It's that time again scripture memory verse buddies of mine! February 15 brings us to our second memory verse of the month. How's it going so far? Do you find it fairly easy to memorize the verses or a bit difficult? If it's been a bit difficult for you, then (1) ask God to lead you to the verse He wants to challenge you with, and (2) don't try to take on a verse that is too lengthy. I always want to challenge myself with verses a little more difficult than "Jesus wept", but I don't want it to be so difficult that it makes me want to throw in the towel. We're talking consistency here friends. We simply want to create a habit of setting aside two days a month to select scripture to work on memorizing the other days of the month. That's it. Some months may find you choosing lengthier verses than others - that's okay. I would just caution you to not make that the norm but rather the exception.
For me, I had a very difficult time choosing a verse this time (hence the late posting this evening). I truly didn't feel any of the ones I looked at "click" with me. I kept praying and asking God to make it clear, but my mind continued to be a bit muddled. Then, I realized it all boils down to the fact that right now I'm seeking God on some very big matters, and I fully expect answers. Maybe not today but someday. I'm at that place that I don't like to be very often - waiting on God. But, it seems that I've found myself there a lot lately. I've also found that He doesn't want me to quit waiting either. There's a reason for the delay, so I have to trust that it's all for His appointed time. As I kept going over these thoughts over and over in my mind and kept searching the scriptures for the verse I was to begin memorizing today...He finally revealed it to me!!!
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
Habakkuk 2:3 (NKJV)
