One line of scripture can completely transform and change the direction of someone’s life.
The Bible is alive – a living document that feeds our soul, answers our questions, and ultimately points us to the truth in ALL things.
We’ve all heard that the Bible is powerful. But do you believe in the power of the living Word of God?
Do you believe one line of text on a page can change the trajectory of someone’s life?
One verse starts a journey leading to another verse. God’s hand leading you and directing your path, weaving scripture into a story He knows you need to hear.
One of our Romanian Ministry Partners shared how God used one verse to lead her through His word and impact her at the AIM Receive Conference.
First, she told us that she wrote down two words in her journal. The words “healing” and “rest” were her first thoughts as she dove into the question “what did I come to RECEIVE at this conference.”
She said, “Jesus, my good shepherd gently invited me to search my soul throughout the weekend: Did I need rest? Supernatural peace? Healing from deep wounds?”
She was seeking, and God was ready to reveal. He already knew what she needed to hear.
She says, “I was deeply moved by what the Father had to say to me during the Ezekiel exercise. The promise found in Ezekiel 34:12 gave me insight into the heart of my good Shepherd and the work He wanted to do in my family.
As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness.Ezekiel 34:12
She continued, “We had recently experienced some dark valleys together and were feeling scattered, oppressed, and hopeless. The cross-reference for verse 12 led me to read Joel 2:12.
“Yet even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;”Joel 2:12
The encouragement and hope I received from the Lord through that passage brought me to tears. God reminded me that the battle we were facing as a family was being fought on our behalf in the heavenlies.
The final cross-reference I read was Exodus 10:14, which further clarified the immensity of the spiritual battle we had been up against, and the enemy’s agenda of “destruction,” unlike anything we had faced before.”
“The locusts came up over all the land of Egypt and settled on the whole country of Egypt, such a dense swarm of locusts as had never been before, nor ever will be again.”
God moves through Scripture.
God knows what you need to see in His Word.
God wants you to know He is with you even in the small details.
She finished by saying, “I was able to pray in the quietness of my room, releasing the battle into God’s hands, and receiving His hope and promise to rescue and deliver our family from the enemy’s plan to bring destruction.”
One verse leads to another verse. Mindset shifted as God’s everlasting love and plan is revealed through His Word.
Consider how one verse could change everything for someone else. If you feel led to share God’s Word with someone, God may be speaking through you. So share His word with others. Even if it’s one verse, it may be the exact one they need to hear.
God gave you the Bible to use as a tool, and He can use one verse to change the game for you too. All great stories start with a single line of text, and yours is no exception. One single line from the Creator who knows His plan for you can point you in the right direction. Game Changer.
