Journeying with God

As a Christian, I have read the Bible a LOT. I try to do a full read through every year.
In doing this repeated practice, I have found that some verses just seem to stand out to me more than others.
I don’t know why this is, but I’m okay with that. I like to think that it’s God choosing these verses to communicate to me in a certain way.
My absolute favourite verse can be found in Isaiah 41:10, and it says:
“Fear not, for I am with you. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Having spent the best part of my life being bullied and put down, often scared to even go outside my front door, this verse brings me great comfort.
It isn’t necessarily the most dramatic, dynamic, or impactful of verses, but there is something in it that speaks to me deeply on an emotional and spiritual level.
I choose to believe that this verse is God, telling me that He is right beside me, and that it doesn’t matter what’s coming at me, because He will be there, and He will never let me go.
What are your favourite verses?
