We are on week 11 of the JOSHUA CODE - but if you want to catch up on the first few verses you can do so by going back a few weeks in the blog and looking for the same image as above!
take it one verse at a time, or feel free to just pick it up with us this week!
Here is last weeks and this weeks verses:
w e e k - e l e v e n
'G o d ' s p h o n e n u m b e r'
"Call to me, and I will answer you,
and show you great and mighty things,
which you do not know."
j e r e m i a h 3 3 : 3
. . .
WHAT IS PRAYER : 'prayer is the talking part of our relationship with the Lord, and it is vital for out own spiritual growth'.
WHY WE PRAY : 'we should pray because the Lord knows better tan we do about what we really need.'
WHEN TO PRAY : 'The Bible encourages us to "pray without ceasing" (1 Thessalonians 5:17).'
HOW TO PRAY : ' begin in prayer with confession; next pray with thanksgiving
which leads us to a prayer of praise; followed by prayer of intercession; then prayer of petition
and finally with prayer of communion ... this is the prayer that goes beyond mere words.'
. . .
'As you memorize God's phone number, meditate on the reality that prayer is a vital part of Scripture memorization and meditation. The Bible and prayer are inseparable. Call to Him... He will answer you... and He will show you- He will let you see - not just some things, but "great and mighty things, which you do not know".'
(The Joshua Code, pg. 69).
I love what Hawkins says in the introduction of this book talking about the 'Joshua Code':
'The Joshua Code is a challenge to keep God's Word in our mouths through memorization and to keep it in our hearts through meditation "day and night"'.
"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe 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"
j o s h u a 1 : 8
I pray that you continue to come back to the blog for the weekly verses as we learn and memorize scripture verses together and grow in faith and love together!
