The wording in the Amplified version is more detailed but! Not the wording that struck me that day. Roxana lives far away from me so I could not get a hold of my Living version.
After much struggling to find the quote, I purchased the digital version from e-Sword but for whatever reason I never downloaded it.
Anyhow, I have read the Scriptures in many different versions. The wording is almost the same wording in most that I have read. So? I no longer read other than my Amplified.
But sometimes there are verses in my memory with words that do not exactly match the Amplified or any other version to my knowledge. Today is one of those days.
I never know what I am to write on any given day. You lead me. I follow what You bring to mind. Today, reflecting on the family in this world, somehow, I came to look for the Scripture about the flesh.
None of the wording in the downloaded versions satisfied whatever I remember about that Scripture. Suddenly! The Living version came to mind.
Hum! I need that version but it’s a pay download. It’s OK. Today, I’ll pay and download it. I clicked the download button. Then the purchase button. At the purchase screen I see that I have an account with them. What?
I clicked to checht it out. What? History of purchases? Wow! I purchased the Living version in 2018 but never downloaded it, why? Beats me!
Here, all this time, that purchase? Completely out of my mind. Talking about a miracle? Indeed! You led me to the version You used to open my mind at that crucial moment in my lifetime.
First Scripture I copy/paste, not the one about the flesh, but the one I been looking for all these years. Lost and found like me. I was lost in bickering and complaining but You found me out! Quote:
Jeremiah 15:19-21 TLV
The Master replied: “Stop this foolishness and talk some sense! Only if you return to trusting me will I let you continue as my spokesman. You are to influence them, not let them influence you!
They will fight against you like a besieging army against a high city wall. But they will not conquer you, for I am with you to protect and deliver you, says the Master.
Yes, I will certainly deliver you from these wicked men and rescue you from their ruthless hands.”
