Since2003,I've asked God for a verse to hold on to during the coming year.
Some years it's be 1 verse, some years 2, & some years many.
Many years I have wondered why in the world hit seemed God was giving me a verse or a passage.
And then as the year progressed, it became abundantly clear.
Maybe God knew what was up ahead? ;-)
I think these may be 2 verses for 2017.
They are both from the New Living Translation, first edition.
Don't be afraid, for I am with you.
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you.
I will help you.
I will uphold you with My victorious hand.
Do not be afraid or discouraged,
for the Lord is the One who goes before you.
He will be with you.
He will neither fail you or forsake you.
