Free Scripture card – B – Be Strong and of a good courage


Promises from the bible.

My Mum told me all the Jesus stories and I absolutely loved them. But when she told me those stories, all these years ago,  I didn’t realise that Jesus was a real person. The way I understood the stories as a child was that Jesus was more like a mythical figure. It wasn’t till years later, when I started to read the bible in earnest, that I came to understand the significance of Jesus’ life and the promises and lessons to be learned from the bible.

Scripture cards

So even though throughout my life I’ve carried around handwritten scripture cards with me and found comfort in them, it wasn’t till much later in life that I recognised the real power and energy of the promises made by our Creator and his Son and the fulfilment of these promises in the lives of real people as mentioned in the bible.

What is love again?

I never thought, like some do, that the stories in the bible are fairy tales. But for most my life I didn’t recognise the reality of the biblical history and the message of the Jewish people. It was only when I became seriously ill and at death’s door that I saw the pitiyfulness of life unless it is filled with true love and dedication to this love. What is love again? According to the Holy Word,

This is the love of God, that we keep his commandments
and his commandments are not hard to keep.

You may well be thinking; what is it with this girl and the commandments? I tell you why I love the commandments so much. My life wasn’t filled with rules and regulations, in my life pretty much everyone did whatever was good in their own eyes. It didn’t work for me. It got me in trouble and it got me ill. As you can imagine in a family where everyone just makes up rules as they go along you’ll find sheer anarchy. Once I ‘discovered’ God’s rules for loving each other, and consciously started to make an effort to stick with those rules, my life just changed miraculously.

Rule number four, rest one day a week

come unto me and I will give you rest

For instance, we’re told to rest one day a week. I don’t know about you but I certainly didn’t ever, rest that is. Once I started to obey the commandment to rest, my whole life started to change around for the better. What follows when we obey this commandment is the peace and knowledge which comes with the understanding that God is in charge and there is nothing you can do by working 24/7 that is going to change that.

God himself rested on the seventh day, after he created our universe. What’s good enough for my Creator, is good enough for me. I’m not arguing with a day of rest but gratefully accept this blessing in my life to completely rest and hang out with friends and family and read scripture and maybe even fit in a good deed here and there.

Be strong and of a good courage

The scripture verse quoted on the second scripture card is taken from the Book of Joshua and we’re reminded in the first book of Joshua to follow all of God’s rules. The promise is, as was given to Joshua and fulfilled,  that as long as we follow God’s commandments, we will prosper, have good success, find that God will be with us wherever we go and He won’t fail nor forsake us.

Joshua 1:9 Be strong and of a good courage

When anything goes awry in our life and this happens in my life all the time, don’t freak out, panic or allow your emotions to take you on a roller coaster ride, just remember that God is in charge and all we need to do is be strong and of a good courage.

I so wish that I had these cards when my children were little and instead of too many hours of counselling sessions and time spent in therapy I could have kissed away their tears, handed them a bible and this card, and said, ‘Darling, just do the right thing and be strong and of a good courage.’

SCRIPTURE ALPHABET A

Another amazing scripture verse

One of the most amazing scripture verses I’ve come across is where we’re told to ask and it shall be given to us, to seek so that we shall find.

The other day I shared with you one of my favourite scripture verses, With God all things are possible’ and I told you how applying this verse to my life got me a, near enough, instant response. I mentioned that I asked for $15000. The amount just popped in my head. At the time I had bills to pay and I needed treatment for various ailments. I had asked for plenty things before but never been so bold as to ask for a sum of money as large as that.

This money, plus more, was actually owed to me because shared property had been sold off. I didn’t know this however at the time of my request. The next day I boldly repeated my request and very much to my surprise a cheque was written out in my name. Without my prayer and bold request I doubt if I ever would have found out about this money that actually belonged to me.

Ask anything according to His will

What I learned is that GOD’s WORD is true and He never speaks idle words. I want my children to experience the same comfort and help I get from reading and applying scripture verses in my life. To remind us all of our favourite verses I used to write them on cards and place them in strategic places such as in front of the bathroom mirror, in our purse and on our desks and so on. How I wish that I had known about these wonderful verses when my children were younger. Not to worry though, we’re certainly making up for lost time now.

Instant antidote to depression and anxiety

These verses are an instant antidote to depression and anxiety. Till I read the bible I didn’t have an authority figure in my life to whom I could go to with my woes and worries for feedback and advice. Now I’ve finally mustered up the courage to go to and ask the highest authority, my only problem is to keep the small stuff to myself and not sweat it. I don’t even have to wait in line. I’m pretty sure this goes for all of us, as long as we ask according to His will, we can be pretty sure that our wishes are heard and will be fulfilled; how good is that? To know this with absolute certainty has brought a lot of peace to my life.

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that,
if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask,
we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

All the promises in the bible are true and if you don’t believe me I suggest that you try them out for yourself and see what happens. I asked to be kept alive and I was, I sought for holistic treatments and received these, I knocked on many doors and I’ve received such wonderful responses that some days my cheeks are barely big enough to carry my grins.

Ask and it shall be given you

Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

For every one that asketh receiveth;
and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Reading through the bible gives me an enormous amount of comfort and inspiration and I like to think that these verses will do the same for you. Feel free to share and use these scripture graphics for personal use anytime you feel a little stuck or in need of a helping hand. You may be surprised to find that help is just around the corner. What have you got to loose? Just ask.

The Lord said, ‘You have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.’

God spake to us from heaven. wow! As in really, we have all these witnesses. That is an incredible story and wonderful witness account.

The Creator of the universe spake to us from heaven. What did He say?

I looked it up. It’s powerful stuff. He gave his kids some rules to abide by. Really simple. Just ten of them. That’s all. According to scripture these rules link in with living forever. Check it out. See what you think.

With Valentines day coming up I like to share with you what some of our prophets and apostles have to say about love. And this is a mere snippet of what has been said about love in the bible.

From the prophet Moses and other wise men.

What did the prophet Moses have to say about love?

What doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways,
and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,
to keep the commandments of the Lord …
to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul,
that thou mayest live.

Moses said to love Go(o)d with all our heart and all our soul, to walk in all his ways and to keep his commandments, so that we may live.

Moses also said to love the stranger as ourselves.

Other wise men and prophets said the following on loving and obeying God. By Joshua, “Now fear the LORD and serve him with all faithfulness.” From Nehemia, “O Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments.” From the prophet Jeremiah: “But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.” Daniel: “O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments.” Micah: “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

All these wise men agreed with Moses that it shall be well with us when we love God, which is akin to being obedient and following his directions.

Jesus repeated what Moses said about loving God and our neighbour

Jesus reiterated what Moses said about loving God, each other and how this ties in to eternal life.

When someone asked Jesus how to obtain eternal life he responded as follows according to the account of his disciple Matthew,

 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

On another occasion, when the Pharisees tried to trick Jesus and asked him to come up with just one commandment, Jesus summed the commandments up as follows:

 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

The following account, on how loving ties in with eternal life, is from the Gospels by Luke,

 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength,
and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

In addition Jesus told us to not only love our neighbours but also love our enemies,

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good … Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Has anything changed with regards to love and obedience?

Around three and a half thousand years ago Moses told us that God said that He will be, shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Jesus reiterated this message when he said, if ye love me, keep my commandments. And he added,  He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

A message of love

So what did God say when he spoke to us from heaven? He send us a message of love. He told us how to love each other. I like the commandments because it sets an easy moral standard to live by that we can all adhere to. The commandments are a message of love. It is a standard which was set in heaven for human beings to stick to. Living by this standard guarantees a loving spirit.

I know that there are churches nowadays that teach their followers that they have been made holy simply by believing and having faith. What message does apostle John have for these churches?

Apostle John on love

Apostle John said that he that loveth not knoweth not God: for God is love, and he also said the following,

This is love that we keep his commandments

About love

And more from apostle John on love,

And this is love, that we walk after his commandments.
This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning,
ye should walk in it.

Let me know what you think. Share with me in the comments below.
