More than anything, I want to equip you to grow closer to God through the Weariness to Strength Grace Study. Today we are looking at Romans 5:1-11 but we are also going to see why writing out Bible verses will strengthen your faith.
Writing Out Romans 5:1-11
This whole passage is so strengthening for you as a mom. We need to build up our arsenal of verses for those times of discouragement when we feel weary.
Many years ago I discovered an amazing way to do this.
Writing out the Bible verses in a passage!
I love keeping a Bible Journal and since many years ago I had no idea how to study the Bible, I wrote out the verses that spoke to my heart.
It is unbelievable how the Lord will bring part or all of a verse back to your memory when you need it most.
When I was homeschooling our kids, they would write out a verse or two when they were little and longer passages when they were 12 and older.
It is an amazing thing to do!
Writing Out Verses on Index Cards for Peace on a Stressful Day
God can give you peace in the middle of a stressful day.
Why not be prepared by writing out some of the verses from Romans 5:1-11 on index cards?
He can give you hope. And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. Romans 5:5
I know you might be dealing with a difficult child or circumstance. Sometimes we are doing good just to get through the day.
Write out some or all of these verses on index cards to help cement a Word of encouragement into your mind and heart.
When we write out verses it helps us to meditate and think about what the Lord is impressing on your heart.
Writing out verses will help you slow down, think, and pray about what you just read in the Bible. It gets both sides of your brain engaged which is God’s way of bringing clarity and clear thinking into decisions you will make.
Peace with God Through Faith
Here is the passage to make it easy for writing out these verses. Stop and take the time to do this because it will eternally bless you!!
5 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Let me know how this week’s readings spoke to your heart. What is God doing in your life? What struggles are you dealing with so I can pray for you?
