On the Bible for Life page, we ask people to share their favorite Bible verses with us. We want, in turn, to share some of them with you:
I have a lot of favorite verses, but this one really sticks out to me! Because He chose us—me—to be holy and blameless in His sight. It’s just amazing, His love for us, and how He chooses us out of the world! It just blows me away!
This verse always seems to help me get through difficult situations. It reminds me that I need to give my problems to Jesus and let him handle anything I’m struggling with.
It just makes me think about all the things god has done for me that I had never expected.
I just love this part of the Bible so much. The fact that it reassures me again and again each moment of my life makes me grow in faith every day. And in my perspective, trusting God with all my heart is a very fundamental part of life for a teenage Christian.
NOTHING is able to separate us from God’s love. That is amazing.
I love this verse! It helps us trust in our God even more! What an awesome God we have that he would be our rock, our fortress and our deliverer.
This verse really shows everyone what we should boast in… it’s not our wisdom, not our might, and not our riches… but in the fact that we understand and know the Lord, that He exercises lovingkindness, judgment and righteousness in all the earth.
Whenever I start to feel like the world is pressing in too hard or that I can’t handle everything I have going on, I turn to Psalm 46. It reminds me that God is bigger than anything that I have to deal with and that I can turn to Him. He is my refuge and strength and He’s always there.
This passage constantly reminds me that God is completely trustworthy and I may never fully understand what is really going on (this side of heaven) and that is completely OK—not only that but it reminds me that He does lead and direct and has in the past… I can trust Him to work it all out… to His satisfaction.
This verse is so dear to my heart… As a college student away from Mom and Dad, it reminds me that my Heavenly Father is only a prayer away. "For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as the LORD our God is to us, whenever we call upon him?" Such powerful words—"whenever we call upon him"—he’s always there! The fact that these words were spoken to the Israelites, God’s chosen people, just makes me smile because it also reminds me that I’m a precious, chosen child of the Most High God and despite the fact that I’m only one person in comparison to an entire nation, he will never leave me or forsake me.
This verse is my favorite because it tells me that even though things in this world are constantly changing, Christ does not change. He has been and always will be the same; a solid rock to stand on in the midst of turmoil.

Even in the darkest times I am comforted by this verse. No matter what, my steps are ordered by the Lord.
