Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers…
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day.
He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
Surely He will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
But don’t just listen to God’s Word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.
Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with Me.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and He will flee from you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.
The grass withers & the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.
Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
Look at the nations and watch – and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. (NLT)
What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.” NLT
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–His good, pleasing and perfect will.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”
But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in You.
