Just for Us: Bible Verses that Inspire My Life

The scriptures can only inspire us, if we believe the Bible was divinely inspired by God. If we acknowledge this truth; we must also concur that the scriptures convey God’s thoughts, his commands, as well as his wisdom and guidance. Every day we should trust in God’s word and use it to guide our lives; whether we are facing a crisis or coping with life’s daily struggles. God inspired the bible writers to record his infinite wisdom and incite, to benefit and give advantage to all mankind. God provides us with the necessary to tools that promote our thinking abilities and furnish us with the strength to overcome any obstacle or trauma that may befall us.

The omniscience of God is generously and freely offered to us; we only have to ask and seek for it in earnest.These facts are proven by the historical records and the collaborative writings of contemporaries, throughout the Bible’s written history (1513 B.C.E.-61C.E.)

As I read these scriptures, they remind me of God’s promises; they inspire me when I need to make critical choices, or enhance my relationships, even when I’m dealing with an unbearable situation. God’s knowledge is infinite, while mine is not. His knowledge and incite is unbiased; my bias often clouds my judgement.

Proverbs 3:5, 6 states, “Trust in Jehovah with all your heart. Do not lean upon your own understanding. In all your ways take notice of him, and he will make your paths straight.” When I trust Jehovah and follow his instructions; I have no reason to be anxious or worried. Living my life according to God’s standards gives me peace of mind. As I apply God’s counsel to my problems, they dissipate, without fail. When the road is straight, it becomes easier and more enjoyable; that road is actually our lives.

Knowing how to cope with problems or having less problems, results in reduced stress, which in turn leads to less health and emotional conditions. Reduced health issues results in lower medical costs. The benefits are endless, all because we trusted in Jehovah and applied his scriptural counsel in our lives.

2 Corinthians 4:7,8 states, “However we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the power beyond what is normal, may be God’s and not that of ourselves. We are pressed in every way, but not cramped beyond movement; we are perplexed, but not absolutely with no way out;”

We can have the constant pressure from our monthly bills, loans or car repairs. These pressures cause us much stress. God reminds us; as bad as our circumstances may be, they are not hopeless and we are not helpless because nothing is impossible for God. Seeking out god’s wisdom empowers us to act to our best advantage. God promises he will always provide a way out. Our confusion may muddle our thinking; God’s thinking is always clear, relevant and practical. It matters not, the time or the circumstances, God’s incite will resolve the issues we are dealing with, one at a time. We often compound our problems with unsound judgment. God’s thinking is the essence of soundness.

Sometimes fear grips us relentlessly. Recently I was diagnosed with hydrocephalus; cerebral fluid building up in the brain, as the result of a tumor. I was beside myself with worry; I was frightened by the serious consequences both surgeries could cause. The anxiety caused me many sleepless nights and I was besieged with bouts of depression.

God did not forsake me. I was inspired to read Isaiah 41:10, which states: “Do not be afraid, for I am with you; Do not gaze about for I am your God. I will fortify you. I will really help you. I will really keep fast hold of you with my right hand of righteousness.” God was speaking to me and telling me not to be afraid. He was holding me and protecting me with his right hand. In ancient times, the strongest hand was used to hold the sword during battle. God’s right hand was holding me and he would protect me. He would not protect me from dying; he would protect me from my fears; God would protect me from the uncertainty of an unknown future. God promised to reinforce my strength and to invigorate me——-and he did. He promised to help me endure——-and he did. He promised to encourage and comfort me——and he did.

I was prepared physically, emotionally and spiritually for my surgeries. My personal experiences substantiated my belief and trust in god. These divine scriptures affirmed the truthfulness of God’s promise and confirmed the wisdom of God to be valid and inspirational.
