Looking for a creative way to approach devotions?
The other day I spent some time looking up all the verses in the Bible with the reference 4:17. Why 4:17? Because my area code is 417. That’s the only reason. I know it’s not very spiritual but it was creative and I thought it would be fun to see what 4:17 verses said.
I looked through each book in the Bible and wrote down some of my favorites. Here are a few.
Exodus 4:17 And take your shepherd’s staff with you, and use it to perform the miraculous signs I have shown you.
2 Corinthians 4:17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.
I’d love to see what verses you found from your own area code. Leave one or two in the comment section and have fun allowing God to speak to you as He dials in.
