I recently heard two different speakers mention that they have a life verse. That got me to thinking about how I didn’t have one and haven’t ever really thought about it before. I have lots of favorite verses, but I’d never looked for one that defines my life and its purpose.
So in my prayer journal a few weeks ago, I mentioned it to God and asked Him to show me my life verse.
About a week later, as I read through the book of Colossians in my daily quiet time, God revealed it to me:
“My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
– Colossians 2:2-3
I love how God responds to us in such tender ways. I love how He provides us with answers to our questions. What a sweet Heavenly Father we have!
If you’ve found your life verse, I’d love to know what it is. If you haven’t found it yet, I’d love to hear how God answers you in the weeks and months to come.
