Sometimes reading the scriptures isn’t very enjoyable. I’m reading the Old Testament right now, and I’ve just finished 1 Chronicles. It gets repetitive and I don’t understand quite a lot of it.
But I enjoy it when I’m looking for verses and phrases that resonate with me and can help me in my life.
In the middle of genealogies and lists, I came across this verse:
Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the Lord God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.1 Chronicles 28:20
I don’t like every single verse when I read the scriptures, but I come to love the scriptures when I search to find the single verse that can help me.
