Do you know what your birth verse is?
I had never heard of such a thing until I saw an article about it online that led me to a website: Find Your Birth Verse
All you have to do is enter in your birth month and day and it brings up a verse from Scripture that corresponds with the day you were born.
August 1st is my birthday and my birth verse is from Romans 8:1
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
I love the message from this book that Paul shares with us. For those of us who believe in Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord, there is no punishment. We are not condemned. We are free and forgiven. What a beautiful message this is!
While I absolutely love that verse, I decided to search every book of the Bible and look up the eighth chapter and first verse. I wanted to see if I could find a verse that really resonated with my life and spoke to me.
And I found it….
Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Joshua 8:1
I have struggled with fear for a majority of my life. Even though I was raised in a Christian home and have loved and known Jesus my whole life, I don’t remember ever truly praying through my fears and quoting Scripture to help me through it until just a few years ago. It has been a comfort to me to be able to find peace through fear in the pages of His Word. This verse from Joshua is spot on for my life and a great reminder that I am not to be afraid.
I decided to take both of these verses, turn them into a printable image, and place where I can be reminded of them each and every day.
