Some of my favorite Bible verses

I started doing my devotions daily at the beginning of this fall, and have been loving it! I will share some verses that really like and what I have learned from them. (The translation of Bible: NLT)

1 Peter 1:3
"All honor to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for it is by his boundless mercy that God has given us the privilege of being born again." - God is so merciful! I am so blessed to be his child.

1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18

"16Always be joyful. 17 Keep on praying. 18No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus." -These are great things that I need to live out. I should be always joyful, always praying, and always thankful. Aren't those great things to be?!

Ephesians 3:12
"Because of Christ and our faith in
him, we can now come fearlessly into God's presence, assured of his glad welcome." - It's great to know that I don't have to be afraid that God will reject me...he will always welcome me with great joy! It's awesome!

Isaiah 58: 11

"The Lord will guide you continually, watering your life when you are dry and keeping you healthy, too." - I can go to God for replenishment and he will fill me up.

Psalm 46:1
"God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble." - God is my refuge, my place to go in times of trouble.

God has taught me a lot through his Word. I am so happy that I have the Bible as my guide in life!
