This Is My Bible...

The other day I heard a phenomenal message at church called “The Secret To a Joyful Life”. Feel free to listen or watch it here.

The Secret To a Joyful Life

There was a part of the message where Pastor James MacDonald had us all hold up our Bibles and recite the following. I agree with every one of these statements. I found this extremely motivating to get more into God’s Word. I hope you do too.


This is my Bible.

I am who it says I am.
Matthew 5:16- In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

I can do what it says I can do.
Philippians 4:13- I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

I am going where it says I will go.
John 14:3- And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

God’s Word is milk for my soul.
1 Peter 2:2-Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation

God’s Word is seed for my faith.
Luke 8:11- Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

God’s Word is light for my path.
Psalm 119:105- Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

God’s Word is power for my victory.
Hebrews 4:12- For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

God’s Word is freedom for my life.
John 8:32-“and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

When I read God’s Word, it brings me joy.
Jeremiah 15:16- Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O LORD, God of hosts.

When I study God’s Word, it keeps me from shame.
2 Timothy 2:15-Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

When I memorize God’s Word, it purifies my heart.
Psalm 119:11- 11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

When I quote God’s Word, it defeats my enemies.
Ephesians 6:10,17- Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,

When I meditate on God’s Word, it brings me success.
Joshua 1:8-This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

When I abide in God’s Word, it gives me confidence.
John 15:7- If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

So, let’s get after it. Let’s get into God’s Word. Let’s commit to spending time in prayer with God. As Pastor James said in his message this week, “I don’t pray for trials to end. I don’t pray for wrongs to be righted. I pray for God’s will to be accomplished and for fruit to be born for His glory.”

I am a Bible believing follower of Jesus Christ!
