Whether you place an inscription on the pages of a gift Bible, on the inside of a wedding band or in a simple letter to a friend, the best Bible inscriptions are the ones that encourage and lift up the reader. A thoughtful inscription during a trying time or in honor of a special event can influence someone for a lifetime.

1 Philippians 4:13

Nurture an

Philippians 4:13 reads, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." This Biblical inspiration can give the weariest of souls the strength to continue when things get really tough and they feel like they just can't go on. Believers in Christ know where their strength comes from and seeing these words inscribed on a gift is a constant reminder of God's promise in a positive "can do" affirmation statement.

2 Joshua 1:8

Be a good student of the Bible.

Joshua 1:8 reads, "Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful." It is inspiring to know that everything we need is written for us and left as a road map for believers in Christ to prosper and be successful. A Bible inscription with this verse can remind believers that like everything else we learn, you must study and practice it as it is intended to be successful.

3 Psalms 118:24

Rejoice in the simple things every day.

Psalms 118:24 states, "This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." It is so easy to get wrapped up in the bad things that happen all around us or to want more and more every day. Reading Psalms 118:24 can bring the reader back to reality. If you're alive and breathing, you have a reason to rejoice in that alone.

4 Proverbs 18:10

The Lord is a tower of safety for those who believe.

Proverbs 18:10 says, "The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe." An inscription of this Bible verse can bring the recipient the comfort of knowing that there is protection for those who live a Godly life in the name of the Lord. All they need is to call on the name of the Lord in the presence of danger to reap the rewards of being devoted and faithful to Christ.
