I have to be honest, I did not do great job commiting time last week to memorizing 1 John 2:1 (Advocate & Righteous One), so I will be continuing to work on that. However, this week’s verse is Isaiah 9:6 and it encompasses 4 additional names of God and attributes of His character. I pray that I am willing and able to make this a priority and take the time to bury God’s word in my heart this week!
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6
“One of our greatest needs as women is to become women of the Word, so that our prayers, our responses, and our words are saturated with God’s way of thinking…Each of us should be able to use the Word effectively, not only in our worship and our own walk, but also in ministering to the needs of others. If we’re going to be women of the Word, we must make a priority of spending time daily in the Scripture – reading, studying, memorizing, meditating, personalizing, and praying it back to God – letting Him teach us His ways.”
