Just One Little Verse

Isn’t it amazing how just one little verse really could cover everything you struggle with?  Not a verse here and there, but just one verse.

The very first verse that I felt the Lord “gave” me was in the book of Isaiah.  “Getting” a verse was new to me.  But I knew that I knew this verse was for me.  I would say it is my favorite verse, probably, in part, due to sentimentality, but it is a good one none the less.

Isaiah 41:10

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Or the Amplified.

Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.

If I truly believe this verse, I mean, come on, HE is with me!  HE is MY GOD!  HE strengthens ME.  HE helps ME! than why the struggle? 

What in the world do I have to fear, or be anxious over?  What in the world can I not do if HE does the helping and strengthening?  Just one little verse.

Then I read in Oswald Chambers today,

“How can anyone identified with Jesus Christ suffer from doubt or fear!  Our lives should be an absolute hymn of praise resulting from perfect, irrepressible, triumphant belief!”

How can I suffer from doubt and fear indeed!

Loving being His daughter,


Do you have ‘just one little verse’ that speaks volumes to you?  What is your ‘life’ verse?  Or, the first verse you ‘got’ from the Lord?
