Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.
Psalms 119:105 (HCSB)
For His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what He has made. As a result, people are without excuse. For though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became nonsense, and their senseless minds were darkened.
Romans 1:20-21 (HCSB)
“You are blessed when they insult and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of Me. Be glad and rejoice, because your reward is great in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
Matthew 5:11-12 (HCSB)
Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with the Messiah in God. When the Messiah, who is your life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.
Colossians 3:2-4 (HCSB)
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
Proverbs 27:17 (HCSB)
My soul, praise the Lord, and do not forget all His benefits.
He forgives all your sin; He heals all your diseases.
He redeems your life from the Pit; He crowns you with faithful love and compassion.
He satisfies you with goodness; your youth is renewed like the eagle.
Psalms 103:2-5 (HCSB)
Again I saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift, or the battle to the strong, or bread to the wise, or riches to the discerning, or favor to the skillful; rather, time and chance happen to all of them. For man certainly does not know his time: like fish caught in a cruel net or like birds caught in a trap, so people are trapped in an evil time as it suddenly falls on them.
Ecclesiastes 9:11-12 (HCSB)
