May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
… being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
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.
As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
The LORD is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?
Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light.
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
In God, whose word I praise– in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.
