Proverbs 30:5

King James Version

5 Every word of God is pure: 

he is a shield unto them 

that put their trust in him.

The day GOD made me born again, He fed me His WORD right away.

In great hunger, and thirst, I devoured the first four gospels.

Every passage from JESUS seems to speak to me.

Today marks my 43rd month as born again.

As if to make up for the long journey I took, GOD gave me a "shortcut".

He led me to these powerful verses on day one.

These shaped the work I was to do.

Of course, I wrote them on index cards.

That I may remember forever how it all began for me.

The main one was this:

Matthew 23:8-12

King James Version

8 But be not ye called Rabbi: 

for one is your Master, even Christ; 

and all ye are brethren.

9 And call no man your father upon the earth: 

for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

10 Neither be ye called masters: 

for one is your Master, even Christ.

11 But he that is greatest among you 

shall be your servant.

12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; 

and he that shall humble himself 

shall be exalted.

With those powerful verses in place, these followed soon after:

Matthew 6:34

King James Version

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: 

for the morrow shall take thought 

for the things of itself. 

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

King James Version

19 But when they deliver you up, 

take no thought how or what ye shall speak: 

for it shall be given you in that same hour 

what ye shall speak.

King James Version

20 For it is not ye that speak, 

but the Spirit of your Father 

which speaketh in you.

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand:

Be not afraid, 

only believe.

with the holy angels.

no, not the angels which are in heaven,

watch and pray:
