Day 20| 31 Day Scripture Challenge

Here we are at day 20. My memorization for the last 2 days has been speaking of chastening from the Lord. Painful (sometimes VERY painful) for the present but promises the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who are trained by it. It is my prayer that by the grace of God I am trained by it and that I submit to the molding of my Creator so that He can do His good work in me!
I listened to a great 5 minute message today and thought it fit perfectly with our challenge to memorize the word of God. It blessed me today, so I am sharing it with you all in hopes that it will also bless you! It will only take 5 minutes and is guaranteed to encourage you to continue saturating your mind and heart with the word of God!! :)

Day 20:

“Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”
Hebrews 12:9-11

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. I pray that my feet will be shod with the gospel of peace…Thanks for sharing the message…It made me realize that perhaps God is preparing me through this scripture memorization to share a special message of His salvation to someone very near to my heart who may be close to death. It is my only sibling, my younger brother who has refused in his life to acknowledge God. It is not as if I can just share my faith…I have done that. It is the Holy Spirit that will have to overflow with words of life that he will receive. I hope to be visiting him… not this weekend, but the next. Please keep me in your prayers and my brother.

    Praying that He will do His good work in you and in me!

    These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said , Father, the hour is come ; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou
    hast given him. John 17: 1-2

    1. “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

      Thank you so much for sharing. I just prayed that the Lord would prepare you to share the message of salvation to your brother and will continue to pray. Both for your brother’s salvation and physical healing and that the Lord would work through you to do a mighty work in your brother’s life. God is good and mighty to save!!

  2. Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
