Siesta Scripture Memory Team - Verse #2

Yep, it is time for a new verse with:
SSMT 2011!!!
If you don't know about it, please visit Beth Moore's LPM Blog right here for more information.

So now it is time for our next verse.
We have new a new verse every 1st and 15th of the month.
I did memorize my verse from last time:
Psalm 27:13-14 NIV
"I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD, be strong and take heart and
wait for the LORD."

And my verse this time is:
Psalm 46:10 NIV
"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."

I actually had another verse picked out for this time, but God changed it. Praise His Name!!!

His ways are so much higher than mine.

You may be wondering why such a familiar verse. Well, although as Christians, we probably all know or have quoted this verse to ourselves or someone else, but I believe that God wants me to know where these very familiar verses are.

If asked where it was before now, I would have probably said Psalms or Isaiah, I need to KNOW. And that is what SSMT is all about, knowing the Word of God. So now if I'm asked I can direct that precious one to Psalm 46:10. Isn't that cool?

And the other thing I found out about this verse, as I researched it, was......wait let me back up.....I didn't know that the verse contained the last two sentences, so when I studied this verse I looked at different tranlations and in the KJV it says:
...."I will be exalted among the heathen...."
So I looked up the word heathen and one of the definitions used the word Gentile.
Now just how cool is that?

Now this Gentile, grafted in by grace, is exalting her God, OH YES!!
And I hope you will join me.
One big happy blog world

You did come here to have church this morning right?!! heehee
Love you all and go get in the Word.
It is SO worth it.


  1. LOVE that verse. I just saw a bloggy friend that does VLOGS on scripture - devotions - she's awesome - & one this week was on that verse!

    I loved that she stressed that part that says "I WILL BE EXALTED" ... no questions about it... I WILL BE!!! GO GOD!!!!

  2. Your excitement is contagious Dawn and I love your chosen verse. One of my favorite parts of that verse is the beginning...BE STILL....sometimes we need to remember to just do that (be still) and worship the Father, exalt Him for all He has done and quietly listen to His still small voice as it leads & guides us in life.

    I just posted my SSMT Verse 2 also!

  3. Another great verse!

    Exalting the God of ALL and the King of ALL kings with you, my sweet friend!
