Here are the top five online shared Bible verses on the Internet.
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
This is the most shared online Bible verse of all, according to You Version. For many years John 3:16 was the most shared Bible verse of all but this verse has been consistently among the most shared online Bible verses for several years and has finally become the most bookmarked, highlighted, and shared among all Bible verses that people share online.
Isaiah 40:31 “but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
I will paraphrase what D.L. Moody once who was asked about his tireless efforts for the Lord; “Don’t you get tired of doing all these things for the Lord?” to which he replied “I am tired in the ministry but not tired of the ministry.” We all grow weary at times but if we wait, like Elijah under the broom tree and was fed by an angel of the Lord some fresh water and baked bread (1 Kings 19:3-8), we “shall renew [our] strength” and then “mount up with wings like eagles” who are the strongest of all birds of prey which is why they never grow “weary.” By waiting on the Lord, Elijah was able to travel “forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God” (1 King 19:8).
Matthew 6:13 “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”
The literal translation is to “deliver us from the Evil One” or Satan. To be delivered from the Evil One will help us avoid being led into temptation.
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
God repeated the line “be strong and be courageous” three times (Joshua 1:6-9) which in the Hebrew literature, is the strongest emphasis possible and we can take this to heart because for those who are His children, “the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” That should strengthen us for the times we need to be strong and be able to conquer fear and be courageous.
Philippians 4:6 “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
We all have anxiety at one time or another but Paul has the solution; “in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know to God.” A key here is “in everything” pray about it…and with prayer add “thanksgiving.” It is hard to be anxious when we are giving thanks for all the blessings we do have.
Maybe because so many doubt their own salvation, Romans 8 was the most frequently read chapter in all the Bible and who can blame anyone for that because there is such an amazing conclusion to it, “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom 8:38-39). Amen!
May God richly bless you,
