I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. ~ Galatians 2:20
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith ~ and this not of yourselves, it is the gift of God ~ not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
~ Ephesians 2:8-10.
…for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
~ Philippians 2:13
…being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ… ~ Phil. 1:6
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand…
For I am the Lord your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you,
Do not fear;
I will help you.
~ Isaiah 41:10, 13
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life abundantly ~ to the full. ~ John 10:10
God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble…
Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
~ Psalm 46:1, 10
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. ~ Matthew 16:33-34
But I am like an olive tree
flourishing in the house of God;
I trust in God’s unfailing love
forever and ever.
I will praise You forever
for what You have done;
I will praise You
in the presence of Your people.
In Your name I will hope and trust,
for Your name is good!
~ Ps. 52:8-9
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, but must remain in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. The one who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing (no-thing).
~ John 15:4-5
You will keep in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
~ Is. 26:3
These things I have spoken to you so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world. ~ John 16:33
