20 Powerful Bible Verses to Live By

by Pamela Rose Williams · Print Print · Email Email

Many people like to repeat words of wisdom that they can live by. For example, I have a motto: Christianity is not just for once a week; Christianity is for Every Day. I believe that we should be a walking testimony for Jesus every day that we live on this planet. The Bible has many words and verses to live by. Here are twenty of my favorite Bible verses to live by.

We Are His Sheep: He Leads and we Should Follow

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 (KJV) Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

Psalms 5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.

Psalms 23:1,2 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.

Psalms 25:5 Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.

Psalms 143:10 Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground!

God Deserves All the Glory and Praise

Psalms 30:11,12 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever!

Psalms 71:8 My mouth is filled with your praise, and with your glory all the day.

Psalms 106:48 Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! And let all the people say, “Amen!”  Praise the LORD!

Psalms 145:1-3 I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.

Isaiah 43:10,11 “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me. I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no savior.

Remember to be Thankful

Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

Acts 17:26-28 And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for “‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’

Romans 11:36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

Philippians 4:10,11 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

1 Timothy 6:17 As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.

A Christian’s Attitude

Psalms 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

Psalms 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah

Matthew 5:42-45 Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you. “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,  so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. (Jesus’ words)

Romans 12:1,2 (KJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.

Absolutely! Our walk with the Lord never ends! I think this is one of the most important lessons that we must teach our kids (& grandkids!). Last year a friend of mine mentioned that she and her kids used to memorize a proverb every week while they were young. Since then, I’ve added this to my own family’s routine & the Lord has spoken volumes to me through it!


Pamela Rose Williams August 25, 2012 at 9:33 am

Such a great idea. I read a Proverb a day but have yet to memorize them all 🙂 thanks for sharing Sara

Where in the Bible does it say not to sue people? I thank anyone for your help.

Hello Jean. Paul is speaking to the Church at Corinth in 1 Corinthians 6:1-7 when he says Christians should not take a matter against another Christian to a secular court. I find three reasons for this: 1. The court outside if the church does not judge with a Christian standard; 2. Taking a case to a secular court presents the wrong motive; 3. It reflects poorly on the Church.

Important to note this applied to Christian vs Christian only,
