Numbers 23:19 "God is not human, that He should lie, not a human being, that He should change His mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?"
2 Samuel 22:31 "As for God, His way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; He shields all who take refuge in Him."
John 17:17 "Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth."
The Life Application Bible says this about John 17:17 "Scripture points out sin, motivates us to confess, renews our relationship with Christ, and guides us back to the right path." See why reading it and applying it to our daily lives is so important?
The Bible is the best selling book of non-fiction. The Guiness Book of World Records says:
"Although it is impossible to obtain exact figures, there is little doubt that the Bible is the world's best-selling and most widely distributed book. A survey by the Bible Society concluded that around 2.5 billion copies were printed between 1815 and 1975, but more recent estimates put the number at more than 5 billion."
His word is living and active, and it endures forever. I have seen examples of that over and over in my life. For instance, because I was in Bible Study Fellowship leadership, I was blessed to take part in several of the studies multiple times over the years. I have been through many of them at least twice. I remember one year as I was studying Matthew for a second time, I said to one of my fellow leaders "I am so embarrased to say that maybe last time I did not study. I don't remember any of this." The reason was because my season in life had changed. God was speaking to me differently as I went through the same book again. So when you read that familiar scripture, don't just glance at it quickly. Ask God to show you something new. What does He have for you as you read it today? Remember, it is living and active. He will always have something for you even if you have read it over and over your entire life. Don't miss out on the blessing by skimming over His familiar word.
1 Peter 1:23-25 "For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For, 'All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.' And this is the word that was preached to you."
The Bible consitantly shares one great theme--the story of redemption, and it does not contradict itself. God promises to work through the Bible to accomplish His purpose including saving the lost.
Isaiah 55:11 "So is my word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."
The longest chapter in the Bible is Psalm 119; and the shortest is Psalm 117. And the middle verse of the Bible is (depending on the version; I use the NIV):
Psalm 103:2 "Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all His benefits."
