“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise” (Heb 10:23 NLT) //I love this verse. It is one of the top scriptures in my arsenal for fighting the lies of the enemy. It cautions us to hold tightly to the hope we affirm, or to our faith, depending on your translation. From we…

“Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts; let them proclaim your power” (Psa 145:4 NLT).

“Tell your children about it in the years to come, and let your children tell their children. Pass the story down from generation to generation” (Joe 1:3).

“Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up” (Deu 6:7).

//Okay. So two of these three verses technically refrain from using the word ‘story,’ but I think they capture the meaning of the word, so we are just going to go with it. Each of these verses talks about passing information on to the next generation. They imply the need to keep stories alive and continuously talk about things. However, each passage is about three very different accounts.

 “The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving” (Psa 28:7 NLT). //There are two things I noted about this verse. First is the juxtaposition of strength and shield. Aren’t they kind of opposite, yet symbiotic? It reminds me of cliches like “a…

 “I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lam 3:19-23 NIV). //If anyone ever tried…

I selected this verse before news of the Las Vegas shooting broke. After learning of the tragedy, I didn’t want to use it. Verses like these are hard to digest. How could a loving and good God allow something so senseless and horrific? My heart aches for the victims, their families, and all those impacted by this inexplicable violence. Equally, I long for the day when Christ’s kingdom is restored and evil is irradicated once and for all.

In the wake of calamity such as this, it is important to remember who God is; to focus on the truth of His character so we don’t succumb to the lies of the enemy.
