Chapter 6 Verse 12 - Today's Date in the Bible
Have you ever struggled with direction from God? Maybe during prayer you just cried out to God and said: "Lord, please show me direction - when I open my Bible please allow my eyes to land on the verse that will show me your answer." I have done this many times and most of the time I received an answer, or at least guidance to His next step for my life.
In this series, we will be doing something similar in randomness to the "open-the-Bible-anywhere" that I spoke about above. Recently I started thinking that there are areas of God's Word that I will probably never write about. I might be missing so many parts of Scripture that might be able to touch someone's heart. That's when I came up with this fun way to read parts of the Bible that we might never study.
This is how it will work - we will have the month represent the Chapter in the Bible and the day will represent the verse. Today is the 12th of June, so we will focus on verse 12 of the sixth Chapter of each book in the Bible. Obviously, this post would be extremely long if I included all of the 12th verses of every Chapter 6, so I am highlighting ten verses (sometimes I included a couple extra verses around the 12th for context). This series will continue on the third Sunday of every month (since Father's Day is on the third Sunday, I am doing this month on the second Sunday of the month).
"And the Angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, and said to him, “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor!”
"This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth."
" A worthless person, a wicked man,
Walks with a perverse mouth;
He winks with his eyes,
He shuffles his feet,
He points with his fingers;
Perversity is in his heart,
He devises evil continually,
He sows discord.
Therefore his calamity shall come suddenly;Suddenly he shall be broken without remedy."
"Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. And when it was day, He called His disciples to Himself; and from them He chose twelve whom He also named apostles: Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; James and John; Philip and Bartholomew; Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot; Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot who also became a traitor.”
"And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises."
"But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses."
1 Timothy 6:11-12
"I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red."
