Self-Sufficiency and Heart Hiding {Week 25}


This is the first of two  Heart Hiding posts this week Self-Sufficiency and Heart Hiding {Week 25}.  By the calendar it is Week 35.  No matter the pace, I am enjoying Paul’s letter to Corinth.  I’m working on Week 29 — getting caught up in my posting!  Very soon we will go back to one post per week.

How about you?  How is your memorization going?

This is week 25 of  Heart Hidingwhere we are memorizing 2 Corinthians 1-5.  The first three verses talk about commending ourselves, and these three talk of finding our sufficiency in God rather than ourselves.

And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit:  for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

2 Corinthians 3:4-6

Is our trust in ourselves, or in God?  Are we proud or humble?  Self-reliant or God-reliant?

I am continuing to review  2 Corinthians 1:1-24 and 2 Corinthians 2:1-17, as well as 2 Corinthians 3:1-3.

As I have mentioned before, I have my verses in Scripture Typer, which reminds me to review previously learned portions on a regular basis.  I find that I often need more frequent review for better retention.

I received an email from a college friend today, thanking me for introducing her to Scripture Typer, which she in turn has introduced to some of her friends.  What a wonderful resource to be able to share freely!

The heart hiding {Scripture Memorization} page was updated recently.  You may want to check it out.  It is located  under the BIBLE tab, which is under the WORSHIP tab, which is just below the header (WordWorks).  The heart hiding page now has every heart hiding post linked to it, so that you no longer have to scroll through them all (and wait for them to load).

If you have a moment to share with others how God is using His Word in your life,

we would all be blessed and encouraged.  

Self-Sufficiency.  This is Week 25 of Heart Hiding, Scripture memorization, which will be posted on Sundays throughout 2014.   In case you missed  the previous posts, you can find them here:
