Hand-Me-Downs

I’ve always known how important Scripture is in my life.  It was a tiny, now tattered Amplified New Testament that started me on this earthly journey toward God.

Every so often, I find I like to have a simple list of Scriptures to read: ones in a topical order that can touch and refresh my soul.

That is my gift to you today.  But be aware, it’s a gift of hand-me-downs.

Handed down to us over centuries to meet us where we are today.

Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous!  Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.  Joshua 1:9

And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14

Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence? 
Psalm 139:7

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1

that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. John 14:17

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. John 15:4

No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. 1 John 4:12

By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 1 John 4:13

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. John 14:27

I pray, that in times of unsettledness, that verses like this, can being you the comfort and peace that I find in them as I read how closely God wants us to walk with Him - and the joy of knowing, no matter what circumstance we find ourselves in today … we are never … ever … in them alone.
