Psalm 86:15

But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth. (KJV)

But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in mercy and loving-kindness and truth. (AMP)

But You, O God, are both tender and kind, not easily angered, immense in love, and you never, never quit. (MSG)

My God is awesome! Merciful and mighty!

meditate

Meditate to focus one’s thoughts on : reflect on or ponder over
Joshua 1:8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. (NIV)

Luke 12:24-31

24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, who do you worry about the rest?

27 Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you–you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and those things will be given to you as well. (NIV)

  • Who wrote it? Luke
  • Who was it written to? Theophilus, Gentiles, and people everywhere
  • When was it written? About 60 A.D.
  • What is it about? A warning about worrying
  • WOW! While life will have its everyday concerns, it doesn’t pay to worry. We can make plans, but those plans shouldn’t rule our lives. God knows what we need and has promised to provide for us (Keep in mind that it  may not be in the manner we are accustomed to).

Jeremiah 33:3

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (KJV)

Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand). (AMP)

“Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous  things that you could never figure out on your own.” (MSG)

There was a bible study that I started on YouVersion last year that began each study session with a prayer to God: for Him to show Himself and new insight in each verse and passage that was read. I think this verse embodies that idea wholeheartedly.
