For many years now, I’ve opened the Bible to 8:17 verses to see if anything would pop out to me as a prophecy for my life. I’ve attempted to compile the verses several times – I must say that it’s a lot easier to do electronically from a site like Bible Gateway than handwriting or retyping from a hardcopy. I finally compiled all the 8:17 verses this week. They read like a narrative. It may be many more years before I can articulate how each verse references my life. For now, I’ve highlighted the verses that speak volumes for me right now.
