We’re exploring what the Bible has to say about hope in a series inspired by Hebrews 6:19, which talks about a hope that acts as
What does your personal Bible study look like? If you’re familiar with this blog at all, it’s no secret to you that I am completely in love with the Word of God! I have spent my life reading and studying it, falling deeper and deeper in love with its life-giving words, and with the One who gave them. My primary mission in writing is, and has always been, to point others to its truth in hopes that it will provide the hope and healing to others that it has brought to me and to my love.
I spend a lot of time showing you what the Bible says about a lot of things, but I think it’s high time I challenge you to learn how to go find those truths for yourselves!
The words are familiar to us all, “Joy to the world, the Lord has come!” The tune is burned into our heads as we dutifully
There are so many praise and thanksgiving scriptures perfect to help us through the holiday season as we seek to align our hearts with a spirit of praise and worship. Here at His Dearly Loved Daughter Ministries, we’re doing a lot to join in and make gratitude our objective. This list of 20 Psalms of thanksgiving and praise is just the beginning!
There is a little phrase peppered throughout Scripture. It shows up in several different forms, but they all mean the same thing. Over and over, God says, “Do not fear,” or “Don’t be afraid,” or “Fear not,” to His people.
What we want to know is, why should it matter to us? When God says, “Do not fear,” what reasons do we have to listen? How is placing our unwavering trust in God different from foolishly burying our heads in the sand in denial of legitimate dangers we are going to face?
As we look at some Bible characters who overcame fear, I hope we’ll be able to see our own struggles with fear through the lens of their stories and find victory in Christ. As we see how the fear of the Lord played into these Scriptures on deliverance from fear, may it further inspire us to learn how to bring our relationship with fear into a state of healthy balance.
Last week we started a series called Facing Fear. It is a Bible study on fear and faith, (click for whole series) and this week we’re learning about an interesting aspect of a right relationship with fear – the Fear of the Lord. We want to know, what IS the fear of the Lord, why is it important to fear God, and what does walking in the fear of the Lord look like?
FEAR. We all have the capacity to make it our constant companion. Chronic fear can paralyze us, keeping us stuck in misery and brokenness. This is never more true than in the aftermath of a shattered heart! When the world turns upside down, it can be difficult to figure out how to reconcile fear and faith.
Psalms 139 is one of my favorite chapters in the whole Bible. It paints a beautiful picture of God’s tender, intimate love and care for each of us! When we stop to consider who God is; how very great He is, it’s so humbling to then realize that He takes the time to know each of us so well. Who am I that He would consider me? Who am I that He would care about me? My life is but a breath and yet He counts me worthy of His great love! I am so thankful!
