Here are some cool 9 things I found in the Bible today...

Psalm 9:9  The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed,
       a stronghold in times of trouble.

Psalm 99:9 Exalt the LORD our God
       and worship at his holy mountain,
       for the LORD our God is holy.

And then, check out these cool "nine" verses in the New Testament...

  1. Luke 15:7
    I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
    Luke 15:6-8 (in Context) Luke 15 (Whole Chapter)
  2. Luke 17:17
    Jesus asked, "Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?
    Luke 17:16-18 (in Context) Luke 17 (Whole Chapter)
  3. Acts 2:15
    These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It's only nine in the morning!
    Acts 2:14-16 (in Context) Acts 2 (Whole Chapter)

Reading the whole passages of the above "9" verses, I was so touched with God's passionate love over us, the importance for sincere and readily given thankfulness to Jesus, and the power of the Holy Spirit filling us so we can impact the world.  POWERFUL "9" STUFF!  The Bible never ceases to amaze me.  There is so much to read, so much to learn, so much to discover.  It is alive.  It changes us.

peace and k-love, Lis

Thank you Lisa and Eric for the wonderful idea of reading Proverbs for the month of October. I have been reading each chapter as I sit in the carpool lane waiting for my 1st grader. I ,too, have felt stale in my quiet time, and this has been refreshing way to get back on track.
