What's This?

For the next three weeks, we will dive into 7 Scriptures to Guide Your Week. This week we start with seven Faith scriptures from our Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. What, you ask?

A friend shared with me recently that God’s word, the Bible, is our Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. I laughed out loud at the simplicity of this acronym for the Bible. Have you ever seen this one before? I had not.

The next season for me  will be filled with human pain and sorrow as dad (and the rest of our family!) deals with his terminal cancer.  At 91 years old, Dad doesn’t want to be healed. Why? He’s ready to “go home” to the Lord.

Based on that, I’m praying dad is pain free.  I’m also turning to seek God’s word, as that is where solace, comfort and joy are found. Do you find that’s true for you too and your faith is strengthened by His Word?

Did you know the Bible is our Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth? 7 Scriptures on FAITH to guide your week.

FAITH. Let’s focus this week on a scripture for each day centered on faith. God’s word tells us to have faith, yet what is faith? 

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11.1

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1

Things not seen. Assurance. Conviction. I believe, God. Thank You for Faith.

By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. Hebrews 11:3

By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
Hebrews 11:3

Created by the  word of God. Thank You, Lord. You spoke and things became from nothing – except Your word. You bless us.

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17

Faith comes from hearing. Did that say reading or praying? No. Hearing. And hearing the very word of Christ. So read your Bible out loud to hear His words. One of my dear friends played scripture though the night for her child. Can you imagine how full of God’s Word you would be if you had heard The Word of God every night of your life?

Thank You for this lesson, Lord. Imagine – a mom reads this and begins playing scripture (think Biblegateway.com on auto read!) each night to her child(red). What would a lifetime of hearing the Word of God do for us or our children? Faith. Unshakeable faith.

Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly. Matthew 15:28

Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly.
Matthew 15:28

Great is your faith! Oh how I long to hear those words. Let it be done for you as you desire. Can you feel the pull as your faith deepens knowing this is even possible? 

First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world. Romans 1:8

First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world.
Romans 1:8

Thank my God through His glorious Son, Jesus Christ! Yes, Lord, with great joy I thank You for Jesus. I proclaim my faith to all the world.  Oh, yea, this is the World Wide Web here, isn’t it? Glory Lord! Thank You for providing a way I can magnify Your Holy name in all the world.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, Ephesians 2:8

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
Ephesians 2:8

Saved through faith. Thank You, God. You are the gift-giver. I thank You for giving the gift of Your Son. I also relish digging into Your gifts, God. The Bible may be our Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.

It’s also a Treasure Chest filled to overflowing with Your divine, priceless gifts.  How fun it is to DIG into Your word. And find Your map, Your Son, Jesus. He is the way that leads us directly to You in the throne room of grace, Lord.

For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 1 John 5:4

For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
1 John 5:4

Overcomes the world – everyone born of God! We overcome the world. Victory is guaranteed.  Thank You Lord for reminding me that I fight the good fight of faith from a battle that’s already been won. Victory! You WIN. Your Bible tells us so.

Thank You, Lord, for sending us our Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. I thank You that my father introduced me to You, My Father God. Dad’s already read Your basic instructions and is ready to leave earth and come home to You. My prayer continues to be he remains pain-free. We praise You for that gift, Lord!

  2. Susan we need to hear your message weekly, they are so important in different levels for everyone.
    1 John: 54 gave me shivers when I read it……….

    Thank you Susan for your messages.

  3. I am so sorry to hear of the unfortunate diagnosis that you are now having to become acquainted with, Susan. Watching my uncle proceed through a similar diagnosis was so difficult, yet, He was so filled with God’s grace and His overwhelming love that he never once complained and was always always happy. He was an inspiration to us all to love no matter what. I know he had pain but he rarely let anyone know.

    And the acronym and scriptures are fantastic. I have never heard that stated quite like that either, so it made me smile to read it. Romans 10:17 was the very first scripture I committed to memory and like your description I had to tear it apart and look at every word. I have taught my children that we are to flood God’s Word into our eye gate, out of our mouth gate, so that our ear gate can here it and deposit into our heart. ( I also tell them to write it out as copywork, regularly, while saying and reading it and hearing it so that it becomes seed for the soil of their heart.)

    Great reminder.
    Blessings,
    Dawn

  4. What wonderful scriptures Susan and the pictures are beautiful. I am thankful that god has blessed me with faith in him. It grows stronger every day! Have a wonderful weekend and God bless!

  5. Susan, this is totally unrelated. The link up is completely messing with my head. I went to click on the blog in front of mine, got distracted and had to reopen your page. Then the linkup slots all switched places! They don’t stay in the same order once you leave a page.

    Mind games, haha! Anyway, just wanted to put it out there so that participants don’t assume that the person behind them didn’t want to visit their blog! Maybe they’re just multi-tasking like I was;)

  6. Susan, I love these scriptures. Thanks for sharing them with us. Praying that this time you have left with your dad will be memorable and blessed. And that he will be comforted and pain free in Jesus’ name!

  7. Such encouraging scriptures Susan, thank you! I will be praying for you as you enter into this important time with your dad. Prayers for comfort, peace, and that God would ease any physical pain.

  8. Susan, I’m reading in Hebrews 11 right now and I”m sure that it’s not by accident that this glorious truth has been thrumming in my brain — and here it is again in your first two verses! Your pictures are amazing!!
