Memory Verses Of The Month

Here are my selected verses for the month of June ’17.  Each verse is intended to be memorized and meditated upon for a week.  I agree that it’s difficult at times to memorize scriptures but as you read over and over again they become part of you.  2 Peter 1:20 makes us understand that “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  In other words the scripture is itself a prophecy and I trust that He’ll look on his word to perform it. amen

Psalm 20:7 – Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God

Psalm 90:12 – So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Job 8:7 – Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.

Luke 5:32 – I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Ephesians 4:27 – Neither give place to the devil.
