things.  The Bible commands me not to trust in my deceitful heart but to trust in the Lord.  He can give me wisdom and guidance to guide my life far beyond what I'm capable of doing.  My prayer today is that God would direct my steps, all of them.

Bible Verses of the Week

Philippians 3

Philippians 3:7-9

But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith

 

Bible Passage of the Week

Psalm 19

 
 
 
 
 
Psalm 19

The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.
