Life Verses

My pastor used Philippians 4:13 during a sermon recently, mentioning that it was one of the most quoted verses from the Bible. 

I’m sure he’s correct.  In fact, for many, that verse is a favorite.

Phil 4:13- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  What an empowering bit of scripture!

Someone once asked me if I had a “life verse.”  This was several years ago, and at the time, I had never really considered it.  I had favorite verses, but I had never given any thought to one particular verse that directed my life.

There are many, many verses that I love; many, many verses that have spoken to me and given me guidance, conviction and hope during various stages of my life.

But there is one that has come back to me time and time again and is the closest thing that I could qualify as a life verse:

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.  Psalm 37:4

This verse regularly reminds me that when my sole focus and “delight” is in the majesty and will of God, my desires mold to His, and my heart finds true contentment.

But I’m curious about which words in the Bible speak to you.

Share with me:  Do you have a life verse?  In what way does it speak to you?
