SSMT 2017: Verse 3!


Hey Everyone! Time for our next verse! Queen Esther and I are inching our way through the one-chapter book of Philemon so this puts me on the third verse:

Beth Moore from Houston, Texas: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philemon 3 ESV




I love, love, LOVE the verse below if you could use a recommendation this time around. I love what it promises. I love its rhythm. I love that it moves from “God is able” to the promise that frail humans like us who trust in Him “will abound in EVERY GOOD WORK.” Abundant life (John 10:10) abounds in good works. That, Darling, will preach.


And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.  2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV



I love you. I’m proud of you. May Jesus be all over you today, loved ones.

    Thank you so much for sharing this verse. I needed this powerful reminder at this very moment. I actually taught on this verse just last week in our Ladies Bible study. But I have been struggling with the truth, “All sufficiency-always-all things…” I am asking the Lord to increase my faith and to really know the truth of this Scripture. I often “feel” so insufficient. I was scrolling through your blog and saw this and it was a sweet reminder from our Lord of His promise. Now to believe it and act upon it. Blessings to all of you at LPM.
