Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (HCSB)
Note from Kip:
The greatest challenge we will find in our walk with Jesus, to failing to fully trust in what He says. It’s interesting that of all the spiritual gifts we can be blessed with the greatest is love. Love and trust Him; that is The Way.
This is how we have come to know love: He laid down His life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers.
1 John 3:16 (HCSB)
This is how we have come to know love: He laid down His life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has this world’s goods and sees his brother in need but closes his eyes to his need — how can God’s love reside in him?
1 John 3:16-17 (HCSB)
Lord, set up a guard for my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips.
Do not let my heart turn to any evil thing or perform wicked acts with men who commit sin.
Do not let me feast on their delicacies.
Psalms 141:3-4 (HCSB)
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.
Psalms 19:14 (HCSB)
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, because God’s glory illuminates it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
The nations will walk in its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it., Each day its gates will never close because it will never be night there. They will bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.
Nothing profane will ever enter it: no one who does what is vile or false, but only those written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Revelation 21:23-27 (HCSB)
What the law could not do since it was limited by the flesh, God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh like ours under sin’s domain, and as a sin offering, in order that the law’s requirement would be accomplished in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Romans 8:3-4 (HCSB)
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word,, you really are My disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
John 8:31-32 (HCSB)
Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable — if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise — dwell on these things.
Philippians 4:8 (HCSB)
You will keep the mind that is dependent on You in perfect peace, for it is trusting in You.
Isaiah 26:3 (HCSB)
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.
Psalms 139:23-24 (HCSB)
And just as it is appointed for people to die once — and after this, judgment — so also the Messiah, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.
Hebrews 9:27-28 (HCSB)
But who are you, a mere man, to talk back to God? Will what is formed say to the one who formed it, “Why did you make me like this?” Or has the potter no right over the clay, to make from the same lump one piece of pottery for honor and another for dishonor? And what if God, desiring to display His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience objects of wrath ready for destruction?
Romans 9:20-22 (HCSB)
